Summer Movies Are Cool

Beat the heat and catch a low-cost family movie.

When it’s too hot to even hit the pool, the cool, dark movie theater is the answer. No need to shell out first-run film prices, local theaters have a selection of family favorites playing on the big screen for as little as $1. Here’s what’s showing:

Summer Movie Express

Participating Regal Cinemas locations show a fun family film each Tuesday and Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. Admission is just $1 and a portion of the proceeds goes to the Will Rogers Institute, which funds medical research for cardiopulmonary diseases.
