However the cinema-lover in me just had to let you know about Cineplex's new program called Family Favourites.
A different family movie will be offered exclusively at participating Cineplex theatres each Saturday morning at 11 a.m. (local time). Family Favourites will be offered at a discounted admission price of $2.50 for all ages. A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to the Starlight Children’s Foundation. (See, a charity is involved, which also softened my resolve).
The movies are classics, not new releases (think Jumanji, Shrek, ET, Babe, Madagascar and The Neverending Story) but are still a great and economical way to get out of the house and enjoy an old favourite as a family.
More information, including participating locations and a listing of which movies will be shown each Saturday, can be found at the Family Favourites website.
