Inside scoop on the $1 Summer Movie Express in Bellevue, Tukwila, and Renton


This morning, my daughter and I decided to catch a movie at the Summer Movie Express program at Crossroads Cinemas in Bellevue.  For just a buck, you can see a pretty new kid’s movie (they are all rated G or PG) on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am.  We saw How to Train Your Dragon and had a great time.  In fact, at the end of the film, everyone clapped!

Since I had never been before, we got there at about 9:15 to make sure we got tickets.  No worries there;  we were the first people in the theater, which was great for my 6 year old, who spent the time dancing in the aisles.  By about 9:30, there were people scattered throughout the theater, but plenty of seats were still available.  By 9:45, it was getting full, and by the time the movie started at 10:00, the only seats available were in the front row.  You can get a sense of the crowd from the picture above of everyone leaving after the show.

The woman at the ticket booth suggested buying your tickets about 30-40 minutes ahead of time, and I would say you would probably be fine in most cases if you bought them by half an hour before.  If it was raining, more people might be there, so you might want to aim for 40 minutes before in that case.  Unless you are like me and can’t stand being late, in which case you will be there at 9:15 and be dancing in the aisles.

The shows run all summer through the month of August at three theaters on the Eastside:  Crossroads Cinemas in Bellevue, The Landing Stadium 14 Cinemas at Renton Landing, and Parkway Plaza Stadium 12 in Tukwila.
