No matter what the economic situation, everyone is looking to save a buck whenever they can. That goes for movie tickets as well. One option is seeing the matinee showing of a particular film. Depending on where you live, the cost of that ticket could be between $5 -$13. I saw a matinee of a film at the AMC movie theater in Time Square in New York City two years ago and it cost $12. In Connecticut it costs $5.50. It all depends where you live.
No matter the price, matinee tickets are usually your only option for cheap movie tickets at the movie theater. If seeing matinees is not your thing or you can not attend them, there is another way. American Automobile Association aka AAA.
AAA does not just provide great road side assistance and car insurance. Your AAA Card comes with a plethora of other benefits. For the purposes of this article, the pertinent benefit is Discount Movie Tickets. AAA sells movie tickets in a booklet of 6 for under $40. Since a non-matinee movie ticket costs between $9 -$15 (depending on where you live, ouch NYC), this is a no-brainer. The next time you plan to see a movie and you have an AAA Card, consider buying your tickets through AAA at your local AAA branch office. Have you ever bought your tickets through AAA before? Would you ever consider it? When and where do you think the cheapest movie tickets are derived from?
