“After this summer’s record-breaking return to cinemas, we wanted to do something to celebrate moviegoing,” said Cinema Foundation president Jackie Brenneman in a statement announcing the event. “We’re doing it by offering a ‘thank you’ to the moviegoers who made this summer happen, and by offering an extra enticement for those who haven’t made it back yet.”
Over 3,000 theaters and more than 30,000 screens are taking part in this promotion, as are all the major movie studios. All screenings on National Cinema Day will be preceded by a sizzle reel containing footage from upcoming films, including “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” and “Don’t Worry Darling.” A24, Amazon Studios, Disney, Focus Features, Lionsgate, Neon, Paramount, Sony Pictures Classics, Sony, United Artists Releasing, Universal, and Warner Bros. all contributed footage to the sizzle reel.
