If the cost of bringing your entire family to the theatre and purchasing snacks makes you feel slightly faint, take heart – Cineplex Entertainment is inviting Canadian families for a morning of free movies on Saturday, Oct. 18.
In honour of Cineplex’s fourth-annual National Community Day, families can enjoy free movies and popcorn, soft drinks and select candy items for $2 each. All proceeds raised will benefit Free The Children, an international charity and educational partner working to empower youth as agents of change.
In Ottawa, Cineplex Theatres will open their doors at 8:30 a.m., with the following movies slated for viewing:
- Escape From Planet Earth (9 a.m.)
- Ender’s Game (9:15 a.m.)
- Walking With Dinosaurs – 3D (9:30 a.m.)
- ParaNorman – 3D (9:45 a.m.)
- Divergent (10 a.m.)
- Free Birds (10:15 a.m.)
