Have you heard of Regal Cinemas' summer movie program for the community- the Free Family Film Festival? It's great! Every Tuesday and Wednesday morning for eight weeks in the summer, a Regal Cinema theater near you has a family movie (nothing brand new, all movies listed we've already seen and own the DVD) that is free for everyone on a first come, first serve basis.
Kids don't care if it's a new release or it's Toy Story; they just like the movie theater experience- and parents will be happy, because it's a free event. And my favorite part of going to the movies- the air conditioned theater. (for those of you who aren't familiar with Seattle- not many people own an air conditioner in their house, so we go out to places like the mall or movie theater, who do have AC; during the ten days it's really hot here)
