During the pandemic, the movie industry was almost failing. However, the movies “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” were very successful and helped the industry a lot.
The Numbers website says that 2023 will be the best year for the box office since 2019.
There will be 4 movies shown on National Cinema Day in 2023.
The Cinema Foundation, which is a nonprofit part of the National Association of Theater Owners, is planning the second National Cinema Day.
The foundation announced that tickets for all showtimes, even premium format screens like IMAX and Dolby Cinema, will cost a maximum of $4.
The foundation made a website for Cinema Day that shows which theaters are taking part.
The $4 ticket price does not cover tax and convenience fees that are usually added when buying tickets online.
The cost of a movie ticket has gone up over the years. In 2023, the average price will be $10.53, while in 1995 it was only $4.35. This information comes from The Numbers website.
Movie theaters are giving discounts on snacks on Sunday. AMC has a deal for a small popcorn and drink for $5. Cinemark is offering $1 off any size popcorn, soda, or candy. Regal has a small popcorn and drink combo for $4.
