If you still have yet to see the blockbusters “Barbie” or “Oppenheimer”, now is your chance! For one day only, many theaters in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs will offer a steep discount you don’t want to miss.
National Cinema Day
August 27 is National Cinema Day, an incentive to attract more moviegoers to their local theaters. Last year was the inaugural promotion and it proved to be quite successful. According to the Associated Press, more than 8.1 million people purchased discounted movie tickets.
Tickets will cost only $4 at over 3000 participating theaters nationwide. National chains like AMC, Movie Tavern and Regal Cinemas, will be participating. The Landmark Ritz Five, PFS East and PFS Bourse will also be participating
Some local independent theaters, like the Bryn Mawr Film Institute, are also getting in on the action.
Catch A Flick
Take advantage of National Cinema Day and check out brand-new titles like “Gran Turismo”, “Blue Beetle” and “Strays”. Of course there’s still time to seethe biggest summer hits like “Barbie”, and “Meg 2: The Trench”. If you’re looking for a classic, nostalgic movie, classics like “Jurassic Park”, “Oldboy” and “American Graffiti” are back up on the big screen.
Take the kids to see films like “Elemental”, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem”, or sing-along to “Little Mermaid”. Enjoy new independent films such as “Theater Camp”, “Bottoms” and “Golda”.
If you’re looking to see Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer” you can see the biopic in IMAX 70mm at the Regal UA theater in King of Prussia, one of just 19 theaters in the country screening the film in its most immersive format.
All four dollars a ticket.
As we begin to say goodbye to summer and prepare for back-to-school and the impending fall season, indeed this is a great opportunity for some end of the summer fun.
