What are your tips and tricks for seeing movies for less? Movie theater tickets cost between $8 to $14 in my city so I am always looking for ways to see movies for less. I often go to advance screenings for free or I go to the $2 theater. I also buy AMC Silver tickets in advance. Those tickets can be used to see movies that have been out for at least 2 weeks. It's worth the wait! They cost around $6 a pop.
