Use rewards programs and other discounts

Some movie chains have rewards programs that get you free or discounted tickets and concessions when you have enough points.

Leah Ingram and her family always use their Regal Cinemas rewards card because almost every local theater is a Regal. She even makes sure her kids use it when they go with their friends.

"It doesn't add up to huge savings, but I'll take savings wherever I can get them," says Ingram, author of "Suddenly Frugal: How to Live Happier and Healthier for Less."

Many retailers also offer coupon codes for free movie tickets. For example, cereal boxes or websites might offer coupon codes for free or discounted tickets or concessions.

Finally, you may be able to score discount tickets if you belong to certain organizations. AAA sells tickets to members at a discount of up to 20 percent. Meanwhile, Howard buys all of his tickets from Costco and they range from $6 to $8.
