Shrek Is Back In Cineplex Cinemas This Weekend & Tickets Are Under $5

Whatever you’ve got planned for the weekend, cancel it. Shrek is coming back to Cineplex Cinemas this weekend, and the early 2000’s nostalgia will be way too good to miss! Better still, Cineplex is offering this golden opportunity to see your favourite childhood movie for just $2.99, including tax. It would literally be rude to miss out on this Shrek-taclar opportunity.

If it’s been way too long since you spent a little quality time with the world’s most lovable ogre, Cineplex Cinema is giving you the opportunity to make things right. This weekend, for one day and one showing only, you can watch Shrek at select Cineplex Cinemas, for just $2.99 a ticket.

According to the Cineplex website,Shrek will be showing at 11 a.m. on Saturday morning, as part of their Family Favourites special offer. While this is a little earlier than most people like to go to the movies, it’s definitely worth getting up for. Sleeping in is ogre-rated anyway!

If you think Shrek is just medi-orge, don’t worry. Cineplex is offering a different movie every Saturday at 11 a.m., with new and old titles ranging from Dora And The Lost City Of Gold to Polar Express in 3D.

According to the Cineplex website, this special weekend offer will be running until the end of the year, with the last showing landing on December 13, 2019. Until then, there will be a new movie each Saturday, concluding with Arthur Christmas on November 29, and Dr. Seuss' The Grinch on December 13.

At just $2.99 every week, Canadians can save over $10 per ticket, as general admission tickets usually cost around $14. At the Family Favourites screening, all ticket prices are the same, including adults, children, and seniors.

There is no voucher or promo code necessary to get the discounted tickets, all you have to do is attend the 11 a.m. Saturday movie showing.

Even better, SCENE cardholders will still get 25 points for this ticket, despite it being nearly 75% off the usual ticket price. 

If you can't make it to the movies this weekend, here is a look at what else will be shown as part of the $2.99 Family Favourites offer:

October 19: Shrek

October 25: Paw Patrol: Ready Race Rescue

November 2: The Angry Birds Movie 2

November 8: Dora And The Lost City Of Gold

November 15: Charlotte's Web
