To sweeten the deal, the big theatre chains have partnered with the nonprofit Cinema Foundation for National Cinema Day to offer $3 movie tickets on Saturday, Sept. 3. Many are also offering special deals on refreshment combos.

The Cinema Foundation said more than 3,000 theaters and more than 30,000 screens will be part of the special event. Major chains, including AMC and Regal Cinemas, are participating, as are all major film studios. In participating theaters, tickets will be no more than $3 for every showing, in every format. It hopes the event will boost sales as Labor Day weekend is traditionally slow for theaters.

  • Premiere Cinema 14 Fashion Square
  • CMX Plaza Cafe 12
  • Regal Winter Park Village & RPX
