Canadian Deals & Coupons


“Astroboy” originally a Japanese franchise, is now a new animated 3D movie featuring the voices of Freddie Highmore, Kristen Bell, Nathan Lane, Charlize Theron, Eugene Levy, Matt Lucas, Bill Nighy, Donald Sutherland and Nicolas Cage. It is about “a young robot with incredible powers created by a brilliant scientist, Dr. Tenma in the image of the son he had lost. Unable to fulfill the grieving man’s expectations, our hero embarks on a journey in search of acceptance, becoming part of a group of rowdy kids led by a girl named Cora, experiencing betrayal, and a netherworld of robot gladiators led by the greedy ring master, Ham Egg, before he returns to save Metro City and reconcile with the father who had rejected him.”

The movie is set to come out on Oct 23 in the US/Canada, but you can see a FREE screening of the film on Oct 17!

You do have to be registered with gofobo to request the passes for the screenings. I did a test for the Toronto showing, and it is pretty easy to get the pass, the theatre for Toronto is the Silvercity Yonge and Eglinton. You select how many passes you want, confirm and then print out your tickets. Click on the select link below for the city that you are interested in.







The site notes that you need to “Arrive early! Seating is first-come, first-served, except for members of the reviewing press. This ticket does not guarantee you a seat! Theatre is overbooked to ensure a full house. Theatre is not responsible for overbooking. No admittance once screening has begun. This pass is the property of E1 Entertainment, which reserves the right to admit or refuse access to the theatre at the discretion of an authorized studio and/or theatre representative. Duplicate passes will not be accepted. Screening passes are non transferrable. This ticket is NOT for resale.”

    All the toronto passes are gone. You need an RSVP code. Anyone who has one and doesn’t need it my son and hubby would love to go. Astroboy was our favourite show as kids!!!

    Of course, no love for New Brunswick. Astroboy was one of the first cartoons I remember watching as a kid in the early 80’s, can’t wait to see it.

    Call me anal, but Eglington is actually spelled Eglinton. It surprises me that quite a lot of people misspell Eglinton with the extra g as I found out not too long ago on a thread on Chowhound Toronto.

    Anyways, I loved Astroboy too when it used to air in the ’80s.

  13. jen says:
