If you're anything like me, you despise the price of going to the movies. $12 tickets, $10 popcorn, $5 bag of Skittles. 3D? Don't even think about it! When I first heard about FIVE dollar Tuesday I was in disbelief. You mean I don't have to wait six months to stream Mary Poppins on Netflix? Count me in!
$5 movie tickets are real. You can find five dollar tickets at these participating theaters – some you can just show up, some you have to sign up – I'll take either.
- Grand Lake Theater, Oakland >> $5 Discount Tuesday ($5 for 3D!) with no signup required. $6 matinee pricing all days. Yeehaw!
- AMC Bay Street 16, Emeryville >> $5 Ticket Tuesday. Sign up online with an email or phone number.
- Alameda Theatre >> $5.50 Discount Tuesday. Just show up! (or $9 for 3D, see what I mean?)
- Century Hilltop Richmond 16 >> $5.75 Discount Tuesday. All day, no sign up, just show up.
Now can we talk about popcorn prices? Sheesh. Don't tell anyone, but I sometimes pop and bring my own. Ha!
Prices are current as of February 2018. Please call to confirm beforehand – we don't want any disappointed friends.
