Fans of the silver screen are in for a treat this weekend as cinemas across Manchester will be selling tickets to screenings for just £3.
The initiative is called National Cinema Day, which champions the magic of cinema and has been developed by the cross-industry body Cinema First and is supported by the Film Distributors’ Association and the UK Cinema Association.
All films will be available for this low price, meaning that there’s something for the whole family to enjoy.
Iain Jacob, Chair of Cinema First, says: "There seems no better time than now to celebrate UK cinema-going, one of the nation’s favourite out-of-home leisure activities.
“Coming off the back of a very strong summer for the sector and looking forward to further film highlights over the rest of the year, we wanted to give everyone a chance to enjoy the big screen experience with the film of their choice."
Many cinemas are showing a mix of recently-released films, as well as bringing back much-loved classics, most of which may not have been shown on the big screen in many years.
