Showcase is Offering A Free Small Popcorn For Ticket Holders & Guests Attending Private Screenings At All Open Theater Locations in MA, NY, OH and RI

NORWOOD, Mass., Jan. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Showcase Cinemas, a world leader in the motion picture exhibition industry, is supporting National Popcorn Day on Tuesday, January 19th, by offering one free small popcorn to ticket holders and private screening attendees at all of its open locations in Massachusetts, New York State, Ohio and Rhode Island. Additionally, Showcase Cinemas is offering a special $5 National Popcorn Day deal on a limited-edition Wonder Woman 1984 170 oz souvenir tub.

Making the deal even better for those missing "movie popcorn" during the pandemic, National Popcorn Day this year falls on a Tuesday, meaning moviegoers will also enjoy great deals on ticket prices with Showcase Cinemas' Bargain Tuesdays. It's the perfect time to ditch the couch and watch recent releases including Wonder Woman 1984, Monster Hunter and News of the World on the big screen. Members of Showcase's Starpass loyalty program may purchase tickets at an even more reduced Bargain Tuesday price. Registering for Starpass is free and easy, and members earn a 10% reward on virtually all purchases. Starpass is available at all Showcase Cinemas locations; Bargain Tuesday pricing is available at all locations excluding Showcase SuperLux in Chestnut Hill, MA.

Moviegoers will also enjoy free popcorn when they attend a private screening at Showcase Cinemas on National Popcorn Day. Customers may reserve a private screening for up to 20 guests, starting at just $99 for "Bring Back" films and $199 for new releases at participating Showcase Cinemas locations; at Showcase SuperLux, "Bring Back" pricing starts at $199 with new releases starting at $299. Private screenings must be booked a minimum of three business days in advance.

"We know many of our customers have missed movie popcorn during the pandemic, that's why we want to support National Popcorn Day with free freshly-popped, buttery popcorn and the opportunity to watch a movie like Wonder Woman 1984 the way it was meant to be seen: on the big screen," said Mark Malinowski, Vice President of Global Marketing. "National Popcorn Day is one of our favorite holidays at Showcase Cinemas, and with this year coinciding with Bargain Tuesday, it's an opportunity to get out, off the sofa and enjoy a fun, safe and affordable day at the movies."
