Regal Cinemas at Crocker Park will be closed to the public from 3 p.m. Wednesday to 11 a.m. Thursday.

Automotive business mogul Bernie Moreno reserved all 16 of the cinema’s auditoriums in honor of the 10th anniversary of the opening of Mercedes-Benz of North Olmsted.

Employees and up to three guests each will be treated to an early screening of Jurassic World with complimentary popcorn and soda.

The invitation reads, “It’s been a wonderful 10 years since Mercedes-Benz of North Olmsted and Bernie Moreno Companies began in Northeast Ohio, so it’s time for a celebration…We wanted to do something special and exciting, and what’s more so than experiencing on of cinema’s gigantic franchises before anyone else?”

To reserve the theatre for an exclusive showing of a first-run film, a full buy-out at the adult admission rate, $11.01, is required.

A Regal corporate employee estimated the cost of buying out Crocker Park’s 2,430-seat cinema to be $26,754.30.
