JOPLIN, MO.--- Laferla Ortho is hosting a dollar movie day twice a week on Tuesday and Wednesday. The movies are shown at the Regal Northstar Theater in Joplin. Movies like "Despicable Me 2" and "The Lego Movie" will be shown. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Will Rogers Institute, which helps sick children. Organizers say it's a nice option for kids during the summer.
"I think this is a wonderful option, we've seen a lot of families showing up. There are a lot of extended families because grandma comes with the kids because she's watching them anyway this summer. So we really think this is a great program," said Bre Laferla, Laferla Ortho.
The program will go on until the end of July.
