Solomon Valley Cinema & H&R Block


Join the fun and festivities at Solomon Valley Cinema. H&R Block Beloit is sponsoring a free movie day at the Cinema on Saturday, December 6th.

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 Beethoven’s Christmas Adventure 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 6th at 2:00 pm for Beethoven’s Christmas Adventure.
