Movie lovers across B.C. can enjoy a morning of free movies at their local Cineplex theatre, including Vernon’s Galaxy Cinemas, Saturday, Oct. 22.
The annual Community Day event is in support of Cineplex’s national charitable partner WE, a movement that brings people together and gives them the tools to change the world.
Community Day treats guests to a selection of family-friendly movies, with all proceeds from donations and select concession sales supporting WE.
“As one of Canada’s largest employers of young people, we are inspired by youth who take a starring role in making a difference in the world around them,” said Ellis Jacob, president and CEO of Cineplex Entertainment. “We are proud to partner with WE and help to support their local program in Canada.”
This year’s film lineup includes recently released popular films such as The Good Dinosaur, Inside Out, Zootopia, The Finest Hours and The Jungle Book.
Movie-lovers in attendance can enjoy a morning of free movies and select concessions such as popcorn, soft drinks and certain candy items priced at $2 each.
Theatres will also be selling ME to WE Cineplex “Change Bracelets” for $2 each, which feature a motivational statement to inspire youth to create positive change. All proceeds from select concession and bracelet sales will benefit WE.
Doors to theatres open at 8:30 a.m., with movies beginning between 9 and 10 a.m. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis only.
