REF NO.: 65

SUBJECT: Family Day at the movies is back

DATE: Dec. 4

Family Day at the Movies is back this December 14 with a laugh out loud holiday comedy Home Alone starring Macaulay Culkin. Alumni and their friends are invited to a special screening at Empire Studio 12 at Avalon Mall in St. John’s. The admission is only $2. Rumor has it that Santa Claus will try to make it, too. (We are ironing out some reindeer parking issues at the moment.)
Children must be accompanied by an adult during the movie. Tickets are available at the Office of Alumni Affairs and Development only and must be purchased in advance.
Last year’s event sold out quickly so be sure to get your tickets early. To purchase tickets or to get more information, please call the Office of Alumni Affairs and Development at 737-4354, Development or email
