Grab the family and head to the movies this Labor Day Weekend!
Nonprofit The Cinema Foundation announced over the weekend that Saturday, Sept. 3, will see a nationwide discount on all movie tickets in more than 3,000 theaters and 30,000 screens, according to NPR and The Hollywood Reporter. Tickets will cost $3 for every showing in all screening formats at participating locations.
The initiative is part of the first-ever National Cinema Day, and top theater chains like AMC Entertainment, Regal Cinemas and Cinemark Theatres are each participating as they hope to entice moviegoers indoors at the unofficial end of summer.
The U.S. has about 40,700 movie theater screens across the country, according to Variety; roughly 74 percent of all movie theater screens in the country will host screenings for $3 during the one-day only event.
