This weekend, for one day only, movie fans in El Paso will be able to check out a movie for only $3.


As part of National Cinema Day, movie theatres across America are hoping to lure moviegoers back to the theatre with a day where admission for all movies will be available for only $3.

The last two years of the pandemic affected everything, including the box office.   Remember how we stayed home and binge-watched everything as a dry spell hit the cinematic world where no new movies were released?

Therefore, to gain back movie fans, the Cinema Foundation, a non-profit under the National Association of Theater Owners, created a nationwide discount day offering movie tickets for only $3.

The Cinema Foundation selected Labor Day weekend to incorporate National Cinema Day, especially since this holiday weekend is traditionally the slowest for theaters nationwide. If successful, National Cinema Day will become an annual event.

Furthermore, moviegoers visiting National Cinema Day on September 3 will enjoy a bonus first look at upcoming movies from big-time studios such as Amazon Studios, Disney, Focus Features, Lionsgate, Sony Pictures Classics, Universal, Warner Bros., and many more.

So if it's been a hot minute since you've been to the movies, this may be your chance to revisit. Also, if you can't make it this weekend, look for discount days (usually Tuesdays) at your local movie theatre, where admission drops to $5 per flick.
