Pixar Summer Movie Weekend at AMC Theatres

Chances are, you have a Pixar fan in your house. Or two. Or three. But maybe those fans have only seen some of their favorite Pixar movies on your home television. Now is your chance to let them experience some classics on the big screen.

The cost is $6 per movie, and all four movies are being shown each day, but rotating through different timeslots.

There are a number of AMC Theatres in Chicago that are participating, including AMC South Barrington 30, AMC Woodfield 20 and AMC Woodridge 18. (Here's a link to the whole list of participating theaters. Go to Page 2 for the times the movies will be shown.)

This promotion seems to be a way to hype the upcoming Pixar movie "Brave," because AMC promises that moviegoers will see an "exclusive behind-the-scenes look," at "Brave." Oh well. That seems like a decent trade-off.

I'm not sure how popular these showings will be -- it might depend on the weather. But it is possible to buy tickets in advance via the "Pixar Summer Movie Weekend" page.

And while we're at it, here's a just-for-fun question: What's the favorite Pixar movie in your house?
