A quick reminder that you can catch 1.00 flicks with the kids for just a couple more weeks. So far, readers have said the crowds have been small! I’d love to hear your reports, too, naturally!
Not familiar with these great programs? Theaters run them to bring families in, and it’s a great way to entertain the kids. Movies are typically older ones, but you still get the big screen experience!
First up, the Summer Movie Express from Regal. There are Regal Cinemas through out the South Sound. Shows are at 10AM on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, They began June 18th in Lacey and June 25th in the rest of the South Sound, so we’re on week 8 for most of you, week 9 (last chance territory) for Lacey. There are also a few remaining free, outdoor movies around the South Sound this summer. I’ll do a round up of those for you tomorrow, and you’ll also find them in your weekend lists.
Here’s the line up
|1||The Three Stooges||PG||10am|
|1||Ice Age: Continental Drift||PG||10am|
|2||Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days||PG||10am|
|3||Mr. Poppers’ Penguins||PG||10am|
|3||Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked||G||10am|
|6||Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax||PG||10am|
|7||Journey 2: The Mysterious Island||PG||10am|
|8||Happy Feet Too||PG||10am|
There is also a summer movie program at Cinemark. In the South Sound, there are Cinemark locations in Federal Way and Olympia. These movies are also 1.00 a piece, or you can buy tickets to 10 in advance for 5.00.
Here’s that schedule
There will also be free, outdoor movies at parks all over the South Sound, and I’ll include all those in my weekend guides and calendar. Can’t wait? You can see bargain movies year round at the Starplex in Federal Way, and they usually have at least two kid friendly titles. Another option is the Blue Mouse in Tacoma, where tickets are 3.00 on Mondays and 5.00 the rest of the week. They only sometimes have family friendly options, but I do see Oz, the Great and Powerful, right now. The Grand in Tacoma also has a free movie once a month thanks to Click! The next one is June 15th, and it’s The Lorax.
