Georgia Theatre Company will host its 10th Annual Cinema for a Cause (formerly “Film & Food for a Cause”) event on Sunday, September 22 at all 32 of their theatre locations throughout Georgia and at three locations participating for the first time this year in Florida, South Carolina and Virginia. All proceeds from admission tickets and concession purchases will be donated to local charity groups chosen by each theatre staff in their markets.
Participating theatre(s) in the Athens, Georgia area include Beechwood Stadium Cinemas, Georgia Square Value Cinemas and the new University 16 Cinemas. Recipient charity groups for this market this year are Variety of Georgia and the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, and both groups will receive half of proceeds from the event day.
This unique event has allowed Georgia Theatre Company to donate over $637,400 to local charity groups over the past nine years, and last year’s event raised over $166,900.
Advance tickets (regular pricing for all movies) for the event will be available at participating theatre locations beginning at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, September 17 through the event day, Sunday, September 22.
