National Cinema Day aims to celebrate cinema, as ticket prices are slashed around the country – and big chains like Odeon and Vue are participating.
Over 550 cinemas will be participating in National Cinema Day on Saturday 3rd September 2022. From huge chains to indie cinemas, tickets will be available from just £3.
Some cinemas will be showing rereleases of older films, with the hope that friends and family alike will be able to participate in the day.
National Cinema Day has been developed by the cross-industry body Cinema First and is supported by the Film Distributors’ Association and the U.K. Cinema Association.
With cinema attendance down across the board, the hope is that schemes like this will tempt people back to the big screen.
You can find out more about National Cinema Day, including if your local cinema is participating, at their official website.
