Cans Film Festival: Pay for cinema tickets with tinned food for one day only



On Sunday 11th July at 11am, Parkway Cinema Beverley will be hosting a very special screening of “Tom and Jerry The Movie” where admission will be two cans of food per person, which will be donated to the East Yorkshire Foodbank.

You may dream of strolling down the Cannes Croisette during the Film Festival, or mingling with the stars at the premiers. Sadly they can’t promise that but you could enjoy the great family movie Tom and Jerry while helping a great cause at “Parkways Cans Film Festival”.

Cliff Baillie, General Manager at the Parkway Beverley said: “We wanted to help the community in a fun and unique way.

“We are delighted that the East Yorkshire Foodbank thought a ‘Cans Film Festival’ was not just a terrible pun, but also a good idea. We hope our customers will donate as much as possible and enjoy the film too.”

Tickets can only be collected in person at the cinema with your donation. Donations will be accepted during box office hours from 6th July onwards to secure tickets in advance.

The cans that would be most appreciated by the foodbank are tinned fruit, custard, rice pudding and vegetables.

Anyone facing hunger can call East Yorkshire Foodbank on 01482 772060 or visit
