You can always find cheaper options on film festivals and specialty cinemas, but the price tag is usually steep.
For the most part, festivals like Fantastic Fest in Florida, Indiegogo’s CinemaCon in Los Angeles, and the World Cinema Festival in the Netherlands all offer great deals.
For festivals like Cinémathèque in Paris, you might be lucky to find a discount on a ticket, but you might not find a great deal at all.
The big question is: What is the best way to go about getting a good deal on your next movie outing?
If you’re like me, you want to go all-in and take advantage of discounts and coupons that you may find at the front of the ticket booth.
The idea is to take advantage not only of the discount, but also to save money by taking advantage of the extras that you will likely be seeing during the movie.
You might be able to save a bit on your movie ticket by going to a more convenient theater, or you might find a bargain elsewhere.

What is a Discount Coupon?
A discount coupon is a discount that you can use to save even more money on your upcoming movie outing.
A coupon can be any promotional item that is available for purchase at your theater.
For example, if you’re going to buy a ticket for the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe film, you can simply enter a discount code and a coupon will be sent to your email inbox.
You can use coupons to get discounted tickets, merchandise, and more.
You may also see coupons at a movie theater’s merch table, or at concession stands.
You also might see a discount coupon at a theater’s merchandise kiosks, or a coupon at the entrance to a movie theatre.
Most of these coupons work the same way: you simply enter the code and you’ll be able receive a discount.
You could use a coupon to purchase tickets to a theater, merchandise at a specialty cinema, or more.
Most discount coupons are valid for up to 90 days.
If the coupon expires, you won’t receive a credit.
However, some coupons may expire after a certain period of time.

What are some of the things I need to know before I can use a Discount Coupon?
You must enter the discount code in the coupon box when you buy your ticket to get a discount!
The code must be valid at the time of purchase and cannot be used to redeem other offers.
Discount coupons are limited to one per person.
Discount codes are not valid at movie theatres or concession stands, and are not redeemable for merchandise, admission, or any other discount.
When a coupon expires it will not count towards the coupon expiration date.
Discounted tickets are nonrefundable, and cannot include any other discounts, except for the general discount coupon.
If a coupon is valid for a movie, but not valid for another, the discount will be invalidated.
The general discount coupons expire on the first day of each month.
When using a general discount, a code will be required for redeeming it.
If it is not valid, the general discounted ticket will be forfeited and no coupon will work.
If I use a general discounted coupon at theater, what happens if the theater doesn’t sell out?
If your general discounted code expires, your ticket will not be redeemable and you will not receive a refund.
However the theater can offer you another general discounted pass for $40.00, which you can redeem on a movie or on other merchandise.
What if I have a question about a movie I was unable to see?
If the theater has a special event happening during your movie, you may have to leave early.
If that is the case, ask the theater staff if they can help you get in the door.

What do I need when I get a Discount Pass?
If there is a special discount happening at your favorite movie theatre, you should check with the venue to make sure they have a discount for you.
You will need to enter the coupon code at the ticket counter and be given a pass code.
If there isn’t a discount at your local theater, check with your local distributors and theaters to make a determination.
If your theater doesn’st have a general and/or a general limited-time discount, they may be offering special discounted passes.
For other discounts you may need to check with a distributor or retailer.
Discount passes are valid from the date of purchase to the day of the movie and will expire after 90 days unless the discount expires on the date the pass is purchased.
Do I have to buy my pass in advance?
