The new 14-screen Regal Cinemas L.A. Live opened last Tuesday evening.

Downtown's new Regal Cinemas is offering another free movie night on Thursday, this time targeted at USC students. The event is part of the venue's week-long transition away from wall-to-wall Michael Jackson screenings and toward normal operation.

The lineup is the same as Monday's free night for Downtowners: Funny People (7:00), 500 Days of Summer (7:10), District 9 (7:20), Star Trek (7:30), Up (7:40), G.I. Joe (7:50), The Proposal (8:00).

Soda and popcorn will again be $1, with the proceeds this time benefiting City of Hope.

Tickets are supposed to be available from the Regal box office starting at 5pm on Thursday, though that policy wasn't particularly enforced on Monday.

Regular programming inside the cineplex will begin on Friday evening.

Thursday night also marks the kickoff for a new shuttle that will run between USC and L.A. Live. The line, to be operated by USC's transportation department and funded by AEG, will run between The Lab and 901 Bar at USC and the Regal. It will pick up every half hour between 6pm and 2am on Friday, 2pm to 2am on Saturdays and 4pm to 10pm on Sundays.
