Going to the movies is a fun adventure, but it can also take a big cut from your entertainment budget.
That’s why bargain hunters are always “so dramatic” about saving money at the box office. It’s an essential part of the plot on how to go to the movies on the cheap.
And loyalty pays off, especially for frugal film fanatics at AMC Theatres.
Every Tuesday, the theater chain offers Discount Tuesdays to all of its loyalty members, including AMC Stubs A-List, Stubs Premiere and Stubs Insider. Price varies by location.
Note: From July 1 to Oct. 25, tickets are just $5 on Discount Tuesdays.
The discount applies to any Tuesday showtime, even if you purchase tickets in advance. Special events are excluded. Surcharges will apply to premium format experiences, including Dolby Cinema, IMAX, PRIME, RealD 3D and D-Box. However, advance purchases made on Tuesdays for any other day of the week are not eligible for the savings.
Membership is FREE for the basic loyalty program, AMC Stubs Insider.
In many cases, the savings are more than 50% off the regular ticket price, especially for evening show times.
The offer is available at the box office and online. Just be sure to present your membership card or log in into your account first.
Bargain hunters can also save money at the concession stand every Tuesday. Pair a Cameo-size popcorn with a 21-oz. ICEE or Cameo-size Coca-Cola Freestyle drink for just $5 on Discount Tuesdays.
