Stretch Your Dollar: How to save at the movie theater

(WTNH)– At this point in the winter, you may be running out of ways to stay out of the cold without breaking the bank on entertainment. We are stretching your dollar with a way to see a movie in the theaters every day if you want, at a low cost.

It’s the middle of winter in New England and by now you’re probably starting to get a little cabin fever. Taking the family to the movie theater is an easy escape that can get expensive but here’s a way to stretch your dollar – have you checked out MoviePass yet?

It’s a subscription service for $9.95 a month where you can watch one movie a day in the theater. That’s about 30 movies for the price of one!

It’s not new but it’s becoming more popular, recently surpassing a million subscribers. Theater’s want you to put the Netflix down and get back into theaters. They get you in the door and you’ll visit concession stands, buy popcorn and maybe surrounding businesses.

This isn’t the only deal like this. If you ask around, you’ll find some individual theaters have a similar program.

One thing to keep in mind , MoviePass is losing money in the deal. We could see the price go up in the future or other changes made if it doesn’t end up working for them, which is why it might be worth taking advantage of it now while its so inexpensive.
