How To Save At The Box Office

Why pay $10 to see a movie when you can save up to 50% by purchasing several tickets at once? Several clubs and organizations offer significant discounts to consumers willing to buy a book of tickets:

AAA: AAA members can save up to 40% by buying a book of tickets from AAA’s website.
Warehouse Clubs: Sam’s Club and Costco both sell books of tickets at discount rates.
Loyalty Programs: It never hurts to nicely introduce yourself to your local theater manager and ask if regular patrons are eligible for discount programs or club cards.

The savings gleaned from buying tickets en masse might even help you stomach the cost of a $7 bucket of popcorn.
