School’s out for summer! While the kids are high fiving each other and are excited for a few months without homework, parents are getting ready to put on another hat. 

On top of all of your normal day to day responsibilities you have at home and at the office, you’ve now taken on the role of “Director of Summer Fun and Games.” Do a good job and your kids will ace that “What I Did This Summer” assignment when class starts again this fall. Do a “meh” job and you’ll hear “MOM! I’M BORED! THERE’S NOTHING TO DO” so many times, you’ll start to question your sanity.

While some discount movie programs have slowly increased their ticket price to keep up with rising costs, Regal actually dropped theirs. Summer Movie Express screenings were $2 in 2023. 

Don’t live in Boise or Nampa? Meridian’s Majestic Cinema, owned by Cinemark, has a similar program. Their movies are $1.75 and you can see the schedule here.
