In short, National Cinema Day is a one-day nationwide event sponsored by the non-profit The Cinema Foundation to encourage you and me to celebrate the theatrical experience by going to the movies.

Which Movies Are Four Bucks?

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

Every release, every seat, every format, every showtime.

The last time movie tickets cost $4 was in 1994 so Sunday’s promotion is kind of like a time machine for your wallet.

But instead of paying four bucks to watch The Little Rascals, Natural Born Killers, Clear and Present Danger, and It’s Pat: The Movie you’ll pay 1994 prices for Blue Beetle, Barbie, Oppenheimer, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.

Along with the $4 a ticket deal, most theaters are also offering moviegoers a break on concessions. And, they all have A/C!

El Paso Theaters Participating in National Cinema Day

Premiere Cinemas Basset: $4 every format
Flix Brewhouse: $4 every format, and $5 bottomless popcorn
Alamo Drafthouse: $4 for all the latest releases and classics in all formats
AMC: $4 all movies in all formats, and a small drink and popcorn combo for $5
Cinemark: $4 every movie in every format, and $1 off any-size popcorn, soda, or candy

The four-dollar deal, by the way, does not include tax or online and/or third-party ticketing fees.
