Regal Entertainment Group’s new Great Northern Mall Stadium 10 & RPX in North Olmsted is set to open next week just in time for the busy holiday film release schedule. On Sunday, it hosts an invite-only media preview and then has special screenings that will be open to the public during the early part of the week. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, the theater will feature $2 movies, popcorn and soft drinks — the proceeds will benefit local charities. Monday, the theater will show Miracle on 34th Street, It’s a Wonderful Life and Wizard of OZ 3-D. Tuesday, it will screen Croods, Planes 3-D and Smurfs. And Wednesday’s line-up includes Iron Man 3, Kickass 2 and Wolverine 3-D. For Thursday’s official grand opening, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaugh is on the docket. As a bonus, anyone with a Regal Crown Club card will receive free popcorn and soft drinks with each paid admission from Thursday, Dec. 12 through Thursday, Dec. 19.
