To get a discount on newly released movies, go to a matinee performance, join a price club, sign up for theater newsletters and loyalty programs or buy movie tickets in bulk. Many theaters also offer discounts to seniors and students.
Matinee screenings are often cheaper than evening showings, which makes them good money saving options for people who have time in the afternoons. Many membership retailers such as Costco or Sam's Club offer discounts on movie theater tickets. Members can usually find these at the store's service desk. Theaters often offer their own discounts through loyalty programs, which reward members for frequent visits. Singing up for newsletters or following theaters on social media offer customers information on cheap days, promotions and coupons.
There are several ways to buy movie theater tickets in bulk. Customers can often arrange their own bulk purchases through community groups, work or homeowners associations. They can also take advantage of bulk prices by scouting out tickets on group buy sites like Groupon or LivingSocial.
