AMHERST – Cineplex Entertainment is bringing its community day to its Amherst theatre.
On Saturday, Oct. 24 families and movie-lovers across the province can join in a morning of free movies at their local Cineplex theatre – all for a good cause. Now in its fifth year, Cineplex’s Community Day treats guests to a selection of great family-friendly movies with all proceeds from donations and concession sales supporting Free The Children, its national charity partner.
“Last year the 125,000 Canadians that came to our theatres on Community Day helped us to raise over $530,000 in one morning and I hope that this year we’ll raise even more,” said Ellis Jacob, president and CEO of Cineplex Entertainment. “We know that great movies can inspire change so we invite Canadians to join us in supporting Free The Children to empower youth across our country and around the globe.”
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 each. Cineplex will also be selling exclusive mini-Rafiki friendship bracelets for $2 each, with all proceeds from donations and concession sales supporting Free The Children, its national charity partner.
Movies begin at 9 a.m. at the 11 participating theatres.
