This Saturday on National Cinema Day, cinema venues across the UK are slashing prices in a celebration of cinema and film-going.

Fancy seeing Top Gun: Maverick, Minions: The Rise of Gru or Bullet Train for a fraction of the price of a usual ticket? Then get down to your local cinema on Saturday 3 September.

Over 550 venues have signed up to participate in the event, including all of the major UK chains and a wide range of smaller operators and venues.

The first industry-wide initiative of this kind since the 1990s, National Cinema Day will see all participating theatres offer tickets for all screenings from just £3, the aim being to encourage as large and wide an audience of filmgoers as possible to enjoy the big screen experience.

Making movies affordable

National Cinema Day has been developed by the cross-industry body Cinema First and is supported by the Film Distributors’ Association and the UK Cinema Association.

Looking forward to this weekend’s event, Iain Jacob, Chair of Cinema First, said:

“There seems no better time than now to celebrate UK cinema-going, one of the nation’s favourite out-of-home leisure activities.

“Coming off the back of a very strong summer for the sector and looking forward to further film highlights over the rest of the year, we wanted to give everyone a chance to enjoy the big screen experience with the film of their choice.

“We recognise the impacts of the current cost of living challenges facing many households and wanted to do our bit.”
