SRHS "shoe boxing" items for veterans
This holiday season, Singing River Health Systems wants the community’s help spreading Christmas cheer to those in need. Their shoebox donation drive is aimed at homeless veterans in the area as well as those in local nursing homes. The items needed are health and comfort items like food, clothing, and toiletries, but they’ll also accept books, games, and anything that could be useful to those veterans that are weathering the winter conditions without shelter. It is recommended that each shoe box that is donated should have a total value of about $20. Singing River Health System Foundation Executive Director Laura Sessum said “This Christmas season, when we were looking at which way we’re going to try to help our community, we thought we would try to target our veterans and we wanted to help veterans that are local and so this is how the idea came about from Operation Shoebox which is more of an international type of drive usually, but we wanted to do it locally.” Boxes can be dropped off at either Singing River Hospital location by December 20th.

New movie theater opening at Edgewater Mall
A new state of the art movie theater is coming to Edgewater Mall in Biloxi. Officials say it will open next year. Biloxi hasn’t had a cinema of this kind since before Hurricane Katrina. Biloxi is known for its casino, beaches, resorts, and restaurants, but for years, the city’s entertainment line-up has been missing something. A brand new movie theater is planned to go up at Edgewater Mall and be completed by next November. Residents and Visitors are already excited. Louisiana Resident Marie DeYoung said, “I think it’s fantastic. I don’t go to casinos and I don’t even go for shows, but more of that kind of entertainment makes this an ideal place to visit for a family.” Premiere Cinemas will be built in the building that used to be Sears at the Edgewater Mall. The state of the art movie theater will have eight wall to wall digital screens and luxury reclining seats. Biloxi Resident Cameron Smith said, “I don’t go to the movies much just because of the drive. I feel like having one closer by would make me a lot more, I guess, up for going to the movie theater.” The cinema’s construction design includes plans to turn the pavement around where the new movie theater will stand into 20,000 square feet of landscaped green space. The addition will come with improvements to the food court and the mall’s entrances. All set to take place near the new restaurant called Barefoot Billy’s Grill and Bar which is scheduled to open early December. Edgewater Mall General Manager Terry Powell said, “It creates a great entertainment environment for the mall. This and some other things we’re anticipating for the future. In today’s retail environment you have to look outside the box.” When construction wraps up, the building will be filled with recliner seats. Get your popcorn ready, the grand opening is set for November 2018. “It’s one more feature for those who live locally and those who are visiting for a short little hop to entertain,” said DeYoung.
