Dozens of people headed to the big screen bright and early Saturday morning for a good cause.

Davis theaters and the Salvation Army teamed up for the 70th annual event.

Customers donated two cans of food and in exchange, got popcorn, a coke, and picked from four movies to watch on the silver screen.

Representatives with the Salvation Army say it's a win-win situation for everyone.

“The community, they love to help each other out and so not only do they love to go see movies but they know that they are doing this for a good reason and so even more people will come out, you'll see more adults come out. they don't care that it's a kids movie but they care about helping their fellow person here in the wiregrass,” said Jonathan Howell with the Salvation Army.

Organizers say the event was a success.

They collected around 2,500 cans of food.
