    The Cine will be hosting the "Cans Film Festival" on Sat. Dec. 7. Despite the inclement weather, the festival is still on.
    The “Cans Film Festival” will benefit The Salvation Army’s “Tree of Lights” campaign. Saturday, 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," the area’s most popular food drive, 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 (2D and 3D), a stunning, animated comedy adventure. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Thor: The Dark World 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). This is the perfect opportunity to see how far 3D technology has come!
