Walmart and P&G have partnered to help moms and families better connect with each other.
Family Movie Night provides meaningful entertainment for the entire family.

Launched in April 2010, the P&G and Walmart Family Movie Night initiative aims to produce more quality entertainment options families can enjoy together. The made-for-TV movies have been welcomed into more than 20 million homes across America since “Secrets of the Mountain” first aired on April 16, 2010. Other movies in the franchise include “The Jensen Project,” “A Walk in My Shoes,” “Change of Plans,” “Truth Be Told,” “Field of Vision,” and “Who Is Simon Miller?,” among others.

During Family Movie Night, you can be confident that the programming on your screens will be fun and action-packed, without the worry of having to dive for the remote to change the channel during every commercial pod for fear of inappropriate advertising.

Today, it’s more costly than ever for families to enjoy a night out at the movies. Parents are looking for economical ways to spend quality time with their children. The average non-matinee ticket price is approximately $10 and after adding in concessions like popcorn, soda and candy, the cost rises to approximately $20, or $80 total for a family of four. Hosting a family movie night at home provides families with a great and economical way to get together for an engaging family film.

By providing this block of time, Walmart and P&G are striving to reconnect families across the country that are bombarded by busy schedules and the lack of programming that’s appealing to everyone.

Tune in and see what the buzz is about!
