Free family-friendly flicks help raise money for charity

NANAIMO – Nanaimo's Galaxy Cinemas offer selection of movies.

On Saturday (Oct. 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.

Cineplex Community Day treats guests at Nanaimo’s Galaxy Cinemas to a selection of family-friendly movies with all proceeds from donations and select concession sales supporting We.

This year’s film line-up includes films such as The Good Dinosaur, Inside Out, Zootopia, The Finest Hours and The Jungle Book. Select concessions like popcorn, soft drinks and certain candy items are priced at $2 each. Theatres will also be selling Me to We Cineplex ‘change bracelets’ for $2, which  feature a motivational statement  to inspire youth to create positive change. All proceeds from select concession and bracelet sales will benefit We.

Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis only. Doors open at 8:30 a.m., movies will begin between 9-10 a.m. All locations will return to regular programming in the afternoon.
