Regal Entertainment Group wants to make things a bit more animated this summer.

If you’re feeling stuck and searching for cheap things to do with your kids while they’re on summer break, head to a participating Regal theater on a Tuesday or Wednesday morning June through August to catch one of 18 awesome animated kids movies for only $1 per ticket.

The movies are a part of Regal’s Summer Movie Express promotion. Regal will donate a portion of the ticket sales to the Will Rogers Institute, which funds medical research for cardiopulmonary diseases.

Head to Regal’s website to find a participating theater near you and see the schedule. All showings begin at 10 a.m, and theaters will play two movies each week. (Both movies will play on both Tuesday and Wednesday.)

You can purchase tickets in advance or at the box office.
