Taking the family to the movies can be expensive, especially with a few kids in tow.

This summer, Regal Entertainment Group is kicking off its Summer Movie Express with $1 admission to see a selection of family-friendly films on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m. Each week two movies will play on both days. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Will Rogers Institute.

The two Long Island theaters participating include Regal Deer Park Stadium 16 IMAX & RPX in Deer Park and UA Hampton Bays 5 in Hampton Bays. Both theaters will begin the Summer Movie Express on June 27 and run for nine weeks.
