The date of India’s National Cinema Day celebration has been moved, as announced by the Multiplex Association of India. New date: September 23; previous: September 16.
The Multiplex Association of India (MAI) issued a statement saying, “The Multiplex Association of India (MAI) and cinemas throughout India welcome moviegoers to spend a day at the movies with a celebration entrance price of 75 to commemorate National Cinema Day.” Originally, National Cinema Day was scheduled for September 16. However, after hearing from several “stake holders,” the date was moved to September 23. More than 4,000 theatres from exhibitors like PVR, INOX, Cinepolis, Carnival, MIRA, CityPride, ASIAN, Mukta A2, Movie Time, Wave, M2K, and Delite are taking part, according to the release.
National Cinema Day aims to bring audiences of all ages together to enjoy a day at the movies in order to commemorate the successful reopening of cinemas following the pandemic. “It’s a thank you to the moviegoers who made it possible.” “National Cinema Day is also an invitation to those moviegoers who haven’t returned to a cinema near them yet,” said MAI, which was founded in 2002 under the auspices of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI).
According to MAI, India has a thriving domestic film industry and one of the sharpest recoveries in the film exhibition business. It added that the first quarter of the current fiscal year saw the release of some of the biggest domestic hits such as KGF: Chapter 2, RRR, Vikram, and Bhool Bhulaiya 2 and Hollywood hits like Doctor Strange and Top Gun: Maverick.
