2013 Cans Film Festival

 WEHRENBERG THEATERS' CANS FILM FESTIVAL   
Donate canned food & see movies for FREE!

Wehrenberg Theaters will host its annual 'Cans Film Festival' to benefit The Salvation Army's Tree of Lights Campaign on Saturday December 7th from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
     On this day, theater guests who bring at least five canned food items to Wehrenberg Theaters' Campbell 16 Cine will receive FREE ADMISSION to any movie that day before 5 p.m!
     Guests who bring a total of fifteen canned good items will then also receive a free movie pass to use during a future visit. Wehrenberg Theaters will also award one year-long movie pass to the single largest canned food donation received during the food drive in the entire theatre circuit. 
      Wehrenberg Theaters' Cans Film Festival is one of the Ozarks largest annual food drives and helps re-stock The Salvation Army's Emergency Food Pantry shelves during a time when donations to help those who are less fortunate are most needed. 
     In 2012, the Ozarks community donated more than 26,000 canned food items during this single-day event. 
     Local volunteers with UPS will help collect donations at the theater during the food drive. However, hundreds of volunteers will be needed at The Salvation Army's main location on December 7 beginning at noon to help sort & pack away all of the canned good items once they arrive. 
     To sign-up to volunteer or for more information please call (417) 862-5509 ext. 116
