Wehrenberg Theatres will once again host its annual “Cans Film Festival” to benefit The Salvation Army’s “Tree of Lights” campaign. Saturday, Dec. 7, guests who bring five canned food items to any Wehrenberg Theatre will receive free admission to any movie that day starting before 5 p.m.
Guests who bring an additional ten cans or more per person (15 or more total per person) will also receive a free movie pass for a future visit. In addition, Wehrenberg Theatres will again award a year-long movie pass to the single largest donation received in the theatre circuit.
Cans Film Festival stocks the local food pantries every year during the holiday season when those less fortunate need it most. 2012 nearly matched the 2011 record of over 335,000 canned food items during the one-day event. The 2012 campaign was just under that total with 330,000 cans, but organizers hope to set a new record this year.
A number of Hollywood hits will be showcased during Cans Film Festival. Families will get a kick out of Frozen, an animated comedy adventure. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Thor: The Dark World (2D and 3D) are sure to be popular at Cans Film Festival as well. All applicable 3D shows are valid for Cans Film Festival (up to theatre capacity).
Both Osage Village 5 Cine and Eagles' Landing 8 Cine will participate in this year's festival.
Wehrenberg Theatres is not responsible for sell-outs and cannot offer rain checks. Please note theatres will award one pass per person present; theatres cannot offer one pass for every 15 cans.
