National Cinema Day Returns With Cumbrian Venues Taking Part

Cumbrian Cinemas will be taking part in National Cinema Day with a variety of films on show.

Taking place on Saturday September 3 the aim of National Cinema Day is to celebrate cinema with ticket prices around the country are being slashed.

Big chains such as Odeon, Vue and Cineworld will all be participating in National Cinema Day as well as some smaller independent Cinemas.

Around 600 Cinemas around the U.K. will be participating in the event.

The initiative has been developed by Cinema First and is supported by the Film Distributors’ Association and the U.K. Cinema Association.

Iain Jacob, Chair of Cinema First, said: “There seems no better time than now to celebrate UK cinema-going, one of the nation’s favourites 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.”

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 celebrate the unique big screen experience once again with friends and family.

All tickets will be £3 in the participating Cinemas including those in IMAX, 3D, and other formats.

Some cinemas will be showing older movies as well as new releases and the biggest movies of 2022 so far.
