Free movies for a good cause

Residents of the North Coast will be able to enjoy free movies on Saturday morning beginning at 9 a.m.

Residents of the North Coast will be able to enjoy free movies on Saturday morning beginning at 9 a.m. as Cineplex hosts its fifth annual Community Day.

Movies to be shown in theatres across the country include Despicable Me 2, Fast & Furious 6, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, Pitch Perfect, Hop and Dumb and Dumber To.

As well as free movies, many of the items at the concession will be reduced to $2. Money raised from concession sales and from donations during the day will support of Free the Children, an international charity aimed at removing educational barriers for children around the world.

“Last year the 125,000 Canadians that came to our theatres on Community Day helped us to raise over $530,000 in one morning and I hope that this year we’ll raise even more,” said Ellis Jacob, president and CEO of Cineplex Entertainment.
