Where to see $4 movies in Seattle on National Cinema Day

Go ahead and splurge on popcorn, too.

This is reely cool. To celebrate National Cinema Day, AMC, Regal Cinemas, and even indie theaters like West Seattle’s Admiral will drop all movie prices to $4 on Sunday, Aug. 27. That includes bigger-ticket formats like IMAX, Dolby, 4DX, and ScreenX.

If you need a sign to see “Barbie” or “Oppenheimer” — well, this is it. We scouted a few other new releases playing locally, including:

  • “The Little Mermaid” (sing-along edition)
  • “Strays”
  • “Blue Beetle”
  • “Talk to Me”

Looking for a throwback? Try the 30th anniversary “Jurassic Park” or 50th anniversary “American Graffiti” screenings. Disney’s limited run of “Beauty and the Beast” has a showing at the Tukwila AMC, and Seattle’s Regal will show the 2003 action flick “Oldboy.”

Bonus: Save room for popcorn — Regal and AMC will be serving up $4 and $5 small concession combos, respectively. You may not want to ever leave.
