Have you ever wondered to your self, “How can a night at the movies be so costly?” Feel about it…a family of four, 2 adults 2 kids, pay $26 for tickets, $8.00 for a significant popcorn, $4.00 for a soda, $3.50 for that candy bar, oh wait, your other kid wants a candy bar too, so that’s $7 for candy, and $4 in quarters for the vending machines whilst your waiting for the movie. I feel you get the point. Well going to the movies doesn’t have to be an expensive proposition. Now I’m not a cheapo, but I know how and where to invest my money wisely. That being said, here are a couple of ideas on the best way to save at the box office:
Bring your own popcorn! Why pay $8 for a popcorn which you end up throwing away half of anyway simply because it’s large enough to feed a small militia? Last week I went to a particular big superstore (no names however it begins with a Wal, and ends with a mart), and paid $5.00 for 24 packs of popcorn. Basically pop it within the microwave before you leave and you’ll be able to save a decent amount of cash right there.
Bring your own Soda! Much better yet, bring your own any type of drink. Given the choices at the movies, you may possibly be limited as to what it is possible to get to refresh your taste buds. Try a can of soda from another unnamed place, where the retail price per can is really a low $0.15 a can. That’s $3.85 saved on soda. Not too bad at all.
Skip the wait
The longer your children have to wait around at the theatre, the far more hyper they’ll be as well as the far more you’ll need to spend to maintain them occupied. Study shows most individuals get to the movies right before the show starts, so in the event you get there about 10 minutes just before the show, you ought to get a fantastic seat and prevent the hassle.
Do not pay at all
Why pay when you can see a free movie…A particular cinema offers totally free movies inside the summer for families, just check it out on google and sort in “free movie theatres”. Also, many organizations provide promotions where you can sit in as a movie “critic” for totally free in screen tests for movies. That’s proper, you see movies before they are even released, and it’s totally free. Once once more, go to google and type in “how to get totally free movie screening passes”. You’d be shocked how straightforward it is to get into a free movie.
When all else fails, merely rent a movie from your local store. It’s low-cost, the parking is excellent, probably the most comfortable seats in the home are your own, and there’s all of the food you’ll be able to eat there too. Oh yeah, and when you have to go to the bathroom, just click pause!
