Enjoy Free Movies and $2 Select Refreshments at Cineplex Theaters

Plan some time with friends and family this weekend and make a trip over to your local Cineplex theater. Set your alarms, because you can get free movies starting at 9am this Saturday, October 20th. To sweeten the deal, there are also select concession items on sale for $2. A family fun day for under $20, interested?

Find out what’s playing at a theater near you.

Door’s open at 8:30am and movies start at 9am with a wide selection for everyone; ranging from child-geared movies like How to train your dragon to Mission Impossible: Ghost protocol. All the proceeds from the sale of refreshments going to the Starlight foundation as well; not only are you seeing a free movie, but helping support a great cause as well.

Some Serious Movie Madness

I usually hate Monday’s but this deal got me a little excited.

Being a huge movie buff when I came across this offer from Cineplex I instantly texted my girlfriend. So here’s the scoop my fellow Canucks; every Saturday morning at 11am (until 28th April 2012) we can watch a ‘family favorite movie’ for only $2.50 (inc tax)!

This deal won’t be available in every Cineplex, but we did find a list of participating Theaters (please check it before turning up at your local Cineplex). For those of you like me who read ‘family favourite movie’ and went; hmmmm….. what do Cineplex mean by that? Again I went on the hunt and found a list of movies and dates that you should review.

From the look of the pdf link above there seems to be a different movie every week rather than a bunch to choose from every Saturday. But there are some cool movies to watch from Shrek to the Land Before Time and even ET (I never went to watch ET at the cinema so I was stoked to read about this).

A nice touch is that Cineplex is giving all proceeds to the Starlight Children’s Foundation of Canada, all of a sudden I now have a favorite cinema chain. This promo is a great way to spend some time with your family and potentially show the little ones the movies of old that you loved to watch growing up, and all on a toonie too. I’m not sure about availability or if you need to purchase tickets in advance.

But I do hope this promotion is picked up well and spreads a good message for a good cause; so share this post on facebook and Pinterest to spread the word!

Free Movie Day at Cineplex Theatres

In support of the Starlight Children’s Foundation, Cineplex Canada is organizing a community day on October 22nd where they will be offering a variety of free movies starting at 9 am. Customers can also enjoy a regular popcorn, regular fountain drink and select candy for as cheap as $2. The entire proceeds of these products sales will go to the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

I had a look at the selection of movies for the theater close to my place and they had some really good ones. Yogi Bear in 3D, the Green Lantern and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (1st part) were among the choice of movies. These are not the latest released of course, but if you didn’t have the chance to see any of these in a theater this might be a good opportunity. And it sounds like a fun and free activity do to with your kids!

Cineplex.comCustomers have until tomorrow (December 31st) to enjoy this promotion where you can get one free movie download whenever you buy one (a bogof promotion). The offer is not valid on rental movies unfortunately, it’s restricted to the purchase of download versions. I did a quick comparison between the prices of Cineplex download movies’ and DVD prices from and I was really surprised by how expensive prices are at For example you will need to pay $19.99 to download Sex and the City 2 while you can get the DVD version for only $9.99 at Obviously you need to take into consideration shipping costs to get your DVD but as Amazon is still running their free shipping promotion on any order of $25+, it’s easy to buy a few items and not pay any shipping fees at all.

At least this buy one get one free offer brings down the movie prices at to a more reasonable level, but you can only enjoy it for 2 more days so hurry up.
