Join the fun this Saturday, September 3

ATASCADERO — This Saturday, The Movie Experience at Colony Cinemas in Atascadero will join more than 3,000 other movie theaters around the nation in celebration of National Cinema Day by offering $3 tickets to any movie, any format, any showtime, all day long.

Join them for a lineup of the latest movies, including “3000 Years of Longing,” “Bullet Train,” and “Dragonball Super: Super Hero,” alongside returning 2022 blockbusters “Jurassic World: Dominion,” “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” and “Top Gun: Maverick,” all for just $3 each.

The special one-day event, conceived by the Cinema Foundation nonprofit organization, will also include an exclusive sneak peek of upcoming films from A24, Amazon Studios, Disney, Focus Features, Lionsgate, Neon, Paramount, Sony Picture Classics, Sony, United Artists Releasing, Universal and Warner Bros.


“After this summer’s record-breaking return to cinemas, we wanted to do something to celebrate moviegoing,” said Cinema Foundation president Jackie Brenneman in a statement. “We’re doing it by offering a ‘thank you’ to the moviegoers that made this summer happen, and by offering an extra enticement for those who haven’t made it back yet.”

Colony Cinemas, located at 6917 El Camino Real, Suite I, at the former location of Galaxy Theatres Atascadero, will be opening early at 10:15 a.m. on Saturday to accommodate extra showtimes for this special occasion. 

Tickets for the big day are available now at or at the Colony Cinemas box office. For more information, contact the Colony Cinemas management team by phone at (805) 460-6517 or by email at

Beat the summer heat and join them for a full-day celebration of cinema.
