Movies on the cheap: Once again this year, Regal Entertainment Group has scheduled nine weeks of family-friendly movies at select Regal and UA theaters for just $1 per person, so you can keep the kids entertained on the cheap.
This year’s schedule includes Curious George, The LEGO Movie and Despicable Me.
During its Summer Movie Express, selected G- or PG-rated movies show at 10 a.m. (at most locations) every Tuesday and Wednesday.
Also, a portion of the proceeds benefit the Will Rogers Institute, one of the nation’s leading groups researching cures for health issues affecting children.
So it’s a win-win – a cheap day at the movies for your kids, and funding for a top program to help end childhood illnesses.
In the NYC area, the $1 Summer Movie Express program starts June 26 at Regal Nanuet Statium 12, and July 3 at UA Sheepshead Bay Stadium 14 and UA Staten Island Stadium 16.
Unfortunately, there is no participating Regal or UA theater in Manhattan.

Note that tickets are available only at the theater box office on the day of the show. You can’t book them online in advance.
