Beat the heat and take the kiddos to the movies this summer, without breaking the bank! The 2022 Regal Summer Movie Express is a real deal, at just $2 for admission to select family-friendly films.
Yes, this is a price increase — it’s gone up from the one buck price tag we all enjoyed for many years.
There are actually four major changes this year:
• The price has gone up.
• The program is longer, running 16 weeks (instead of the usual 10).
• Movie start times vary (it used to always be 10 a.m.) We clicked around and found most showtimes are now either 11 a.m. or 12:30 p.m.
• You can now buy tickets in advance, both online and at the box office. (In the past, they were only available on the day of the show, so you had to get there early to ensure you got seats. We urge you to take advantage of the advance purchase option — there don’t seem to be any extra fees tacked on.)
Here’s how it works:
Each week, two movies are offered at the $2 price, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Both movies run both days, so you have a choice. You could also see both films over two days.
The films are always rated G or PG.
See the list of movies below.
