(MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE) November 19, 2014 - After 15 years of transforming film into collectible movie bows for the popular Wrapped with Love program Malco Theatres is debuting a new keepsake just in time for the holidays!
The limited edition Malco Memories Photo Magnets will offer a unique opportunity to see oneself at the movies this holiday season - the ultimate "selfie" souvenir! Available for $1.00 each from Thanksgiving Day (November 27) through Christmas Day (December 25) at all Malco Theatres locations in Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Louisiana and Mississippi, 100% of the monies raised will be donated to Memphis' own St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for the continued research of childhood diseases.
This new drive coincides with Malco's Century of Cinema celebration, highlighting the company's 100th anniversary. Started in 1915 by M.A. Lightman, Sr., what began as one theatre in a rented storefront in Sheffield, Alabama, has become one of the most popular movie theatre chains in the Southern United States. Since then, Malco has continued to serve the community and give back, raising millions of dollars various charities and organizations, including the ongoing partnership with ALSAC/St Jude that has netted over $865,000 for the veritable Memphis institution.
