The weather outside is getting frightful, and with the holidays almost upon us we may be spending way more time in shopping malls than we'd ideally like to. If you're hankering for a much-needed break from the stress of holiday prep, and you're looking to spend some quality time with the kids that doesn't involve leaving a trail of wrapping paper all over the floor, look no further than Family Favourites!
For the first two Saturdays in December, in select theatres, Cineplex is showing holiday-themed kid-friendly movies for just 2.99 per ticket, with a portion of the proceeds going to WE.org. Check out the trailers below and click here for tickets and more info!
Even the premise of this modern holiday comedy classic makes us chuckle: the hilarious Will Ferrell stars as Buddy, a human orphan raised by North Pole elves who decides to seek out his birth father in New York during the holiday season. Heartwarming hijinks ensue as Buddy tries to fit in with human society while injecting much-needed holiday cheer into the hearts of some pretty jaded friends and family. A perfect film for the whole family! Bring a bag of spaghetti with maple syrup and quote along: "Smiling's my favourite!"
This groundbreaking animated feature used cutting-edge motion capture technology to create an almost eerily lifelike realization of its characters, a cinematic first at its release. Tom Hanks memorably plays multiple characters in this tale of a boy who takes a Christmas Eve trip on a magical train to the North Pole, and in the process learns about the power of leadership, courage, and belief.
