Theater opening to benefit food bank
June 25, 2013
As a part of its grand opening, the Regal Issaquah Highlands 12 theater will hold a preview event to benefit local charities.
On June 29, all movies, popcorn and soft drinks will be $2 each with all proceeds going to benefit the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank. The theater will show “Eat, Pray, Love,” “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” and “Julie & Julia” under the theme “Regal’s Recipe for Hope.”
On June 30, proceeds will benefit the charity Newspapers in Education and the theme will be “Read It and See It at Regal,” and the theater will show “The Hunger Games” and “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax.”
“Regal Superheroes For A Cause” will be the theme July 1, which will benefit ArtsFund of Seattle. Films shown will be “The Incredible Hulk,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and “The Amazing Spiderman.”
Issaquah Food Bank Executive Director Cori Walters said that the theater’s donations would go a long way to help the city’s resource.
“We’re so excited about the event,” she said. “This will give some security for providing food in the summer months.”
Walters, who only recently heard about Regal’s desire to donate, said the opening event could assist in expanding the food bank’s future.
“We are looking at growth,” she said. “So, we hope to set aside some money for capital projects.”
The new theater is at 940 N.E. Park Drive.
