CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Theaters across Wyoming (including in Cheyenne) will be offering a low-cost opportunity for patrons to check out the newest films at their venues.
The Capitol Cinema and Club 21 venues at 3410 Concord Road in Cheyenne will feature $3 admission all day Saturday for all of their showings as part of National Cinema Day, a nationwide effort kickstarted by The Cinema Foundation nonprofit to thank moviegoers for strong turnouts in 2021 following the logistical challenges presented by the original onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cheyenne’s theater — which is participating in National Cinema Day along with theaters in Casper, Laramie, Rock Springs and Green River — will show 15 different films Saturday, with a full list of showtimes for the day available on the WyoMovies website.
“You know, three bucks, you can’t beat it,” Capitol City Stadium Cinemas co-owner Rob Berger said. “I wish I could do it all the time. … We’re very excited, we’re already seeing pre-sales pretty good. People are seeing it and every little bit helps.”
More than 3,000 movie theaters and 30,000 screens in total across America are participating in the promotion, per a Cinema Foundation press release.
“After this summer’s record-breaking return to cinemas, we wanted to do something to celebrate moviegoing,” Cinema Foundation president Jackie Brenneman said in the release. “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.”
