National Cinema Day 2023 – Film ticket for Rs 75 only!
National Cinema Day is observed on 3rd September to encourage movie lovers to go to the theatre and enjoy a movie on the big screen. On this day theaters provide a special one-day-only promotion at a special price. The day brings together audiences of all ages to enjoy a day at the movies.
On the heels of National Cinema Day, a similar event National Cinema Week is celebrated from October 7-13 for the moviegoers in the U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean. Most theaters offer unlimited popcorn on Family Day on Sundays and special loyalty club member prizes and prizes on Mondays. Cinema Week is also helping to market a handful of event screenings, most of which don’t go as planned.
Cinema is just another English word for a movie theater. The movie industry as we know it today originated in the early 19th century through a series of technological developments: the creation of photography, the discovery of the illusion of motion by combining individual still images, and the study of human and animal locomotion.
In America, the Cinema Foundation, a non-profit arm of the National Association of Theater Owners, on Sunday announced that Sept. 3 will be a nationwide discount day in more than 3,000 theaters and on more than 30,000 screens. Typically, Labor Day weekend is one of the slowest weekends for the movie industry, so this is a way for the movie theater industry to give back and thank fans for returning to the cinemas this past summer.
