History of National Cinema Day
People have been enjoying watching films at cinemas for more than a century, since the first movie theaters began opening in the United States in the early 1900s. After the ability to capture moving pictures on film came about, the evolution of the cinema developed and it has been a beloved American institution for many years.
But now, with the advent of video players, DVDs and now online streaming, people simply don’t go out to the movies as often as they used to.
Founded with the intention of reminding the world how fun it is to go to the cinema, National Cinema Day has been established to bring the people back to the world of the movie theater. It is celebrated in the United States, the United Kingdom and may grow to other countries as well.
