Taking the family to a movie these days can break the bank. Between tickets, popcorn and drinks, it can cost a chunk of change.
Now you have a chance to take the kids to see a movie on the big screen without shelling out too much cash. Bowtie Cinemas has a Free Kids Summer Film Series at the Marquis 16 theater in Trumbull.
Regal Stratford Stadium 14 at 411 Barnum Avenue Cutoff in Stratford is one of the Regal Entertainment Group theaters hosting Summer Movie Express.
