National Cinema Day Will Let Movie Viewers Pay $3 For Tickets

National Cinema Day Will Let Movie Viewers Pay $3 For Tickets: Big screens across the city will entice moviegoers with $3 tickets for “National Cinema Day” for just one day. The blockbuster bargain, with reduced tickets being made accessible across 45 movie theatres in the Chicago area and more than 3,000 nationwide, is the event’s standout feature.

According to Cinema Foundation President Jackie Brenneman, “We wanted to do something to honor moviegoing after this summer’s record-breaking return to theatres.” We’re doing it by saying “thank you” to the moviegoers who helped make this summer possible and providing an added incentive for those who haven’t yet returned.

Additional Information Regarding National Cinema Day

The weekend of Labor Day is usually one of the least busy in theatres. The August slump has been particularly severe for exhibitors this year. The lack of significant new releases was mentioned by Cineworld, the company that controls Regal Cinemas, in its most recent intentions to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

However, if it is a success, National Cinema Day might attract a lot of moviegoers who might come back in the fall. A sizzle reel of future movies from A24, Amazon Studios, Disney, Focus Features, Lionsgate, Neon, Paramount, Sony Pictures Classics, Sony, United Artists Releasing, Universal, and Warner Bros. will be shown to ticket buyers before each screening.
