Lights! Camera! Savings! The Cinema Foundation is making this Labor Day weekend more action-packed with its newly introduced National Cinema Day. Typically, the holiday weekend is slow at the box office, so the Foundation is enticing the public to enjoy a flick with friends and family by offering a blockbuster deal for one day only.
On Saturday, September 3, tickets will be just $3 at the majority of movie theaters across the country.
The nationwide discount day will be available at more than 3,000 theaters and on more than 30,000 screens.
At participating theaters, tickets will be no more than $3 for every showing in every format. The discounted ticket pricing does not include tax or online and/or third-party ticketing fees.
Here in Colorado, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, AMC Theatres, Cinemark, Harkins Theatres and Regal Cinemas are all participating.
Harkins Theatres Bonus: Harkins Theatres is also offering a medium soft drink and medium popcorn for just $3 each. The concessions special is only available to My Harkins Awards members.
AMC Theatres Bonus: AMC Theatres is offering its Cameo Combo (popcorn and fountain drink) for just $5.
Before each showing, audience members will enjoy previews of upcoming films from A24, Amazon Studios, Disney, Focus Features, Lionsgate, Neon, Paramount, Sony Pictures Classics, Sony, United Artists Releasing, Universal and Warner Bros.
It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy a summer blockbuster on the big screen again or experience a new flick you’ve been wanting to check out.
Frugal film fanatics might even be able to fit in a few screenings for the day, if they plan accordingly.
