CARLSBAD— Regal Entertainment Group is opening a luxury theatre at Westfield Plaza Camino Real Dec. 11 and celebrating with $3 movies.
From Dec. 7 to Dec. 9, different themed movies will be shown to benefit charities throughout San Diego, including Toys for Tots, the San Diego Food Bank, and the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA.
All movies, small drinks and popcorn will be $3, with proceeds benefitting the charities.
Some of the movies to be shown include, “Polar Express 3D,” “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “Christmas Vacation,” “Julie and Julia,” “Despicable Me 2 3D” and “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
The luxury movie theatre will feature Regal King Size Recliners, which are electrically controlled and 12 screens.
“Regal Carlsbad 12 is truly a state-of-the-art entertainment destination with a pristine presentation and featuring the Regal luxury experience with oversize recliners,” said Rachel Lueras, marketing manager for Regal Entertainment Group. “We are proud to be a part of the exciting new plan for an open-air shopping center in Carlsbad and we invite moviegoers to stretch out, relax and recline while watching a movie at this new luxury theatre.”
The grand opening of the movie theatre is Dec. 11. Tickets range from $9.50 to $13.00.
The upgrade to the theater is part of a larger $300 million overhaul to the Westfield Plaza Camino Real mall, which is currently under construction.
The mall, which is south of state Route 78, was built 45 years ago. As part of the overhaul, it will become an outdoor mall. The 40,000 square foot 24-Hour Fitness is already open.
Westfield has bought out the current tenants to make way for major improvements, which should be done by 2017.
