Regular attendees at the Cedar Lee will no doubt recognize the face, if not the name, of Arjeye Lacey. He was a Cleveland Cinemas employee who worked the concession stand for nearly 20 years and was known for his warmth and passion for movies.

On Jan. 19, the 36-year-old Lacey passed away, and Cleveland Cinemas is grieving the sudden, tragic loss.



“Arjeye will be missed by his co-workers and customers alike,” said Jon Forman, President of Cleveland Cinemas, in a statement provided to the media. “His love of movies and dedication to his job made him a shining presence at the theatre.”

The Cedar Lee will host a special screening of Moonrise Kingdom, one of Lacey's favorite films, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. to help the family with funeral expenses. 100 percent of the evening's proceeds will go to Lacey's family.



Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the Cedar Lee box office or online.
