Movies on the cheap: Once again this summer, Regal Cinemas has a great way to keep kids entertained on the cheap, with $1 movie admission two mornings a week all summer. Two films are shown each day, and you can see both for the same $1 admission.
The Regal Summer Movie Express $1 tickets are for shows Tuesday and Wednesday only, for the 10AM screening only, for nine weeks.
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.
This year, Regal Summer Movie Express films include Kung Fu Panda 3, Trolls, Happy Feet 2 and The Lego Batman Movie.
The start dates vary by state and city, starting as soon as May 30th in some locations.
In New York City, the $1 movies begin on Tuesday, July 4th, after NYC public schools close for the school year at the end of June.
