BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF SOUTHEAST LOUISIANA ENJOYED THE MOVIES AT REGAL CINEMAS
As part of Regal’s Summer Movie Express, Regal treated the Boys & Girls
Clubs of Southeast Louisiana’s youth to blockbuster hits while also engaging their brains. Through a partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Regal provided the Club with a grant to help cover expenses like transportation and snacks for Club members.
All young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer, according to the National Summer Learning Association. Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Louisiana received one of 80 grants awarded this summer by Regal Entertainment Group to help local kids experience summer fun with a learning purpose.
As part of the initiative, the Regal Grand Esplanade in Kenner and the Regal Covington Stadium 14 in Covington offered Club members $1 admission to a predetermined G or PG rated movies on Tuesday or Wednesday mornings this past July. Club teens also took a few trips to the movies in September.
