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 4 it’s at least $40 to just get into the theater, and that is if you are able to get the kids by 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 line up and it’s bound to be entertaining for the kids, a guaranteed way to beat the heat and friendly to the wallet. What more could you ask for?
Regal’s Summer Movie Express begins June 2 at Regal Columbia Cinema 7 and June 9 for Regal Sandhill Stadium IMAX and Regal Columbiana Grande Stadium 14. The movies begin at 10 am 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.
The movie lineup is sure to tickle the funny bone of even the youngest movie-goers.
