Her kids could choose from two films, with a ticket costing $5 (£4.07), while cookies, candy and popcorn was an extra charge.
As well as giving her kids a treat, the mum revealed they had to earn ‘movie money’ by cleaning their rooms and doing chores.
She said: “Can’t go to the movies, so we brought the movies to us!
“In order to earn movie money, they had to clean their room with no help. (Mostly no help anyway). They loved it!”
Her post was shared on Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, where it’s been liked more than 3,000 times.
Parents praised her creativity in the lockdown, adding they might use her idea to get their kids to tidy their rooms.
One mum said: “Food prices way too cheap for a cinema. (Great idea kids would love this).”
Another wrote: “This is a brilliant idea.”
A third said: “What a fab idea, I'm going to do this for my two.”
While this mum added: “Good idea for kids to keep their rooms tidy.”
And another commented: “Love this idea! I might pinch it.”
And we revealed kids should be doing chores by 18-months-old – and here'swhat they need to do and when.
Mums reckon the 30 day Lego challenge is the perfect way to keep the kids entertained during coronavirus lockdown.
