Enjoy a free day of movies at your local Cineplex theatre all for a good cause on Saturday, October 24, 2015. Now in its 5th year, Cineplex Community Day treats guests to a selection of family-friendly films with donations and concession sales supporting Free The Children.
Free Movies at Cineplex Community Day
This year’s Community Day film line-up includes Despicable Me 2, Fast & Furious 6, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, Pitch Perfect, Hop, and Dumb and Dumber To.
Movie-lovers in attendance can enjoy a morning of free movies and select concessions like coffee, popcorn, soft drinks and select candy items will be priced at $2.00 each. Cineplex will also be selling exclusive mini-Rafiki friendship bracelets for $2.00 each, with all proceeds from donations and concession sales supporting Free The Children, its national charity partner.
Founded by Canada’s Kielburger brothers, Free the Children is also the organization behind the annual We Day events in major cities across North America – half a dozen of which have been hosted in Vancouver, and I’ve had the pleasure of attending.
Free The Children is an international charity committed to delivering a sustainable development model that empowers people to transform themselves, their families, their communities and the world.
All 22 Cineplex theatres across British Columbia will open their doors to guests in the morning of October 24th. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis only. Movies will begin at 9:00am, with all locations returning to regular programming in the afternoon.
