Cheap Movies at Regal Summer Movie Express
Every summer our local Regal Theater will show a series of movies for just $1 on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. This is a fantastic way to keep the kids entertained when it’s too hot to be outside. This is also a great chance for kiddos to practice their theater manners before you spend a ton of money on a movie. This year the movies will not be playing at 10AM–instead they will play when the first movie of the day plays–around noon, but check the schedule to be sure. A portion of the ticket proceeds go to the Will Rogers Institute. As a special surprise they seem to have extended the season.
If you’re not sure which theaters around here are Regal Theaters, there’s only one in our area the Regal Covington Theater located on Highway 21.
