Dinner and a Movie, or A Movie and Dinner?


I love living on a budget, but I hate the feeling of sacrifice. One of my favorite date-on-a-budget tricks is to go to the movie BEFORE dinner. With Movie prices around $9.50, the $6.50 Matinee is a great way to save $6.00 per couple without really sacrificing anything.

Well, Regal Entertainment Group has decided to burst my bubble. They’ve lowered their Matinee times to showings before 3:00 p.m., instead of the usual 6:00 p.m - thus thwarting my frugal efforts.

Fortunately Carmike Theaters still operates under the 6:00 p.m. cutoff.

Other ways to save at the box office: become a senior citizen, join the military, or go back to school. All completely worthwhile efforts to save a couple bucks twice a month.
