Cinema Foundation, a non-profit organization, initiated National Cinema Day in 2022.

The non-profit organization was created by the National Association of Theatre Owners. It says that the new national holiday seeks to encourage more people to go back to their movie theater-watching routine.

Coming to a theater near you, the Cinema Foundation welcomes moviegoers to celebrate a day at the movies with discounted admissions to kick-off National Cinema Day, September 3rd.

The one-day event, held at more than 3,000 participating locations with more than 30,000 screens, will bring together audiences of all ages to enjoy a day at the movies with exclusive previews and special in-theater promotions at a discounted admission of no more than $3. National Cinema Day celebrates a summer of record-breaking moviegoing with movies and a special sneak peek of upcoming titles from A24, Amazon Studios, Disney, Focus Features, Lionsgate, Neon, Paramount, Sony Pictures Classics, Sony, United Artists Releasing, Universal, and Warner Bros., only on September 3.

“After this summer’s record-breaking return to cinemas, 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 that made this summer happen, and by offering an extra enticement for those who haven’t made it back yet.”

Brenneman said that the idea for a national movie theater holiday was in the works well before 2020, but that the Covid-19 pandemic forced those plans to be postponed.
