Regal Cinemas' movie theaters across Tampa Bay will offer $1 morning movies this summer as part of their annual Summer Movie Express program.

Theaters will screen kid-friendly movies at 10 a.m. every Tuesday and Wednesday — with a new movie each time. Some of the films scheduled to be shown include How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, Smallfoot and Despicable Me 3.

A full list of the movies that will be shown can be found here.

Regal says that a portion of the proceeds will go to the Will Rogers Institute, which helps fund the research of cardiopulmonary diseases.

The deal will begin on June 4 at Regal's three Tampa Bay locations in Citrus Park, Pinellas Park and at Largo Mall.

"This summer program is the perfect way for families to spend quality time together while enjoying a big screen experience," Ken Thewes, Regal's chief marketing officer, said in a release.
