Approximately two thirds of movie screens nationwide will participate Sept. 3 in National Cinema Day. All movies, all times, all formats $3.00, according to Variety.

This is a promotion to say "thanks" for coming back after COVID and to inject some fire into the fall season.  aDVANCE TICKETS ARE oN SALE on LINE . The convenience fee applies. 

Marquee, Cinemark, and the Cinema at Camp Landing are listed as participating in the Ashland/Huntington area. In Charleston, Park Place Stadium, Marquee Southridge and Regal Nitro are on board. 

Selections include a re-release of SpiderMan No Way Home, The Invitation, Minions, Thor Love and Thunder, and Where the Crawdad's Sing, and others.

Organizers have also reportedly described the initiative as a trial for what could become an annual event. National Cinema Day marks the first movie-going-discount affair of this scale in the modern age, incorporating competing theater chains and independent locations.

The event also aligns with the Labor Day weekend’s release of “Spider-Man: No Way Home, The More Fun Stuff Version,” an extended edition of last holiday season’s Marvel mega-hit,
