An open letter from Megan Sullivan of Regal Cinemas:
Regal Cinemas announced details of Regal's 2010 Free Family Film Festival. During this 9-week festival, 328 Regal Cinemas, United Artists and Edwards Theatres will offer selected G
or PG rated movies for free on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 10am.
Participating theatres offer free film titles such as Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Monsters vs Aliens and Tale of Despereaux. Check local theatre listings for film selection at specific Regal Cinemas, Edwards and United Artists
Theatres. Regal's Free Family Film Festival has been an annual summer
event since 1991.
The Free Family Film Festival also allows Regal the opportunity to sponsor the Boys & Girls Clubs of America "Mornings at the Movies" program. The Regal Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity established by Regal Entertainment Group, provides monetary grants to local Boys & Girls Clubs for transportation to bring their kids to theatres to enjoy the free movies.
"Now in our twentieth year, Regal's Free Family Film Festival has always provided fun, family entertainment at no cost to our moviegoers across the country. A trip to the movies is the perfect activity for families to enjoy throughout the summer months," stated Dick Westerling, Regal Entertainment Group Senior Vice President of Marketing and Advertising.
"We are certainly proud of our partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The Mornings at the Movies program provides us the opportunity to support these kids through grants for transportation to attend the Regal Free Family Film Festival."
