Free Movie at the Cinema
Join the fun and festivities at Solomon Valley Cinema. H&R Block Beloit is sponsoring free movie at the Cinema on Saturday, December 21.
According to Amanda Schwerman, Cinema Manager, “We want to show appreciation to people in the area for their support throughout the year. Their patronage is what makes it possible to keep the doors open, the prices down, and the movie selection good.”
This year, the Cinema is partnering with H&R Block Beloit to bring Home Alone to the theatre. “We chose to sponsor this program because of our commitment to community,” said Robert Davis, H&R Block Beloit Owner. “We feel fortunate to have such a nice facility in the area and to get new releases in the theatre so quickly.”
There is no admission charge for the movies. Concessions will be for sale. The movie is open to people of all ages. There will be a drawing at each showing for punch cards with 10 free adult admissions and 10 free child admissions.
Christmas is a time to enjoy family and friends. Join your friends at Solomon Valley Cinema on December 21 for Home Alone. Showing will be at 2:00pm.

With the holiday season approaching, a great way to keep your dollars local is with Chamber Checks! Spendable at over 120 Chamber businesses, Chamber Checks make wonderful gifts and employee incentives. These gift certificates are easy to use, just like checks.
Businesses, if you receive Chamber Checks, accept them like a normal check and deposit them with your daily deposits. Please remember to educate your staff on how to accept Chamber Checks. If you have questions, please call the Chamber Office for details.
Chamber Checks are spent exclusively with Beloit Area Chamber of Commerce merchants adding to the local economy.
