Children’s Hospital movie theater to become a reality

LOMA LINDA, CA — There is a new initiative to help build an in-hospital movie theater for young patients that need constant medical attention. The hospital has joined forces with Stater Bros' supermarkets and Proctor & Gamble to raise funds.

Stater Bros. Markets has teamed with Procter & Gamble to raise $100,000 for Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital in Loma Linda, California. The money, which was raised through in-store promotions held at all 162 Stater Bros. Supermarkets, will be used to create a unique movie theater for the young patients at the hospital.

At the check presentation ceremony, the future plans for the exciting Stater Bros. Movie Theater will be discussed. This theater will provide a place where young patients can leave the reality of fighting their illness far behind. The theater will also help the hospital attract more first-run screenings of movies, such as “Charlotte’s Web.” Going to public movie theaters is a pleasure many patients cannot enjoy due to the risk of infection.
