Select US movie theaters will offer $3 movie tickets next Saturday in honor of National Cinema Day.

“After this summer’s record-breaking return to cinemas, we desired to do something to have a good time moviegoing,” said Cinema Foundation President Jackie Brenneman.
“We’re doing it by offering a ‘thanks’ to the moviegoers that made this summer occur and by offering an additional enticement for many who haven’t made it back yet.”
The inspiration said the event is scheduled for September third and can include nearly 3,000 theaters across the country.
National Cinema Day arrives on the silver screen shortly after the bottom box office opening week with a meager $52.7 million in grosses.
Major chains, including AMC and Regal Cinemas, are participating within the event in addition to all major film studios.
“Today is for movie lovers across the US, celebrating how movies are supposed to be seen, on the large screen,” Regal Cinema’s chief marketing officer Ken Thewes in an announcement.
The event coincides with the discharge of an prolonged edition of “Spiderman: No Way Home.”
