You don’t have to deprive yourself of a movie theater experience if you’re on a budget. Here are a few ways to save money on movies while enjoying the big screen.
Go in the afternoon. The most classic way to save money at the movie theater is to hit the matinee show instead of the regular evening show time. Daytime showings are typically several dollars cheaper or more!
Skip the 3D and IMAX. It can be fun to see a blockbuster on a five-story-tall screen or in 3D, but not every film is better that way. Before you pay for the pricey ticket, ask your friends if seeing a particular move in 3D was worth the extra money.
Eat beforehand. If you’ve got the time, grab something to eat before you set foot in the theater. That way, you’re not overwhelmed with temptation to buy premium snacks, like nachos and hot dogs, which can be expensive.
