Tricks to getting discounts at the Movies

In these tough economic times, I thought I would share some tricks I found to getting discounts and free tickets / concessions at the different theaters in the area. And don't forget, all of the theaters generally offer matinee discounts for movies before 5:00 or 6:00PM

INDIE FILM THEATERS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Carolina Theatre - Durham - http://www.carolinath...­

When you purchase a ticket ask for a stamp card at the box office. Then show your card every time you purchase a ticket for a stamp. After 4 stamps you will get your 5th movie free!

Becoming a member of the theater (min $100) you also get member discounted rates on all shows at the Carolina, free popcorn, priority seating and other perks. So if you go to the Carolina a lot, it might be worth the investment.

Organizers: If you have a large group going to an event, The Carolina allows organizers of the Indie group to coordinate group discounts ahead of time (generally $6.25 tickets). You generally have to have more than 10 people attending. Call and talk with the box office manager for details.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Chelsea - Chapel Hill - http://www.thechelsea...­

The Chelsea offers a $1.00 discount on movie tickets on Tuesday Nights.

The Galaxy - Cary - http://www.mygalaxyci...­

The Galaxy offers a $2.00 discount on movies tickets on Tuesday nights.

They also occasionally offer online coupons here: http://www.mygalaxyci...­ (check dates to make sure they haven't expired)

The Galaxy also has a membership program http://www.mygalaxyci...­
It costs either $30 or $40 and will get you $5.00 tickets for all movies, Two FREE movie passes, concessions coupons. Also check their website's coupon page for a $5.00 off memberships coupon.

The galaxy used to offer organizers the option to get group discounts but recently have been very difficult to get a hold of an very unresponsive (or would forget to tell the staff you had arranged the discount). I would try the Carolina if you are wanting to try and get group discount tickets.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Varsity - Chapel Hill - http://www.mygalaxyci...­

Tickets at the Varsity are always $4.00, but they also offer a Multi-pack card that for $20 will get you a punch card for 6 movies.

If you sign up for the email newsletter, you will also get a coupon for a free small popcorn (and they use real butter!)


TRADITIONAL MOVIE THEATERS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Regal Movie Theaters (Brier Creek, North Hill, Beaver Creek, Timberlyne, Crossroads, White Oak)
http://www.regmovies....­

If you join their Crown Club (you can sign up online), you earn points for each ticket and concessions purchase towards free movies and concessions.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SouthPoint Cinemas - http://www.stonetheat...­

SouthPoint has a loyalty program and you can ask for a card at the ticket window (and can register it online to check points values, etc.). You can earn points towards free movies and you get a free ticket on your birthday.

Also, if you click on the banner at the top of the page and sign up for their email newsletter, you will get a coupon for a free small popcorn.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Carmike Cinemas (Wynnsong 15, Blue Ridge 14, Park Place 16, Carmike 15) - http://www.carmike.co...­

On Tuesdays Carmike offers $1.00 popcorn, $1.00 drink and $2.50 candy as well as $5.00 off certain combos.

Carmike also has a rewards program and you can pick up a card at the box office. It allows you to earn points towards free tickets and concessions.

Also, if you have the Entertainment Guide, they include 14 coupons to Regal Theaters to get $2.00 off an adult admission (you can use each coupon for up to two ticket discounts).

These are good at Brier Creek, North Hill, Beaver Creek, Timberlyne, Crossroads, White Oak.
