11 Easy Ways You Can Save Money at the Movies

The excitement of watching the summer’s blockbuster on the silver screen, the smell of yummy, buttery popcorn and finishing the gigantic bucket in record time, right after the commercials end, make it all worth it.

Search for coupons or promo codes online, or sign up for deal websites like Groupon or Travelzoo. Follow your favorite movie theater on social media and subscribe to their promotional e-mails.

Be on the Hunt

Medium or Large?

Use your student, military and senior ID to get special markdowns. These discounts exist because the theaters want to encourage you to be there and you should definitely take advantage when they are offered.

Take Advantage of Your ID

There are many ways you can cut costs and still go see movies in the theater. If you are a big movie aficionado, make sure to budget for a movie category.
