My boyfriend is a huge movie fan. Which means one of our most frequented activities when we go out is to the movies. It can cost a fortune if you frequent the movies as much as we do. I have been able to get us many free movies lately since I found gofobo.comhttp://www.gofobo.com/screenings/search
It is a website that offers free pre-screening tickets to certain movies that are being promoted. Which is pretty cool to be able to see the movie before anyone else, not to mention getting it for free. They offer movies at many different theaters nationwide. Where I live in South Florida, there are quite a few theaters within driving distance to choose from, so I have gotten several free tickets for us. When you go to the website you will need to sign up for free, and then you can search to find movies by your zipcode. Many will have enter rsvp codes, (which you can often get from the movies facebook page or website). They also have ticket drawings that you can enter, which most of the ones I’ve entered have given me free tickets. the other option is the open tickets that let you print a ticket right then and there if they haven’t reached their limit for the time and location.
I check back often as they are always putting new pre screenings up and new dates and theaters to choose from.
One thing to keep in mind, is that you must get to the theater extra early to get good seats since they over pack the theater to make sure it is full for the pre screening. Also depending on how busy the theater is or how popular the movie, expect to wait in line before they let you in the theater. We have gone to one of these movies too late and it was already full by the time we got there. But all in all it is well worth it than spending the $25 plus dollars for 2 people to see a movie.
You can’t have a movie without the popcorn, which will often cost you more than the ticket itself if you buy a drink or candy to go with it. I have made great use of our theaters promotional deals and card to save a lot of money on movies and snacks. Our favorite local theater is Regal. They have a loyalty card that you sign up for for free here or at the theater http://www.regmovies.com/Crown-Club.
The loyalty card gives you free movies, free drinks, and free popcorn based on how much you use it. We have gotten quite a lot of freebies with the card. Also many movie theaters have mobile apps that give you coupons and deals, as well as text message coupons. From Regals facebook page every Thursday you can have a mobile coupon texted to you for snacks. This weeks is $3 off nachos. Click below to sign up for these coupons.
I also have gotten snack coupons from cinemark theaters from their Facebook and website, and I am sure there are many other theaters with promotions such as these. So a little extra time will get you a very inexpensive date night!
