Holiday Gift Giving: Empire Theatre Holiday Gift Cards

Empire Theatres

The holidays are here, there’s no denying that. Though here in London we haven’t even received our first snowfall, Christmas is evident everywhere you turn; decorations on city streets, holiday music in stores and commercials on TV, ‘tis the season.

This year I’m really looking forward to Christmas because we’ve chosen to simplify things in my family. Instead of buying a gift for each member of my extended family, we’ve decided to draw names and buy only one gift for that special person. This is going to help both financially and with the ease of shopping. I can put my entire focus and energy on finding one perfect gift, for one perfect person.

I can’t say too much about the gift(s) I’m planning to buy as my family does read City Mom from time to time, but here’s something that may be on my list…shh!


The Empire Theatre Holiday Gift Card program for 2011 began on November 1 and will be available until December 24* (good news for last-minute shoppers).  And the perks with the program are fantastic.

When you spend $30 on Empire Theatre Holiday Gift Cards you get $30 in coupons.

*The last day for online orders is December 18 in order to receive them in time for Christmas.


You can get the gift cards and gift tins at any Empire Theatre in Canada. You can also make your purchase online at

For London readers, our local Empire Theatre is the Empire Wellington 8 Cinemas at 983 Wellington Road, South.

So now that you know of the perfect gift to buy your loved ones, you can sit back, relax and enjoy all the season has to offer. The only question that exists is whether you will give the bonus coupon bundle to your special someone or keep it for yourself.

Happy Holidays!
