|Home: BigScreen Journal - Lynchburg, VA: Regal Announces Grand Opening for River Ridge Stadium 14 on October 9, 2009 with Preview Events to Benefit Charity|
Details for the Grand Opening of the new Regal Cinemas River Ridge Stadium 14 in Lynchburg, Virginia have been announced by Regal Entertainment Group in a press release yesterday.
The 14-screen theater will open officially to the public on Friday, October 9, 2009, but they will be hosting preview events for three days earlier that week to benefit local charities. These events generate publicity for the theater and give the employees a chance to iron out the kinks in the operation before opening day.
"River Ridge Stadium 14 will be a state-of-the art entertainment destination for Lynchburg-area moviegoers. River Ridge Mall is certainly a popular location and the new Regal Cinemas will be a terrific addition to the regional shopping center," stated Dick Westerling, Regal Entertainment Group Senior Vice President of Marketing and Advertising. "We are excited to offer patrons their first opportunity to view the new theatre during our preview events featuring $1 movies, popcorn and soft drinks with all proceeds benefitting local charities."
I haven't been able to find confirmation, but this theater appears to be replacing the Carmike River Ridge 4, which is located in the same section of the mall as this new Regal location.
See the full press release below for all the details surrounding the theater and the preview events.
