If you are a family on a budget, it’s hard to pack up the kids and go to the movies. For a family of four, it’s at least $40 to just get into the theater – and that is if you are able to get the kids by the snack stand without them having a complete meltdown. If you get sucked in by the smell of the buttery popcorn and the sound of a slurping slushie, your wallet takes a hit for at least $60. It’s a significant amount of money to shell out for two hours of entertainment.
But, family summer savings is on the way! Regal theaters has their $1 summer movie lineup and it’s bound to be entertaining for the kids, a guaranteed way to beat the heat and friendly to your budget. What more could you ask for?
Regal’s Summer Movie Express begins June 11 at our local movie theaters (Columbia Cinema 7, Columbiana Grande Stadium 14, and Sandhill Stadium 16). Each week both movies play on Tuesdays and Wednesdays beginning at 10 a.m. and are rated either G or PG. Many summer camps go to the movies on these days so it is probably wise to get their early or buy your tickets ahead of time because seating is first come, first served.
The movie lineup is sure to tickle the funny bone of even the youngest movie-goers:
