Tobacco use in movies influences more youth in the United States to begin smoking than any other kind of tobacco promotion and is a risk factor that contributes to nearly 44% of all new youth smokers. Ticket sales to this event will fund airtime for the short films to be shown at local Regal theaters prior to all feature movies.
