UTEP, Cinemark Partner to Benefit Area Charities

The University of Texas at El Paso has partnered with Cinemark USA to recognize four El Paso area nonprofit organizations for their outstanding work in the community with a donation, as well as a night out at the movies at El Paso’s newest theater.

From Nov. 8-9, officials, supporters and volunteers of the four organizations were treated to a free movie screening and popcorn at the new Cinemark location. The UTEP-Cinemark collaboration aims to support the organizations for their hard work that benefits the El Paso region.

“Cinemark was thrilled to partner with UTEP on the opening of the Cinemark Movie Bistro at Sunland Park Mall,” said James Meredith, Cinemark vice president of marketing and communications. “El Paso has long been a very important market for our company and we truly appreciate the opportunity to provide a donation and free entertainment for our new friends and neighbors.”

The partnership aligns with the Center for Civic Engagement’s mission of engaging the University with the community through various service-learning projects and strategic partnerships with area non-profit and business organizations.
