In addition to the $3 ticket price, moviegoers on National Cinema Day will get to enjoy an exclusive sneak peek of upcoming titles from A24, Amazon Studios, Disney, Focus Features, Lionsgate, Neon, Paramount, Sony Pictures Classics, Sony, United Artists Releasing, Universal, and Warner Bros. There will also be special in-theater promotions as well, according to a press release.
“After this summer’s record-breaking return to cinemas, we wanted to do something to celebrate moviegoing,” said
Cinema Foundation president Jackie Brenneman. “We’re doing it by offering a ‘thank you’ to the moviegoers that
made this summer happen, and by offering an extra enticement for those who haven’t made it back yet.”
There are over 20 participating movie theaters in Seattle and the surrounding area, including in Bellevue and Kirkland. These include Regal, Cinemark, and AMC theaters as well as Seattle institutions such as SIFF Cinema. This is a great chance to save money while getting to see a newly-released film.

Note: the $3 price does not include tax or ticket fees.
