The Boxoffice Company, the leader in global showtimes distribution and online ticketing reaching more than 75 global million movie fans, will be helping moviegoers discover new locations, new formats and new movies as part of National Cinema Day, to be celebrated in the UK on Saturday, 2 September. More than 630 venues, including all major UK cinema operators and a wide range of smaller exhibitors, are participating in the celebration of cinema-going, offering tickets from £3 for the hottest new titles, independent films and summer blockbusters in all formats throughout the day.
National Cinema Day has been developed by the cross-industry body Cinema First and supported by the Film Distributors’ Association and the UK Cinema Association. The Boxoffice Company has created the celebration’s digital presence.
Building on the stunning success and momentum of last year’s National Cinema Day, which saw almost 1.5 million admissions at cinemas across the UK, The Boxoffice Company has been working closely with Cinema First on providing access to showtimes and digital services for the one-day event, celebrating the UK’s most popular out-of-home leisure activity. The Boxoffice Company also powered the showtimes for the official site behind the American edition of National Cinema Day held this past Sunday, which saw 8.5 million U.S. moviegoers heading to the movies on the big screen last Sunday.
The Boxoffice Company represents more than 150 worldwide exhibitors with their online ticketing and digital marketing needs, powering Google, IMDb, Bing, TikTok, Apple and many others with their showtimes and ticketing capabilities.
“Given The Boxoffice Company’s long standing support for our industry, we’re delighted and hugely grateful to be able to partner with them once again this year in helping make National Cinema Day a unique celebration of UK cinema-going,” says Phil Clapp, Chief Executive of UK Cinema Association and Board member of Cinema First.
“National Cinema Day is a fantastic, impactful holiday for cinema-going, and we’re excited to help fans discover new venues, new movies and new formats at their local cinemas,” says Malcolm MacMillan, EVP of Global Exhibitor Relations for The Boxoffice Company. “We’re proud to partner with Cinema First, Film Distributors’ Association and the UK Cinema Association to help exhibitors, no matter what size the cinema chain, attract new and returning film fans and help them easily purchase tickets for National Cinema Day.”
