If you have yet to experience the "Barbenheimer" phenomenon, you'll have a great opportunity coming up on Sunday, August 27. According to Dakota News Now, it's the 2nd Annual National Cinema Day and theaters all across the country will be celebrating the end of the summer by selling movie tickets for just $4.

Last year, over 8 million people went to movies on the first National Cinema Day which was organized by The Cinema Foundation, the non-profit affiliate of the National Association of Theater Owners.

More than 3,000 theaters participated and even with the discounted price of what was then $3, theaters raked in 8% more than the previous same-day sales. It was a great day for the movies and moviegoers alike.

So mark this Sunday, August 27, down on your calendar as National Cinema Day, and get out to a movie in Sioux Falls for only four bucks! Besides, is there anything tastier than movie theater popcorn with lots of butter?

Here Are The 7 Remaining Drive-In Theaters In South Dakota

If you were born last century...you know, in the nineteen hundreds (ugh)...you may have spent a summer evening in the car watching movies. I don't mean on your phone, I mean at the drive-in movie theater!

If you were in Sioux Falls in the 1970s and '80's you may remember seeing Jaws and Indiana Jones at The East Park or the Starlite Drive-In. Both drive-ins opened just after World War 2. The East Park didn't make it out of the '70s, closing in 1978. The Starlite survived long enough to see the birth of home video, closing in 1985.

Drive-in movies had a bit of a resurgence during the pandemic. They were a way to go out and do something social without getting out of your car.

If you tried one during that time, or you remember the fun of a warm summer evening watching movies on that giant screen there are still places in South Dakota and around Sioux Falls you can do it.
