Want a cheaper way to go to the movies?

Sep. 15, 2011by: Mike Sampson

Let's face it - going to the movies is an expensive proposition. Not only are ticket prices increasing but with all the premiums (3D, Imax, etc.) you can spend $18/ticket before you've even hit the concession stand. But we might just have found a way to save you a few bucks on your next ticket purchases.

While there was once a service that allowed you to get an all-you-can-watch monthly pass for theaters, they never thought to check with the theaters if that was actually OK. But Entertaina.com is actually working with theaters to bring you some discount tickets. You can get a ticket right now for only $6.60, which is a big difference over the $11 I'm normally paying. (And for $8.25 you can upgrade to a ticket that will get you into any "special engagement" showing.) You can even buy vouchers for popcorn and drinks and save some cash on snacks as well.

Right now the tickets are limited to AMC Theaters but deals with Cinemark and Century Theaters are the works and coming very soon.

If you're up for giving it a shot, they're giving JoBlo.com readers free shipping on any purchases, so you get your discount tickets just as if you were buying them from any other ticket site, except at a healthy discount! Just head to Entertaina.com and use the coupon code "joblo" to get free shipping on your order.

It's to note, we have no affiliation with this company, are receiving no kickbacks from them (be it financial or in terms of traffic) and have no financial or personal interest in the success of the program. Just something that we thought sounded cool and the more digging we did, proved to be far more legit than some other discount ticket programs....

Hmmmm might check it..

Because I go the movies every week seriously and maybe I'll go twice three times during that week.

Strange how things work differently.
I live outside the US (Brazil to be exact) and in my city all movie theaters are inside shopping centers and they do charge parking so sometimes youŕe paying as high as U$25-30 for one screening (considering parking+tickets+snacks). Now THAT sucks big time.

Really??

People actually rape their wallets at the concession stand still. I figured everyone was on the same page to bring in their own sixer and snacks for the showing.

Sucks that everything around here is Regal and the gas costs to get to the nearest AMC would kill any savings =(

I already have a cheap way to go to the movies. Go to a first showing, pay the early bird fee ($5-$6 bucks) and then theater jump. I live in Louisville, KY so we have two RAVE theaters, One Cinemark and two local theaters, so my options do not included these AMC theaters. Plus no one that works in these places care. I would love to have an Alamo Drafthouse theater in the city, but that's not happening. So, as long as the workers in a theater don't listen to my pleas about kicking a row of

Well said. That's just like here in Santa Cruz, CA. Just here in downtown SC, there's 5 theaters (2 Regal Cinemas, and 3 locally owned Indie). This isn't even including the other 5 theaters that are just outside of downtown. And Santa Cruz is a pretty small surfing community. We do however have 'The City On The Hill' (UCSC), with a boatload of movie buffs (as well as all the local movie buffs). On top of that, everyone pretty much knows someone that works at one of these theaters, and you

I guess I should feel lucky that in my immediate vicinity tickets are only about $6.50-$8.50 a pop. To get the 3-D experience means I have to go a little farther. Since I don't actually live near a movie theater, it's still a special-occasion kinda thing. And that movie better be good.

I'm all for someone trying to help us out with high movie tickets costs, and appreciate their offer whole heartedly. But it's sad to see that this is what "going to the movies" as come too. Bargin shopping for our movie tickets online in advance, and then having them shipped to us. One of the best aspects of going to the movies was ticket prices werent a big deal, and all you had to do was wait in line for a couple minutes, with a good group of friends that part was fun too.

I'm pretty sure there isn't a single movie-loving Canadian without a Scene card. :)
