5 Tricks to Help You Save at the Movie Theater

movies 2

Are you planning to go to the movies? Between the admission cost and the price of snacks, it can make for an expensive evening. The following frugal tricks will help you spend less and stretch your entertainment budget…


The earlier, the better. If you don’t mind going to the movies a little earlier than most people, you could save up to 25% for a matinee movie ticket. Even if you only go to the movies once or twice a month, you could save nearly $60 per person annually. Most theaters offer these slight discounts before 6 p.m. on weekdays and before 4 p.m. on weekends. Another reason to opt for the matinee? You probably won’t have to fight for the best seats!



Use your Visa Platinum points. Don’t let your hard-earned points go to waste! You earn one point for each $1 you charge on your SeaComm VISA Platinum with our ScoreCard Program. Use your points to purchase movie and live event tickets, quality merchandise, or even airline and travel services. You can even redeem your points for cash back to help pay for your movie theater admission! Click here to learn more or call us at (800) 764-0566 to start your application.



Skip the 3D and IMAX. Before you pay the premium price for an enhanced showing…decide for yourself if the film is really worth seeing in the 3D or IMAX format. Most films are just as good (and a fraction of the price) when you enjoy them in 2D!



Share the snacks. Instead of buying separate snacks, it’s cheaper to buy larger quantities and share! For example, the price of two small popcorns is typically more expensive than one medium popcorn. If you each prefer to have your own individual portions, bring several brown paper bags and divide your medium or large popcorn.
