GOLDEN Screen Cinemas (GSC) treated more than 100 children from the Ti-Ratana Welfare Home to a movie preview of Ice Age 2 The Meltdown.
The animated movie of lovable pre-historic characters features the voices of Ray Romano, Denis Leary, Queen Latifah, John Lequizamo, Jay Leno, Will Arnett, Josh Peck and Seann William Scott.
Sequels to movies tend to be disappointing but this was not the case as the characters of Manny, Sid and Diego kept the children at the edge of their seats.
The story speaks about an incredible adventure where the three main characters must warn everyone and somehow figure out a way to escape the coming deluge.
GSC marketing manager Tan Gaik Lian said they wanted to show that the children were also an important part of society.
They should not feel left out. It is our corporate responsibility to give back to the less fortunate, said Tan.
Although the children could not take any of the cartoon characters home, they were, however, given some time to spend with Manny, Sid and Diego before they were ushered into the cinema hall for the special screening of the movie.
Founder and principal of the Home Rev K. Dhammaratana accompanied the children.
