Select childrens movies at Regal Cinema in the Landing will be just $1 for Boys & Girls Club members.

As part of Regal’s Summer Movie Express, members get $1 admission to certain G or PG rated movies that include previous summer blockbusters like “How to Train your Dragon 2,” “The Lego Batman Movie” and “Despicable Me.”

The movies will run at 10 a.m., Tuesdays and Wednesdays, until Aug. 21.

“Regal is proud to partner with local Boys & Girls Clubs through these grants to cover their costs such as transportation and snacks,” Ken Thewes, Chief Marketing Officer for Regal, stated in a press release from Boys & Girls Club of King County. “Regal believes that this summertime series for kids helps to instill a love of movie going and inspires the imagination of the next generation.”

Boys & Girls Club King County will partner with Regal to cover the cost of transportation and snacks for club members. The club received one of 80 grants awarded by Regal this summer to help kids experience summer fun, and learn a little.

The club members attending will have the options of creating a movie-themed book club, adapting a screen play based on a movie or visiting local landmarks after watching a movie.

“Our club is extremely active during the summer season, so we’re always grateful for opportunities that combine fun with engaging learning activities that help our young people stimulate their minds during the summer break,” Laurie Black, Boys & Girls Clubs of King County, stated in a press release.
