Movie Theaters in the U.S. Will Sell $3 Tickets on September 3 for National Cinema Day
According to the Associated Press, more than 3,000 locations and 30,000 screens will be part of the campaign.
September 3 is National Cinema Day, and movie theaters across the U.S. are getting in the spirit of the day by offering $3 movie tickets. According to the Associated Press, more than 3,000 locations and 30,000 screens will be part of the campaign.
While there are signs that the public is finally returning to in-person movie screenings in larger numbers—as of Aug 21, the domestic summer box office reached $3.3B—many local theaters are still struggling. A $3 ticket might be just the trick to get some patrons through the door for the first time in years.
“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.”
