Langley Cineplex showing movies for ninth annual Community Day

Community Day benefits the ME to WE organization.

Pandas, trolls and mammoths are all lined up for audiences at Community Day, when Cineplex shows family-friendly movies for charity.

Five movies will be shown at Cineplex theatres, including Cineplex Langley on the morning of Saturday, Oct. 14 to raise money for charity. Showing on Oct. 14 are Kung Fu Panda 3, Trolls, Ice Age: Collision Course, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.

People can view the movies for free but donations are accepted and the sales of treats goes to the cause as well.

The doors open at 9 a.m. with the movies starting at 9:30 a.m., and 100 per cent of proceeds go to the cause.

For the seventh consecutive year, Cineplex Community Day (“Community Day”) will treat people to a selection movies, with all proceeds from donations and select concession sales supporting the company’s national charitable partner, WE Charity, part of WE – a family of organizations that makes doing good, doable.

Popcorn, soft drinks and select candy will cost $2.50 each and people can buy a variety of ME to WE Cineplex Change Bracelets with motivational sayings.

Details are posted online at Cineplex.com/CommunityDay.

“We are proud of our continued relationship with and support of WE and remain committed to supporting initiatives that empower young people across the country,” stated Ellis Jacob, Cineplex’s president and CEO.

“As one of the country’s largest employers of youth, we know firsthand that Canada’s youth have the power to inspire and create positive change to make a lasting impact on the world around them. We are proud to play a role in making that happen.”
