Go less often to the theater

One of the easiest ways to cut your movie-going costs is to simply stay home.

"I'm not sure that going to the movies holds the same allure it used to, especially from my frugal perspective," Ingram says.

If your children complain about not going to the theater, try to recreate the cinema excitement inside your own home.

"Give them incentive of letting them invite friends over," says Ingram, whose daughter recently had 10 friends over to watch on-demand movies.

Of course, there are ways to cut the cost of movies in your home. Services like Netflix and Blockbuster let you rent an unlimited number of movies per month for a set fee. Knerl subscribes to Netflix, which allows her to watch any Starz movie online.
