The unofficial kick off of Summer 2021 is here! 

Boise offers so many ways for families to cool down when things start to heat up. Swimming at Lucky Peak, Eagle Island or Quinn's Pond. Taking a dip in one of the public pools. Screaming as you plunge down Snake River Run at Roaring Springs. Running through one of the splash pads around the Treasure Valley.

But, if you know what else we can do this summer that was a little difficult to do in 2020? Grab a giant tub of popcorn, a soda that's the size of a bucket and bask in the cool AC of a movie theater. With the exception of mom and pop theater, Overland Park Cinemas, most theaters in the Treasure Valley were closed until August. Some even went through a second closure in October.

But this year? All of the major theaters are open again and ready to entertain guests! At the Edwards branded Regal theaters, a new year also means the return of the Regal Summer Movie Express series! They'll show $1 kids movies every Tuesday and Wednesday beginning on June 1.
