It’s almost time for cheap summer movies for the kids! I’ll remind you about these, but here’s the rundown if you want to plan on some now.
Not familiar with these great programs? Theaters run them to bring families in, and it’s a great way to entertain the kids. If it’s a particularly hot day, it’s also a great way to beat the heat. Or, heck, take a nap while your kids zone out.
Movie choices are often second run films, but you still get the big screen experience. And, if your kids are anything like mine, seeing a movie they love over and over again is one of their favorite things to do.
The Summer Movie Express from Regal offers movies for only $1 all summer long on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10:00am beginning on June 28. Each week both movies will play on both days. A portion of ticket sales will benefit the Will Rogers Institute. Here’s the schedule:

In years past, Cinemark has also hosted a Summer Movie Clubhouse. But, it appears that this summer you will have to drive all the way out to Bellevue to get in on that action.
There will also be free, outdoor movies at parks all over the South Sound this summer. You can be sure to find those in our South Sound Weekend Guide and our Summer Fun Guide coming soon!
You can also find Movies on the Cheap in the South Sound year round:
