Moviegoers can expect a surprise at the box office with $3 tickets on Saturday to celebrate National Cinema Day.

On Sept. 3, thousands of theaters across the country will participate in the event by selling tickets at a fraction of their regular price, like AMC where an average adult ticket can cost $16.50, but will only cost $3 on Saturday. 

Several blockbuster movies are showing on the big screen this Labor Day weekend including "Top Gun," "Spider-Man: No Way Home," "Minions: The Rise of Gru," "Jaws," "Orphan First Kill," "Elvis" and more.
