Editor’s Note: With pretty much all entertainment being shutdown around the city, a drive-in movie theater is one of the few ways left you can get out and enjoy some entertainment with your family while still practicing safe social distancing. And for today only, Showboat Drive-in is offering an extra dollar off their Groupon deal!
Looking for a place to relax this weekend? One night out won’t break the bank! As always, we bring you the best things to do in Houston on the weekend for a few bucks. And today’s offer is one you definitely don’t want to miss.
Whether it is night with family, a simple date, or an evening with friends, Showboat Drive-in Theater near Tomball is always a fun time, and right now, Groupon is running a special offer to help you save a few bucks on your visit! For only $9, you can see a double feature of the latest movies with two screens — one of which shows family-friendly movies — to choose from and enjoy a small popcorn and medium soda!
What’s so special about this deal? Where else can you see two movies in a retro drive-in setting for just $4.50 each while also enjoy some popcorn and a drink?
You don’t have to cancel your night because of a tight budget; you can still enjoy these fantastic movies that’ll be showing starting at 7 PM on Fridays and Saturdays and 6:45 pm on Sundays. When summer comes around, the theater is open every night.
Want to bring your kids? It’s free for children below 3; otherwise, it’s $6 extra. And remember, one of the screens is always showing a family-friendly double feature, so there’s always a great option for the kids to enjoy. Plus, there’s even an on-site playground where the kids can run and around and have a good time before the first movie and during the intermission (playground is closed when the movies are showing).
And if the free popcorn and soda isn’t enough to hold you over during the double feature, the on-site concessions stand has plenty of other affordable foods and drinks to keep you satisfied.
Get this deal from Groupon before it’s gone, and make sure to check other amazing offers we’ve collected for you all throughout our site.
