Discounted Movies at Des Moines Movie Theaters

Where can you find discounted movies at Des Moines movie theaters? Our family loves to attend movies at the theaters.

I have broken down the best times and days to see a movie at a theater. Also, some of our favorite kid and family perks at each movie theater in the Des Moines area.
