By Dolores Quintana
The Cinema Foundation is about to launch the first National Cinema Day, a day that celebrates movie-going and gives cinema fans an added incentive to patronize their favorite theatres to watch first-run films, namely a one-day reduced price of three dollars a ticket at participating theatres chains like AMC, Landmark, Laemmle, Regency, Cinemark, Regal, Alamo Drafthouse cinemas.
Via press release, The Cinema Foundation states, “The one-day event, held at more than 3,000 participating locations with more than 30,000 screens, will bring together audiences of all ages to enjoy a day at the movies with exclusive previews and special in-theater promotions at a discounted admission of no more than $3. National Cinema Day celebrates a summer of record-breaking moviegoing with movies and a special sneak peek of upcoming titles from A24, Amazon Studios, Disney, Focus Features, Lionsgate, Neon, Paramount, Sony Pictures Classics, Sony, United Artists Releasing, Universal, and Warner Bros., only on September 3.”
Cinema Foundation president Jackie Brenneman said, “After this summer’s record-breaking return to cinemas, we wanted to do something to celebrate moviegoing. 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.”
