Cineplex Community Day event provides free, family-friendly movies
National fundraising effort raises money in support of WE charity
On Saturday, Oct. 14, movielovers and their families across Nova Scotia are invited to visit their local Cineplex theatre and enjoy a morning of free films for a good cause.
For the seventh consecutive year, Cineplex Community Day will treat guests to a selection of popular, family-friendly movies, with all proceeds from donations and select concession sales supporting the company’s national charitable partner, WE Charity, part of WE - a family of organizations that makes doing good, doable.
This year’s line-up of free films includes popular releases for movie-lovers of all ages, such as Kung Fu Panda 3, Trolls, Ice Age: Collision Course, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.
Guests can enjoy concessions like popcorn, soft drinks and select candy for just $2.50 each and, in exchange for a $2 donation, theatres will also be selling a fun variety of ME to WE Cineplex ‘Change Bracelets’ which feature motivational statements to inspire youth to create positive change.
Cineplex theatres across Nova Scotia will open their doors at 9 a.m. on the 14th, with tickets available on a first-come, firstserved basis only.
Movies will begin at 9:30 a.m., and all locations will return to regular programming in the afternoon.
