You can see a movie for just $3 this weekend at dozens of theaters around the city in honor of National Cinema Day.
On Saturday, September 3, participating movie theaters will show all movies in all formats at all showtimes for $3. Plus, you’ll see special in-theater promotions and sneak peeks of upcoming titles from A24, Amazon Studios, Disney, Focus Features, Lionsgate, Neon, Paramount, Sony Pictures Classics, Sony, United Artists Releasing, Universal and Warner Bros.
Check your local theater to find out what’ll be playing, but we’ve seen everything on the line-up from Spider-Man: No Way Home to the classic Jaws on the list.
The event is hosted by Cinema Foundation, a nonprofit organization supporting the cinema industry, to celebrate this summer’s record-breaking box office season. The nationwide event will be held at more than 3,000 participating locations with more than 30,000 screens.
“After this summer’s record-breaking return to cinemas, we wanted to do something to celebrate moviegoing,” Cinema Foundation President Jackie Brenneman said in a press release. “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.”
You can check to see if your favorite cinema is in on the promotion by entering your ZIP Code at National Cinema Day’s website, where you can also see showtimes and buy tickets. Just a heads up that the $3 price doesn’t include tax or ticketing fees.
