Go to matinees

For years, theaters have offered bargain prices for matinee showings. Today, a growing number of theaters offer lower prices all day on weekdays, says Erin Huffstetler, who is in charge of the frugal living guide for About.com.

For example, AMC Theaters has a promotion called "Weekday Escape" that offers half-price tickets Monday through Thursday. Carmike Cinemas has "Stimulus Tuesday," which offers $1 popcorn, $1 drinks and $2.50 candy all day Tuesday.

"This is something that's emerging out of the recession," Huffstetler says.

In the summer, many theaters have free family movies on weekdays, Huffstetler says. Check local theater websites to find who offers these discounts, she says.
