National Cinema Day: The Sequel. Celebrating Movies with $4 Tickets, All Formats, All Day.

Hollywood is making an offer you can’t refuse.

With its love of sequels, Hollywood is serving up another fan favorite this Sunday, bringing back the wildly popular National Cinema Day to theaters across the country—tickets to any movie you want to see for $4. 

On  Sunday, August 27, the North Bend Theatre and 3,000 other theaters will offer discounted tickets to all movies. Have you been waiting to see Barbie for the first, second or third time? This is the perfect opportunity. Last year, over 8 million moviegoers attended the first-ever National Cinema Day. And this year will be a “bigger and better day,” says Jackie Brenneman, president of The Cinema Foundation.

“Following the rousing success of the first annual National Cinema Day, we welcome everyone to join us for the communal experience of one of America’s favorite pastimes – moviegoing,” says Brenneman. “We look forward to gathering at the movies and celebrating an exciting slate of new releases and classics, from beloved family favorites and outrageous comedies to thought-provoking dramas and thrilling adventures. There’s something for everyone. Let’s all go!”

Beth Burrows, owner of the North Bend Theatre, welcomes the event. “For theaters, National Cinema Day is becoming the industry’s love letter to our audiences as we say goodbye to summer and prepare for a full slate of films for the fall. It is our chance to show how much we appreciate you. Come see Barbie. I hope the theater is afloat in a sea of pink!”

Burrows added, “We want moviegoers to get the discounted tickets on the very first minute of National Cinema Day. So in addition to Barbie at noon, 3:30 PM, and 7 PM, we are offering a special midnight screening of the 1977 Japanese cult classic House  at midnight (late Saturday/early Sunday).”

House is an ideal midnight movie, unlike any movie you’ve seen. It has been called delirious, trippy, surreal, and absolutely original. The director, Nobuhiko Obayashi, throws everything at this movie, employing every imaginable camera trick and every film-making idea that enters his mind. This is a must-see, late-night cult classic. The move is unrated, but due to its mature nature, it is recommended for ages 16+.
