See a family movie for only 2.99 with March Break Family Favourites!

March break is on the horizon and you know what that means – days filled with fun family activities and togetherness! It’s a wonderful opportunity to bond with your kids by spending quality time together doing something you all enjoy.

Or, if you’re like us, a couple of days of that and then more days of frazzled parents pulling out their hair trying to come up with affordable, family-friendly outings and day trips to get the kids out of the house. Let’s face it, it’s a lot of pressure to fill all those days and keep the kids occupied and entertained. Sometimes you need a break from your break!

Cineplex has a perfect solution. We’ve expanded our Family Favourites programming for this special week, offering a choice of FOUR movies daily at a reduced price of 2.99 per ticket in addition to our regular Saturday Family Favourites lineup.

Event dates and details below. The movies are:


Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, August Pullman (Jacob Tremblay) becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to discover their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out. Based on the New York Times bestseller, this movie is perfect for the entire family. Warning: Bring tissues!

Despicable Me 3

This sequel to the fan-favourite series continues the adventures of Gru (Steve Carell), Lucy (Kristen Wiig), their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions. When Gru learns he has a long-lost twin brother, Dru, the pair team up and Gru contemplates a return to villainy. The reunited siblings soon find themselves in an uneasy alliance to take down the elusive Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker), a former 1980s child star who seeks revenge against the world. This animated adventure is full of humour and heart and is designed to be enjoyed by all ages!

Based on the beloved children's book, Ferdinand tells the story of a giant bull with a big heart. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, Ferdinand (John Cena) is captured and torn from his home, sent to be in the bullfighting ring. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure. Ferdinand proves you cannot judge a bull by its cover. This Oscar-nominated feature pairs a heartwarming story with lush animation, fantastic voice work, and plenty of humour.

The Boss Baby

This Oscar-nominated hilariously universal story about how a new baby's arrival impacts a family is told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly imaginative 7-year-old named Tim. With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, it's an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages. Kids will love the slapstick and practical jokes, adults will love the delicious irony of Alec Baldwin essentially reprising his role from Glengarry Glen Ross but in baby form.
