National Cinema Day is taking place this week on Saturday 3 September, and will see hundreds of cinemas across the UK coming together to celebrate the big screen experience with discounted tickets.

Over 550 venues have signed up to participate in the event, including all of the major UK cinema operators and a wide range of smaller cinema operators and venues. Participating sites are offering tickets to all screenings from just £3, making it the perfect opportunity to support your local cinema and catch some of the fantastic films that are showing.

As well as current releases like sci-fi thriller Nope and colourful animation DC League of Superpets, many cinemas are also bringing much-loved classics from yesteryear back to cinemas, giving you a rare opportunity to see them on the big screen.

Cinema-going is one of the nation's favourite pastimes, and after enduring a difficult period during COVID-19 restrictions - like so many of us, and so many industries - National Cinema Day gives us the chance to once again celebrate the unique big screen experience with friends and family.

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.

While all the evidence confirms that cinema-going is amongst the most low-cost, best value-for-money leisure opportunities, we also of course recognise that there are significant impacts on household finances, brought about by the current cost of living crisis and wanted to do our bit to make a trip to the cinema even more affordable for the whole family."
