Movie fans in Spain will be able to snap up tickets for just €2.90 ($3.60) in over 2,500 cinemas from Monday to Wednesday as part of a promotional festival organized by the Spanish Federation of Cinemas.

Moviegoers will need to register at the Fiesta Del Cine website to gain access to the discounted seats. A single email address can be used for up to ten people to get accreditation that can be printed or stored on their smartphones.

To purchase tickets at the reduced price, the accreditation much be shown together with a form of ID. Tickets can also be purchased through the Fiesta del Cine website. People aged over 60 and under 14 do not need to register to receive discounts during the three-day promotion.

During the previous Fiesta del Cine, held in April this year, 1,842,444 people took advantage of the promotion to enjoy films including Spanish smash hit 'Ocho Apellidos Vascos' (Eight Basque Surnames) and the superhero blockbuster 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', according to Spanish daily 20 Minutos.

Thanks to the federation's spring promotion, attendances were  206 per cent higher than during the same three days in 2013.

Attractions this autumn include a 'Sing-Along' version of Disney's 'Frozen' and the fifth chapter in the Spanish cop spoof, 'Torrente'.
