National Cinema Day returns this Sunday, August 27, with tickets priced at just $4 per screening all day long at AMC, Regal, and other participating theaters. Plus, for an extra dollar, moviegoers can also enjoy a small popcorn and drink.
“Building on the unprecedented success of last year’s inaugural National Cinema Day, the Cinema Foundation is calling on film fans across the country to gather for a national day to celebrate the magic of the movies on the big screen,” the National Cinema Foundation said in a statement.
“The second annual National Cinema Day celebrates the power of movies to bring us all together, and discounted admissions for all movies at participating U.S. theaters in all formats (including Premium Large Format screens) will be no more than $4.”
