Dollar Movies at Regal and Edwards Cinemas?

Tired of a couple of crappy apples costing almost $3? Or a gallon of gas more than $4. 

Regal Cinemas has good news for you.

No, they aren't reducing the ridiculous prices of their popcorn and sodas. 

But at select theaters this summer movies will cost just $1.

Stop screaming. There is a catch.

To get this wonderful deal, you must be able to accurately identify--without the aid of a cheat sheet--one of the three federal branches of government. Dampen your enthusiasm? Well, they can't let everyone in for such a cheap price. 

Okay, no. 

The real catch is that the buck price applies only to G and PG movies shown on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m., which gives everyone another excuse to miss "The View."

On a side note, Regal's related press release erroneously claims that these participating Orange County theaters are in Los Angeles:
--Edwards Aliso Viejo Stadium 20;
--Edwards Anaheim Hills 14; 
--Edwards Irvine Spectrum Stadium 21;
--Edwards Metro Pointe Stadium 12;
--Regal Foothill Ranch Stadium 22;
--Regal Garden Grove Stadium 16.

Perhaps the boys at Regal, which owns Edwards, don't know that the population of OC is larger than about 20 U.S. states.
