On Saturday, November 4, Cineplex Community Day returns for its 11th year, bringing together Canadians of all ages for a memorable morning filled with free family-friendly movies on the big screen, and new this year, a morning of free gaming at Playdium and The Rec Room. In theatre, $1.00 from every concession order and XSCAPE Play Card purchase for the entire day, and at The Rec Room and Playdium, $1.00 from every food and beverage order and game band purchase throughout the day will support BGC Canada (formerly Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada).
