Climb aboard the Summer Movie Express at over 340 locations
Regal Entertainment Group (NYSE: RGC), a leading motion picture exhibitor owning and operating the largest theatre circuit in the United States, today announces that the Summer Movie Express is back for its 24th year. The launch of this summer’s program brings family movies for only a dollar to more than 340 Regal Entertainment Group theatres across the country.
My son and his friend took advantage of this a few times last year. It’s a great way to spend a rainy summer day! Or a really HOT summer day!
“The Summer Movie Express is back in a big way for 2015 with some of the best family oriented films of the past three years,” said Ken Thewes, chief marketing officer at Regal Entertainment Group.
“With the wide variety of choices from animated to live-action films, it’s great to see all the kids and parents enjoy this summertime tradition at their local Regal theatre.”
