The celebration of National Cinema Day, which was initially slated for September 16, has been postponed by the Multiplex Association of India (MAI). The event will take place on September 23, and that day, movie tickets will just cost Rs 75.
More than 4,000 theatres will participate in the one-day-only sale, enticing viewers to spend the entire day at the multiplex. All major theatres, including PVR, INOX, Cinépolis, and others, are participating in the promotion, and an updated banner displaying the pricing has been posted.
In order to increase participation, “several stakeholders,” according to MAI, sought the date adjustment. Although the body did not specify the cause, rumours claim that it is connected to the recent release of Brahmstra, which is now doing well and has made Rs 225 crores worldwide in its first week.
In order to express gratitude to moviegoers for supporting the theatre sector, National Cinema Day was recently established. The event debuted on September 3 in the United States and the United Kingdom, with theatres like AMC and Cinemark slashing ticket costs to $3. (About Rs 240).
Indian theatres will join the celebration later that week, and the country’s largest theatre chains will update their websites with fresh content. However, according to PVR Cinemas, the Rs 75 discount does not applicable to premium seating options like recliners or IMAX format screens.
The rule appears to apply only to Indian theatres, as the official website for National Cinema Day, which is geared toward Americans, said that all seats, regardless of format or language, will be priced the same. The Rs 75 price tag does not include additional taxes, or fees levied when purchasing from third-party online apps or websites.
In India, for example, BookMyShow may still charge additional internet fees and GST on top of the Rs 75 price tag. If you don’t want to spend the extra money, you should wait in line for your ticket.
Regarding movies, theatres will primarily show titles from Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and other Indian film industries. The upcoming National Cinema Day celebration may also include Hollywood films currently in theatres.
