Regal Thornton Place Stadium 14 & IMAX opens this week

So, it’s Monday and I’ve realized to my dismay that I’m working every night this week and won’t be able to get to the special $2 preview nights at the new Thornton Place multiplex this week. I’m excited about this theater, because it’s kind of in my neighborhood and because I like the way they’re launching it: Tonight through Wednesday, they’re showing a variety of second-run movies for $2 each, with proceeds to benefit charities (Monday: Newspapers in Education, Tuesday: Susan G. Komen Foundation Race for the Cure, Wednesday: Communities in Schools). Popcorn and soft drinks are also $2 for these special evenings. I’ve seen most of the movies they’re screening; some aren’t worth $2 (“Bride Wars,” “Seven Pounds,” “Paul Blart Mall Cop”), but some are a great deal — “The Dark Knight” in IMAX for $2, anyone? The theater will open for regular business Friday, with free popcorn and soft drinks (one each with paid admission) through May 31. Looking forward to hearing your reports; if anyone goes to this week, let us know!
