If you love movies, you won’t want to miss the National Cinema Day on October 13, when you can watch any movie for just ₹99 at more than 4000 screens across the country. This is a one-day offer that will not apply to recliners and premium formats like IMAX or 4DX, so hurry and book your tickets now.
National Cinema Day is an initiative by the Multiplex Association of India (MAI), a nationwide group of cinema operators that advocates on behalf of the cinema exhibition sector. The MAI works with regulatory bodies and industry partners nationwide to highlight opportunities, and address various challenges faced by the cinema exhibition sector.
Last year, National Cinema Day was held on September 23 and saw a record-breaking attendance of 6.5 million moviegoers, making it the highest attended day of the year. The box office collections for the day were estimated to be around Rs. 48 crore across films in various languages, with tickets priced at Rs. 75.
Some of the movies that benefited from the National Cinema Day last year were Chup: Revenge of the Artist, a mystery thriller that collected in the range of Rs. 2.75-3 crore on its first day, and Brahmastra: Part One- Shiva, a superhero flick starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt that earned Rs. 8.50 crore, making for the second highest third Friday of all time for a film in the Hindi language. Both movies had rave reviews and huge fan following, and National Cinema Day gave them a boost in their box office performance.
This year, National Cinema Day promises to be even more exciting, with a slew of new releases and old favourites to choose from. Whether you are in the mood for comedy, drama, action, romance, horror, or anything in between, you will find something to suit your taste and budget.
