On Saturday, October 22, 2016 Cineplex movie theatres will be hosting a community day with free movies and $ 2 popcorn, drinks and candy – with all proceeds going to WE Charity (formerly known as Free the Children).
The free movies will be shown in locations around the city including Downtown Vancouver, Richmond, and North Vancouver. The movies being shown include The Jungle Book, Inside Out, The Finest Hours, The Good Dinosaur, and Zootopia.
Although the movies are free, you will still need to get a ticket for each movie. Tickets will become available on a first come, first serve basis at participating Cineplex locations on the morning of October 22nd.
It’s the perfect morning activity for a rainy and gloomy Vancouver morning! Zootopia, Inside Out, The Jungle Book and The Good Dinosaur are all animated family classics. The Finest Hours offers a more action-packed adventure about a daring rescue attempt on the stormy seas of Cape Cod.
Each movie will be screened at the same times in six different theatres across the Vancouver area:
- The Good Dinosaur – 9:00am
In a world where dinosaurs and humans live side-by-side, an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend.
- Inside Out – 9:15am
