Regal Cinemas shows kids movies from past years for one dollar on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10AM in the summer. Two movies are offered each week, and both movies are available on both days.
$1 per person
I didn’t even have to pay for my 2-year-old, they must start charging at 3.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
This is a great way to get the “going out to the movies” experience without the crowds, overpriced tickets, and worrying if your kid is going to cause a scene or make it through the movie. Because if they don’t, you’re only out a dollar! I heard from a friend that one of the times she went there was a fairly long line for tickets, but it moved really fast. When we went the theater was practically empty.
Here is the schedule for Summer 2018:
The Iron Giant
Ice Age: Collision Course
Mr. Peabody & Sherman
Despicable Me 2
How to Train Your Dragon 2
The Lego Movie
Alvin and the Chipmunks
The Peanuts Movie
The LEGO Ninjago Movie
The Secret Life of Pets
Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel
July 31-August 1
The Lego Batman Movie
WHAT TO TAKE
Lots of treats! Concessions are still regularly priced, and you can bring your own.
We went to see Curious George on a Tuesday morning. We were a little late because swim lessons go until 10, but it worked out perfect because there was no line for tickets and all we missed were the previews, which is the way I prefer it anyway. Kyler (2) is really into Curious George right now and has the whole movie memorized, but still enjoyed it. We took lots of snacks, which I recommend.
WHAT WE LIKED
The price is great, obviously! I liked that it wasn’t crowded and it was a bunch of people like me, with really little kids. Where I wouldn’t take my noisy baby to a regularly timed and priced movie, I was totally comfortable here, and people were in and out a little bit, and it was all fine.
WHAT WE DIDN’T LIKE
Nothing not to like here! Unless you don’t like going to the movies.
WILL WE GO AGAIN
We aren’t super interested in any of the movies left for this summer, but we will definitely keep up the tradition next summer.
