Movie ticket prices may keep rising and rising, but it's getting easier than ever to find discounts so there's no reason to ever pay full price for a ticket. Our favorite way to save: buy movie passes instead of movie tickets. Movie passes are sold at a discount, so you'll pay $6-$8 per pass instead of $9-$11 for a ticket.
Each theater has different rules on their passes, but generally they are valid for any movie and have a lenient expiration date (if any). Some passes exclude the newest releases (usually movies in their first 2 weeks of a run) but might give you the option of upgrading the pass (for a $1-2 charge) so that you can use it on those as well. You'll probably also have to pay an upgrade fee for 3D or IMAX shows too.
What are the best places to buy movie passes?
We recommend buying enough passes so you'll always have a few on hand when you're ready to hit the movies, but don't use them without first checking your alternatives. Other discounts--such as matinee prices, tie-in promotions for free tickets, movie rewards, etc.--may give you an even better deal. When that's the case, save the passes for the next trip (and each trip after that!).
