SUNNYLAND, Ill -- You can enjoy a movie and help the tornado victims all at the same time.

This Saturday morning, Sunnyland Cinemas is teaming up with the Red Cross for a Relief Benefit.

At 10 am, you can enjoy a family-friendly movie, popcorn and a drink with a donation to the Red Cross.

Theater manager Tim Tuft said, the event is a time to give back, but also a time to escape from all the stresses of the situation.

"It's just something to get away from, get their minds off of this and a chance to relax and enjoy a movie," said Tuft.

The theater is located just down the street from the devastated areas.

Tuft said several of their regular customers and employees were affected.
