5 Ways to Save at the Movies

January 12, 2016 By · 9 Comments


Many people think that watching movies costs a lot of money but the truth is it doesn’t have to break the bank. Sure, if you plan on going to a new release at a place like Regal or Cinemark it is going to cost you. But it doesn’t have to cost the full price. In fact it’ll normally come close to $50-$80 just for a pair of you, but if you take these steps you can come out with spending very little or not go at all and still have a great movie night.  I’ve been taking my family to the movies since each one were at least two weeks of age, so everything below is from personal experience. How often do you go to the movies?

Purchase Tickets at the Box Office:

How do you typically purchase your movie tickets? If you are taking your date or kids to the movies and wanting a new release the chances are you are paying a pretty penny. Purchase tickets at the box office instead of online will help you save money. Online places like Fandango, etc charge you a convenience fee that the box office will not. Go in the morning hours when no one else is headed to the theater for a cheaper ticket price.


You know all those movie matinees are sometimes half the price of a regular ticket. Be sure to call first to find out if your movie theater does in fact offer a matinee with reduced prices, not all of them do but many have it. (I just don’t think they want to tell you about it) If you call you can also find out what other days may be lower than the normal $15 per person ticket. I found out ours had $5 matinees every day before noon and $7 Tuesday Night movies. Talk about a great deal.  Don’t forget if you are bringing your children typically a child age 3 and younger are free. Woo hoo!

Disclosure:  In exchange for this post, I’ll be receiving my own metal image to review (I can’t wait to share it with you) and share with you. I’ll update ya’ll as soon as I can. 

How many of you have a ton of photos on your computer? Are they on your walls yet? AdoramaPix helps people turn their digital photographs from abstract computer files into beautiful keepsakes designed to last a lifetime. Their contemporary metal prints capture memories in rich color and vibrant detail. I think a lovely family photo or a scene from a setting sun would look great. Can you picture that on your wall?

Because your images are infused right into the metal, and not painted on the surface, their metal prints are extremely durable. This means it won’t scratch easily and water spots won’t appear. Not only will your metal image be water and weather proof, but scratch resistant as well. You can even clean it with glass cleaner. Your memories deserve to live in true, archival luxury with AdoramaPix metal prints.
