This Saturday, September 3, participating theaters throughout NYC will be showing all movies in all formats for just $3 in honor of National Cinema Day.
The Cinema Foundation, a non-profit arm of the National Association of Theater Owners, is hosting this nationwide event as a way to entice people to head to theaters throughout the U.S. In total, more than 3,000 theaters will be participating, including major chains such as Regal Cinemas and AMC, showing movies on over 30,000 screens at this discounted price.
“After this summer’s record-breaking return to cinemas, we wanted to do something to celebrate moviegoing,” said Cinema Foundation president Jackie Brenneman. “We’re doing it by offering a ‘thank you’ to the moviegoers that made this summer happen, and by offering an extra enticement for those who haven’t made it back yet.”
Audiences of all ages will also get a peek at exclusive previews of upcoming titles from A24, Amazon Studios, Disney, Focus Features, Lionsgate, Neon, Paramount, Sony Pictures Classics, Sony, United Artists Releasing, Universal, and Warner Bros., according to a press release, as well as special in-theater promotions before the movie starts.
