iBerkshires.com reports the North Adams Movieplex will host its annual "Five for Free" food drive on Thursday.

Theater officials say its a great way to get into the holiday spirit by helping those in need and enjoying some time at the movies.

Theater manager Scott Ingalls said those who bring in five nonperishable food items on Thursday between 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. will be admitted to the movie of their choice.

Ingalls said people can donate Wednesday or Thursday and receive a large popcorn if they aren't interested in watching a movie.

All the food collected will be given to the Berkshire Dream Center, a religious charitable organization that operates a food pantry at Living Hope Community Church on River Street.

North Adams Movieplex has held this holiday food drive for the past seven years and is dedicated to serving the community — especially around the holidays.
