Now that the kids are on holiday break, watching a movie is a great way to get them to wind down after a day out. My family’s entertainment budget is very small,  so for some frugal family fun, I try to track down all of the free movies. My kids have no idea that there is no money in the budget for family fun. 
I use several different sources to get free movies:
My Coke Rewards: 
My Coke rewards is having a 50 percent off sale on some of their rewards included in their holiday gift guide, and these include the Blockbuster rewards. My boys love the family movie night which includes 2 free blockbuster rentals, 2 cokes and a pop corn tub. Print these now, as they might disappear very soon.
My kids are great at finding my coke rewards points, when we are out and about. I also find a lot of my coke rewards codes, when I am walking to and from school with the kids.
50% Off Holiday Gift Guide at My Coke Rewards.
Blockbuster Family Movie Night: 125 points
Rent One Blockbuster Movie, Get One Free 25 points.
Rent One Blockbuster Game, Get One Free 45 points.
Rent One Blockbuster Movie Free 50 points
Rent One Blockbuster Game Free

Erewards: I am a member of E-rewards, one of the best survey sites out there. One of the rewards is 1 free blockbuster movie every month. E-rewards is closed for new members, unless you get an invitation from a participating companies. I have received invitations from being signed up for Blockbuster, Borders and Pizza Hut newsletters. So if you receive an E-rewards invitation, make sure to jump on it. I also get $15 in Borders Bucks each year from E-rewards, and they pay $2-$6 per survey. (Dec 2011 update: You now get 10 free Blockbuster Express Kiosk for $10 Erewards points).
Blockbuster: Keep your eye out for the Blockbuster Express coupons. Try the code thanku to get a FREE rental! Thea code for a FREE movie rental is valid 12/23 and 12/24.
Redbox: Keep your eye out for Redbox rental codes.
Our local library: Every Friday I usually take out 10 movies from our local library. 10 is the limit, and from experience I have learned that several of them do not work due to scratches. We can usually take out the movies for 5 days, but the first thing I do, when I get home is renew the movies, just in case I do not make it back in time. Our library charges $1 per day per movie….so I am very careful with this.
