Cineplex Odeon Meadowtown Cinemas in Pitt Meadows will offer free movies to families on Saturday, Oct. 22, in support of WE, its national charitable partner.
WE is a movement that brings people together and gives them the tools to change the world.
“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 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 each.
Theatres will also be selling ME to WE Cineplex ‘Change Bracelets’ for $2, and which feature a motivational statement to inspire youth to create positive change.
All proceeds from select concession and bracelet sales will benefit WE.
Seating will be limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis only. Doors will open at 8:30 a.m., while movies will begin between 9 and 10 a.m.
