Been a while since you’ve seen a movie in theaters, with popcorn and soda to boot? You’re not alone—moviegoing is on a continuing downward spiral—and Labor Day weekend is historically an extra-slow period as many choose to enjoy the last days of summer outdoors.
But The Cinema Foundation, a non-profit arm of the National Association of Theater Owners, is hoping $3 tickets will lure viewers back into theater seats this long weekend, and beyond. That’s the goal of “National Cinema Day,” which takes place on Saturday, Sept. 3 for one day only.
On National Cinema Day, movies will cost $3 or less, not including taxes or fees.
Here are the five San Francisco theaters participating on Saturday.
3251 20th Ave.
2550 Mission St.
135 4th St #3000
845 Market St Suite 500
1881 Post St.
