"After this summer's record-breaking return to cinemas, we wanted to do something to celebrate moviegoing," said The Cinema Foundation President, Jackie Brenneman. "We're doing it by offering a 'thank you' to the moviegoers that made this summer happen, and by offering an extra enticement for those who haven't made it back yet."
