Watching your favorite new movies in the theatre is an amazing experience especially if you are a cinephile. Every weekend new movies are getting released of different genres and categories. But going to the movies is not a cheap habit. Anyone who goes to see movies in cinema knows that movie ticket prices are always inflated. Movie theatres are notorious for overpricing tickets and stuff like the concession stand items. While we cannot help you with expensive candies, we can give you tips and advice on how to get affordable movie tickets. We will list a few ways you can see movies in cinema for free or for extremely cheap rates.

  • Free Screenings: Many times, companies plan free screenings before the official release. These free screenings are a way to market the movie so that you will talk about it online and give it free marketing. You can sign up with many free screening websites to get alerts for your favorite upcoming movies.

  • Weekdays: Since movies are released over the weekend, it makes sense for people to see it then. But if you do not have a tight work schedule and can take time out in the middle of the week, then you should consider going to see a movie on a weekday. The prices are considerably lower, and there are many deals or promotions you can take advantage of.

  • Drive-In Theatre: Movie theatres have expensive tickets, but you end up emptying your wallet since there is no other way to see a new film.

You can also enjoy the open atmosphere of a drive-in theatre while saving a lot of bucks.
