Since the opening of the first American movie theaters in 1900, people have enjoyed watching movies at cinemas for over a century. The cinema evolved after the invention of film and has been loved by Americans for many years.
With the advent of online streaming and video players, many people don’t go to the movies as often now as they did in the past.
National Cinema Day was established with the intent of reminding the public how much fun it is to see a movie at the theater. It is currently celebrated in the United States and the United Kingdom, but may expand to other countries.
The Cinema Foundation is an arm of The National Association of Theater Owners. It has played an important role in raising awareness for National Cinema Day.
