National Cinema Day is September 3rd, 2022. On that day, you'll have the chance to go to the movies at an extremely discounted rate.

The ticket prices seem too good to be true so I'm not surprised by the number of posts I've seen on social media asking if this event is real. I can confirm it is 100% legit and several Minnesota theaters are participating. Learn more about the special day below.

How Much Are Movie Tickets?

According to statista.com, the average movie ticket in 2021 was $9.57. Throw in popcorn, a drink, and candy and the average movie-goer could easily drop $20 seeing a new movie.

On National Cinema Day, you can go to the movies for much cheaper.
