Cinema for a Cause
September 23, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Please support this wonderful event as we are one the benefiting charities!
Georgia Theatre Company is pleased to announce the 15th Annual Cinema for a Cause event to be held on Sunday, September 23, 2018 at their twenty-five locations throughout Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and Virginia.
Customers are encouraged to come to the movies on Sunday, September 23, when 100% of all admission tickets and concession purchases will be donated to local charity groups. “The theatre is a place where communities come together to share a common experience,” said Bo Chambliss, President of Georgia Theatre Company. “We appreciate all that our employees do to make the movie-going experience as enjoyable as possible. We are grateful to allow the managers and their staff select charities to support in the local community. It is a great way for us and for them to give back.”
Last year’s event raised $174,587 to benefit 34 local charities and to date this unique event has allowed Georgia Theatre Company to donate $1.5 million to local charity groups over the past fourteen years. “We take pride in being a part of every community where we have a theatre,” said Bill Stembler, Chairman of Georgia Theatre Company. “Giving all of our proceeds for one day is a small way for us to show appreciation for the communities that support us all of the time. Enjoy the movies!”
The participating theatre in the Gilmer County area is Mountain Cinemas. Recipient charity
groups for this market this year are Gilmer Arts, Homeward Bound Pet Rescue, and Variety of Georgia.
