Movie theaters in the United States will sell movie tickets for $3 on September 3

Despite all the conveniences of streaming, there’s still something to be said for venturing out to see a movie in a movie theater. Sure, there aren’t an infinite number of options, and you can’t pause when something else requires your attention, but watching a compelling movie on the big screen is a treat in and of itself.

On September 3rd, US theaters will make it more affordable to have that experience. As part of a new ad National Film Day, more than 3,000 theaters in the US, including chains like AMC, will offer tickets at a discount of $3. With all the major movie studios and over 30,000 screens involved, there’s a good chance a theater near you will get involved.

“After the unprecedented return to theaters this summer, 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 who made this summer possible and by offering an added incentive for those who haven’t returned yet.”

As people return to theaters to see movies like other Top Gun: Maverick, the promotion comes at a time when the industry is still dealing with the aftermath of COVID-19. The pandemic saw movie studios significantly shorten theater windows and many chains, including Regal Cinemas, amid strict lockdown measures in the US and other parts of the world.
