2019 Regal Summer Movie Express
According to the site: “Admission to the Summer Movie Express is only $1. Tickets available for purchase at the box office and all movies in most locations start at 10:00 am. Check with your theatre for exact showtimes. Each week both movies play on both days. A portion of the proceeds goes to the Will Rogers Institute.”
Tips for Enjoying Summer Movie Express
- Arrive Early: Seats do fill up quickly so best to arrive 20-30 minutes ahead of showtime.
- Anticipate Some Noise: You’re there with kids. A ton of them. Just remember that you only paid $1 for an hour+ of air conditioning. Find your center. You’ll be ok.
- Pack Snacks: While the movie itself is $1/person, the popcorn and candy is not….So buy ahead of time and discreetly do your thang.
- Pack a Lunch: By the time the movie’s over, it will be time for lunch. Pack a lunch to eat by the University Town Center Courtyard or head to one of the local eateries for some lunch. (There’s a Safeway nearby, Pollo Campero, Bonchon, Beclaws, Carolina Kitchen & Grill, Marco & Polo Restaurant, Sushinado & Teriyaki and Old Dominion Brewhouse.)
- Plan a trip to the Library: The (temporary) Hyattville Library is located directly across from the movie theatre. Why not stop by and take out some books for summer reading?!
