The Multiplex Association of India (MAI) has announced National Cinema Day across the nation on September 23. To celebrate this event, the MAI is offering movie tickets for only Rs 75 at all 4000+ screens of participating cinemas. Earlier, National Cinema day was decided to be celebrated on September 16, but it was postponed.
The MAI also posted about the offer on the official Twitter handle and wrote, "The Multiplex Association of India (MAI) and Cinemas across India, welcome moviegoers to spend a day at the movies with a celebratory admission price of Rs 75 to mark National Cinema Day. The National Cinema Day was previously announced to be held on 16th September. However, on request from various 'stakeholders' and to maximise participation, it will now be held on 23rd September."
Multiplexes including PVR, INOX, Cinepolis, Carnival, Miraj, Citypride, Asia, Mukta A2, Movie Time, Wave, M2K, and Delite have joined the celebrations and are offering movie tickets for movies currently running at Rs 75.

Readers must note that third-party online apps or websites might add additional fees. For instance, in addition to the Rs 75 price tag, BookMyShow can still charge extra internet costs and GST. One should also remember, the cost for the recliner will be the same and not Rs 75 on BookMyShow.
So, if you don't want to pay any additional charge, go directly to the movie theatre on Cinema Day to get the tickets. They will charge you only Rs 75.
Since only one day is left for the offer, many of the theatres are already sold out for September 23. However, we checked on various sites and even third-party apps, and there were still few tickets left. Luckily, the morning shows are still available. So, hurry up before all the shows get houseful.
