Opry Mills moviegoers raise $56K-plus for charity


Thousands of moviegoers raised more than $56,000 for three local charities at the newly opened Regal Cinemas at the flood-damaged Opry Mills Mall.

The movie theater reopened on Monday and offered three days of $2 screenings and $2 popcorn and drinks.

Regal will make a $15,500 donation to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, a $17,000 donation to the Nashville Film Festival and a $24,000 donation to Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee.

New amenities at the revamped theater include updated seating and an expanded menu offering pizza, wings, burgers and frozen yogurt, among other items.

The theater's grand opening event coincides with the opening of "Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Part I" and "Happy Feet 2."

The new theater has 21 auditoriums, including the IMAX.

Since opening, the movie theater has hosted more than 15,000 guests.

By the end of the month, three anchor stores will join the theater and Bass Pro Shops, which opened just five months after the historic flood of May 2010.
