Free Family Movie Night from General Mills: In Store Specials Nationwide

Lucky Charms and Trix and Movie Tickets

With Whole Grain and Calcium in every box of General Mills cereal, you can be confident serving your kids their favorite kid friendly cereals. Plus, for a limited time, you can receive a Free Movie Ticket when you purchase two specially marked packages of Big G cereals including Honey Nut Cheerios® (17 oz.), Cinnamon Toast Crunch® (17 oz.), Lucky Charms® (16 oz.), Trix® (14.8 oz) and Reese’s Puffs® cereal (18 oz.).

My kids love BIG G (General Mills ) cereal. We like to have a variety of cereal to keep the mornings exciting around our house. We were able to sample 2 of our favorites, Lucky Charms and Trix. No surprise, our whole family liked both. I was surprised though that my kids enjoyed having BOTH at the same time! Who knew Lucky Charms and Trix mixed together could be so, um, tasty. My fave is Cinnamon Toast Crunch, loved it since I was a kid. Isn’t it funny how food can bring back good memories from your childhood?

How to get Free Movie Tickets from General Mills

After purchasing two participating cereals, visit to enter the unique code found inside each box of cereal and print your free Movie Cash certificate (good for one admission of up to a $12 value at participating theaters). Find a participating theater in your town.  I love this promotion. General Mills is such a family oriented company as it is. Now, they are offering parents a chance to take their family out to the movies for free. We love movie night but with the expense, we don’t go out often. When we do, it is a treat!

Unlike coupons, you can use these Movie Tickets for any movie up to $12, including 3D and movies that say No Passes. They treat these tickets as traveler’s checks! We went to see Tangled in 3D at the Montrose Regal Cinema and loved it!My kids were reaching out into the air trying to reach for the 3D objects. I found myself watching them and their facial expressions more than the movie at times. I just love to see my kids experience new, fun, and exciting things, don’t you?! What is better than that?

Believe me, these General Mills cereals are great by themselves but with this incredible movie ticket promotion, they MORE than pay for themselves. Stock up now, especially if you see them on sale. I know I am! I can’t pass up a great deal and free family movie night out.

  3. Nicole Greene says:

    I make movie nights special by making popcorn with our popcorn maker, buying a King size candy bar, and blowing up the air mattress to lounge in front of the TV to watch the movie :)

  4. April says:

    We like to play movie games – stop halfway through and try and guess what happens next. Or play trivia games about the movie itself while watching. It makes it interactive.

  5. Sharon says:

    Our Movie cinema is out of town… so we usually go shopping (if we can) and eat somewhere beofre or after the movie.

  6. Janet Carpenter says:

    We take turns picking the movie and picking the snack. It’s always special because we are together.

  7. Deborah Wallin says:

    Your Chocolate Cheesecake Bars Recipe looks delicious. I have all of the ingredients except for the carmel. I will have to buy some and try it this holiday season.

  8. Deborah Wallin says:

    we turn off all cell phones and electronic devices, pop up some popcorn, get out the soda and candy, turn down the lights, and let the movie begin.

  9. amy warren says:

    we pop popcorn on the stove and sprinkle it with cheese, then all crawl onto the couch and watch our favorite family movies together.

  12. Tracey Hodges says:

    We (being hubby and me lol) make the living room into our own theater…fresh popcorn, lights out, no phones, and NO talking! LOL I can’t do that of course

  13. Jason says:

    We make it special by making our movie nights at home feel like a night at the theater. We bought the popcorn cups they have at the real theater for our popcorn, we buy the boxed candy (usually $1 a box at the store) and let our kids have a soda (a real treat for them). Then we all snuggle up on the couch and enjoy the show!

  14. Zoey Smith says:

    I like to make movie nights special for my family by carefully selecting a movie that will be enjoyable to everyone.

  15. Shannon says:

    Movie nights are special for us because we rarely splurge on a movie out. So, we try to make it a fun event and go out for ice cream or hot cocoa after the movie to talk about the movie, our likes/dislikes, and its messages. Sometimes we stay in for a movie night with a video from redbox and collect pillows & blankets from around the house and all snuggle up together on the floor with popcorn!!

  16. Christina Andre says:

    we make movie night special by lighting the fireplace and popping popcorn and we make smores in the fireplace and sit on the floor to watch a movie.

  17. robin w says:

    To make movie night special we get the biggest popcorn and pop they have and share it. My husband gets a kick out of finishing up the pop and then handing it over to us empty lol.

  18. Amber Porter says:

    We make it special for movie night by all of us will go, the small kids and big kids alike will see the movie.

  19. Courtney Stoffel says:

    We make movie night special by letting the kids pick what movie they want to watch. 1 kid get”their” night to pick.

  20. Melissa Barnes says:

    movie night is always special because we dont usually go to the movies – maybe 2 or 3 times a year so just that in itself is a total treat and we get drinks at the theater and usually smuggle candy in lol

  21. Joyce Harrell says:

    We make movie night special by having special little boxes for our popcorn (Target for $1) and we have all sorts of special toppings for our popcorn. Everyone loves it and loves getting it all together so we can watch a movie together.

  22. Chad K says:

    We make movie nights special by introduing the other members of our family to classic films from the golden age of hollywood, most of which fit the family friendly bill. THANKS!

  23. Denise B. says:

    I like curling up on the couch with pillows and blankets and make hot chocolate, popcorn, and finger foods.

  25. Brady McLeod says:

    We look to see which kid friendly movie is coming out that week, and then on Friday morning we pick up that movie and some snacks and bring out the body pillows with the 4 kids and lay on the floor watching the movie together as a family.

  26. Sharon Harmon says:

    We make different flavors of popcorn, (parmesan, chili powder, garlic powder, caramel), we bring out big fluffy pillows, and after the movie we each give a review! ;)

    We make it special by letting everyone pick their own treats and sharing them. Of course popcorn is required and lots of chocolate

  29. Jennifer Kimberly says:

    We make these nights special by letting our two year old pick the movie! We are lucky she usually sits through at least half of the movie!

  30. Alicia Webster says:

    I make movie nights special for my family by bringing a whole lotta $$$ to the theater. There are five of us, and everybody wants a different drink, and their own thing of popcorn, and their own package of candy. And then they’ll want to go out to eat afterwards…

  31. Jerri Mathew says:

    Movie night when we stay in– We eat dinner, pull out the fold out couch… the kids bring all the pillows down and we pile them everywhere. Pop popcorn and we watch movies the rest of the night!

    Movie night out– I take the tickets for the latest showing. We put on our pajamas, head to the theater, buy popcorn and candy, and its our midnight pajama party!

  32. Betty N says:

    making movie nights special…start with “fun” food for dinner (like pizza); limit snacks at movies because they are really expensive) then head for ice cream cones before heading home.

  33. Tiffany says:

    We make them special by making it a big deal. Even if it’s just a movie at the house. Lights get dimmed, popcorn made, some form of snack at the ready…

  34. Margaret Smith says:

    Commented on your Chocolate Cheesecake Bars Recipe and been voting everyday.
    Thanks again.

  35. Margaret Smith says:

    We like to let the kids vote on a movie that they’d like to see.
    We also like to make popcorn & treats for the family to enjoy.
    Thanks so much.

  36. devon says:

    we love to have movie nights at home, all of us snuggle in our jammies and blankets and watch a kid friendly movie. We make popcorn too! fun night for the kids.

  37. connie black says:

    We have movie nights once a week where no one is allowed to have their phones on (including the house phone, which also gets set on DND). We also pop popcorn and just sit quietly which doesn’t happen much in my house! :)
