Dads and the family are invited to bring their kids out for a special 'date night' at the movies, a program that Cinema Cafe has dubbed Little Date Night.

Cinema Cafe Pembroke in Virginia Beach and Cinema Cafe Riverdale in Hampton will each host a special Little Date Night showing of 'Onward' on Tuesday, March 17 at 6:15 p.m.

The movie will be followed by a St. Patrick’s Day Ice Cream Social with a sundae bar, which attendees can partake in for a small additional fee. Proceeds from the Ice Cream Social will benefit Variety, the Children’s Charity. And one lucky child from each event will go home with an Onward-themed 'pot of gold'. Show tickets are on sale now at this link.

Cinema Cafe’s Little Date Night enhances an early dinner show of a family-friendly movie with a few extra special features.

“Our Little Date Night program gives parents an opportunity to make fun, lasting memories with their kids, which has always been part of our mission and values at Cinema Cafe,” says Events Director Brittany Meadows. Before the movie, a kid-friendly activity or craft is included in admission; March’s event will be St. Patrick’s Day themed.

Parents can also purchase a special ticket to attend an Ice Cream Social immediately following the end of the movie, which includes a collectible Variety Gold Heart pin and two cups of ice cream for the sundae bar. Proceeds from the Ice Cream Social support Variety, the Children’s Charity, giving parents an opening to discuss charitable contribution and social impact.

Variety, a Children’s Charity is an organization that provides aid to children with disabilities and special needs who may fall through the cracks of government funding or other aid, in the form of imperative, relevant and practical equipment, services and experiences. Cinema Cafe has been a long-time supporter of Variety because the funds raised by Cinema Cafe stay in the region to help children in their community. The Ice Cream Social ticket includes a collectible Variety Gold Heart pin.
