Regal Theater Soft Open Week Benefits Area Charities

Posted: Updated:

The new Regal theater at Albemarle County's Shops at Stonefield is buzzing with movie goers Monday night.

Regal kicked off its grand opening celebration Monday. Several screenings sold out as fans flooded to the cinemas to check out the stadium seating, 3-D screens and IMAX theater.

Movie goer Tessa Sansovich said, "I feel like they're really at the very beginning giving back to the community, so I think it's just great all the way around."

The soft open features movie tickets, popcorn and soft drinks for just $2 and it all goes to charity.

Monday's proceeds go to the Virginia Film Festival. On Tuesday, NBC29 is sponsoring the deal to benefit the "Got Your 6" military support. And Thursday's event helps the University of Virginia's Madison House.

The official opening of the theater is this Friday.
