More FREE Movie Tickets

Lots more FREE movie tickets

Minions

Best Buy just got a set of FREE movie tickets promos in. Buy specially marked packages of the Despicable Me movies, The Lorax, E.T., The Nut Job, or The Box Trolls and get a FREE movie ticket for Minions. Given my granddaughter’s (yeah that’s it, my granddaughter) love of these, I’m sure to need several tickets.

Jurassic World

Jurassic World tickets can be scored by purchasing specially marked packages of the Jurassic Park movies (natch!), Jaws, Serenity, King Kong, Incredible Hulk, Apollo 13, Lone Survivor, Lucy, Oblivion, Munich, the Bourne trilogy, Back to the Future trilogy, and Inglourious Basterds. Obviously not taking my granddaughter to this but will still need several tickets I think.

Ted 2

There is a combo deal that gives you FREE movie money for either Ted or Trainwreck. Coupons are on specially marked packages of Ted, Knocked Up, Identity Thief, Orgazmo, Wet Hot American Summer, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Change Up, Dazed and Confused, Role Models, Your Highness, and A Million Ways to Die in the West.

Target has a large number of DVDs with $5 tickets and a smaller number of Blu-Rays with $7.50 tickets for Pitch Perfect 2. Titles include Pitch Perfect, The Breakfast Club, Identity Thief, Bridesmaids, John Hughes Collection, Leap Year, Honey, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Bring It On, Blue Crush, and Mamma Mia

 

Going to the Movies on the Cheap

As if it wasn’t obvious I LOVE LOVE LOVE going to the movies. I mostly gave that up while my kids were growing up as we were quite poor and the movies are certainly an extravagance. Now the kids have moved away and we are doing better financially so I can go to the movies whenever I wish/have time.

I still can’t get over when we were poor so I am always looking for ways to make the movies cheaper. Many areas offer FREE showings pretty consistently. A good place to look is often local libraries, independent theaters, and hipper bars/breweries. The Hendersonville Film Society shows theirs at a local retirement community.

Carolina Cinemas

I know some people sneak food into the movies but I believe there’s a sort of social contract entered into when going to the movies. Yes, they charge an outrageous price for concessions but theaters make essentially no money on tickets. My beloved Carolina Cinemas puts on FREE movies every Tuesday (Film Society) and Thursday (horror) and some people still sneak in their own food and drink. This does not encourage the theater to continue to offer this and, quite frankly, is rather ungrateful of the patrons but enough of my soapbox.

FREE movie ticket offers abound. Currently, Wal-Mart has movies that have FREE tickets on them for Insurgent, Fifty Shades of Gray, and Spongebob Squarepants. Target has ones for Fifty Shades of Gray, Spongebob, Taken 3, and The Longest Ride. Vudu has an offer where you buy one of a particular set of movies from them in order to get a ticket to Insurgent. Upcoming offers include Jurassic World, Furious 7, Home, and Pitch Perfect 2.

Dealflicks

Dealflicks continues to add new theaters and offers a decent discount price, though not usually close to the percentages they advertise. Strangely my aforementioned Carolina Cinemas has stopped accepting Dealflicks and the other various movie money promotions.

Moviepass

Moviepass is for those hardcore moviegoers. They charge a monthly fee ($30-35) and you can go see a movie every day for FREE but only one you have not already seen. They currently have over 3,700 theaters signed up.

Moviepass is the opposite of how I usually go to the movies. While they allow you to go to a single movie daily, I like to group all the movies into one marathon showing and go all day. This allows me to buy just one drink for several movies. I always get the refillable large. I am not much of a popcorn eater though I always get it for my wife and daughter as they are saltaholics (I am more of a diabeetus consumer).

The Resurgence of the Divergent Insurgent

Insurgent starts in theaters on March 19th.

Insurgent

 

Insurgent (2015) – Rated PG-13

Beatrice Prior must confront her inner demons and continue her fight against a powerful alliance which threatens to tear her society apart with the help from others on her side.

Divergent Double Feature

Insurgent is obviously the sequel to last year’s Divergent. I had meant to catch that last year but somehow missed it. Lucky for me, Divergent and Insurgent are the first double feature of what I hope will be many this year (Jurassic Park, Avengers, Mad Max, Terminator, etc.). Dare I hope for a return of the original Star Wars trilogy to theaters?

Locally, Regal Biltmore Grande is offering the double feature. The double feature is Thursday, March 19th starting at 5:30 for us (your time may be slightly different). Regal Crown Club members also get a $5 medium popcorn and soda combo with ticket purchase.

Many other chains are also offering this double feature. AMC, Arclight, Drafthouse, Celebration, and Cinemark are among those featuring Divergent and Insurgent. Check your local theater for special offers.

Speaking of special offers, Vudu has a FREE ticket offer for Insurgent through 3/16. You have to purchase Step Up All In, Step Up Revolution, Now You See Me, Warm Bodies, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Impossible, Abduction, What to Expect, or The Hunger Games bundle. Prices start at $7.99.

Wal-Mart has a bunch of DVDs with FREE movie tickets to Insurgent as well. Finally, Target has tickets on some of their book copies of Insurgent but word is that those stickers are difficult to get off the books legibly.

 

FREE Movie Tickets – Dracula Untold, Fury, Penguins of Madagascar

Yay! After quite a dry spell, it looks like the FREE movie offers are coming back.

Dracula Untold

At Wal-Mart, they have an endcap of Universal horror DVDs and Blu-Rays that have $7.50 movie money for Dracula Untold. This includes classic titles such as The Complete Frankenstein Legacy Collection as well as more modern fare such as the Brendan Fraser Mummy series. It is Fandango movie money so caveat emptor.

Fury

Fandango is offering a Buy One, Get One FREE deal on Fury. You have to go to one of the theaters that supports Fandango ticketing and pay their pesky fee but still a nice deal. AMC Stubs members have the ticket fee waived.

Penguins of Madagascar

Fox is re-releasing a bunch of its animated titles on October 21st. These will have movie money for the new Penguins of Madagascar film. Titles include: Kung Fu Panda 1 & 2, Madagascar 1 & 2, Shrek, Rise of the Guardians, and Spirit: Stallion of Cimarron.

* AMC Theaters have a coupon for a $1 large popcorn if you sign up on their Facebook page.

* Closer to Christmas, Warner will be rereleasing all of their Tolkien titles with movie money for the final Hobbit movie.
