When it comes to seeing a movie on the cheap, you’ve got quite a few options:
- Track down your local dollar theatre. Ours is closer to $2 these days, but once a week, they drop the price to $0.75/ticket.
- Check your chains for their cheap seat times. As always, details & participation vary by location. That said, I’ve seen deals to save 50% at AMC Theatres before noon & Value Days tickets at Regal.
- Prefer to buy discount tickets so that you have more flexibility when you go? You can often find AMC Gold Experience four-ticket packs on Goldstar, dropping your ticket price to about $7.50 each. Once you sign up for Goldstar (it’s free to sigh up), search the site for AMC to see if it’s available. The tickets can be redeemed nationwide.
- To save on concessions, follow Regal Entertainment Group on Facebook. During certain times of the year, they distribute weekly coupons for things like $1 popcorn or $2 nachos. And if you join the Regal Crown Club, you can get earn points for free concessions & tickets + take advantage of $2 candy & popcorn days. AMC’s Stubs rewards program will cost you a bit to signup, but you can rack up points to earn free concessions & tickets. And they periodically offer in-theatre membership deals that’ll save you 50% when you join AMC Stubs. During Carmike’s Super Stimulus Tuesdays, you can snag $1 popcorn, $1 drinks, & more.
- Worth noting: In February, AMC & Regal Theatres tend to host a Best Picture Showcase. You can marathon-watch the Best Picture nominees on the cheap + save on concessions while you’re there.
