Cineplex Community Day Event Brings Free, Family-Friendly Movies Across British Columbia


Cineplex Entertainment announced that on Saturday, October 22, movie-lovers across British Columbia can enjoy a morning of free movies at their local Cineplex theatre – all in support of its national charitable partner, WE, a movement that brings people together and gives them the tools to change the world. Cineplex Community Day (“Community Day”) treats guests to a selection of great 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 Chief Executive Officer of Cineplex Entertainment. “We are proud to partner with WE and help to support their local program in Canada.”

This year’s exciting film line-up includes recently released popular films like 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 like popcorn, soft drinks and certain candy items priced at $2.00 each. Theatres will also be selling ME to WE Cineplex ‘Change Bracelets’ for $2.00 each, which feature a motivational statement to inspire youth to create positive change. All proceeds from select concession and bracelet sales will benefit WE.
