Movie theater raises money for charity

It looks like an effort to tie grand opening festivities for a new movie theater in Santa Maria to fundraising efforts is a blockbuster success. The Recreation and Parks Department estimates a $2-promotion at the Santa Maria Town Center Mall raised about $10,000 on Sunday. Popcorn, soda, and movie tickets are two only bucks a piece through Tuesday. The theater will be playing movies like "Fast and Furious 6," "Star Trek Into Darkness", "Monsters University," and "World War Z". "We had a great reaction from the community," said Rachel Lueras of Regal Entertainment Group. "Everyone was really excited to come out and get a first glimpse of the theater." On Monday night, the money raised will go toward the Santa Maria Youth and Family Services. Tuesday night's fundraiser benefits Northern Santa Barbara County's United Way.
