The North Adams Movieplex is hosting its annual "Five for Free" food drive today. reports that according to theater officials, it’s 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 says those who bring in five nonperishable food items today between 3:30 and 7:30 pm will be admitted to the movie of their choice. Ingalls says people can donate to 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.
