August is nearing its end, but before it comes to a close we’ve got a very important holiday to celebrate! National Cinema Day has returned and the Movie Association of Canada and America’s Cinema Foundation will treat audiences to a day of discounted admission at over 3,000 theatres across Canada.

From Cineplex and Landmark locations, films will only cost $4 (plus applicable taxes) on August 27th, 2023 – but you’ll want to snag your tickets now!

Not sure which theatres in Alberta are participating?
