National Cinema Day will return for its second year to movie theaters nationally — and to two theaters locally — offering discounted admission to all showings on Sunday, Aug. 27.
Both the Kenai Cinema and the Orca Theater will be participating, offering tickets to all shows, regardless of showtime or format, for $4.
Shelly Endsley, who owns the Orca Theater, said in an email to the Clarion on Monday that in addition to the discounted tickets, all large popcorn will be discounted to $5. She also said that all attendees on National Cinema Day will be entered into a variety of giveaways celebrating the occasion.
A press release from Kenai Cinema parent company Coming Attractions says they’ll also offer a concessions discount on Sunday, with medium-sized popcorn and drinks available for $4 each.
Films playing at the Kenai Cinema on Sunday include “Barbie,” “Blippi’s Big Dino Adventure,” “Blue Beetle,” “Gran Turismo,” “Oppenheimer,” “Strays,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem” and “The Hill.”
Films playing at the Orca Theater on Sunday include “Blue Beetle” and “Gran Turismo.”
