After taking a hiatus for 2020, the Regal Summer Movie Express 2021 is back with $1 movies for kids, and my family can’t wait. Let’s get back to the movies. This is one of my family’s favorite things to do every summer. It’s a great way to get out of the heat for just $1, plus it’s a lot of fun to do with friends. This summer’s lineup includes tons of great movies like several of the LEGO movies, Trolls World Tour and Croods 2. The 2021 lineup includes some of our favorites and some we’ve never seen. There are 31 movies available to be played during Regal Summer Movie Express 2021, but each theater only plays two movies per week for 8-14 weeks (depending on location). This means the selection at your movie theater each week may vary from the schedule listed below. To find the full 2021 Regal Summer Movie Express schedule for your area CLICK HERE.
All Regal Summer Movie Express movies are $1 movies. You can catch them on Tuesdays and Wednesdays each week during the summer during the first movie shown at the theater. Theater start times vary by location anywhere from 10 am to 1 pm depending on the theater you visit. At most movie theaters there are two movies are shown each week and both movies are played on both days. So you can go on Tuesday or Wednesday or both to see your pick of movies.
NEW! Regal now offers presale tickets for Summer Movie Express! Check in advance with your local theater to make sure the movie you want to see doesn’t sell out.
If you have little ones, this is the perfect opportunity to take them to the theater for the first time. My oldest enjoyed her first movie theater movies during this program because, for $1, it’s no big deal if you have to leave.
Regal Summer Movie Express 2021 $1 Movie Schedule
When do the Regal Summer Movie Express movies start? Unfortunately, there isn’t a uniform start date. Theater start dates vary based on location. (Some start June 1 others start as late as June 29, my guess is that start dates are related to when kids get out of school in your area.)
