LAKEWOOD, NY (WNY News Now) – Theaters nationwide, including in the Jamestown area, are taking part in National Cinema Day on Saturday, offering flicks for only $3 dollars.
Dipson Theaters, who operates Lakewood Cinema 8 and the Chautauqua Mall Cinema, are taking part.
This is the first occasion of the day, with the idea for a national movie theater holiday in the works well before 2020, however the Covid-19 pandemic forced those plans to be postponed.
In addition to being a “thank you” to fans who returned to movie theaters in droves during the summer blockbuster season — Tom Cruise’s “Top Gun: Maverick”, for example, has earned the sixth highest domestic gross ever with its $692 million haul — the hope is that people who haven’t been to the movies in a few years might be tempted to visit their local theater.
