Charlotte theaters have discount days, summer deals
With inflation playing a huge role in everyone’s finances these days, Charlotte-area theaters are offering summer series and ongoing discount deals that can play a supporting role.
In addition to free loyalty rewards memberships where purchases add up to offers like a free movie ticket or popcorn, there are also paid memberships with additional savings.
For example, Charlotte’s new art house, Independent Picture House, offers annual subscriptions for $60, or $40 for seniors and free for students. Membership includes $3 off tickets and two free popcorns or sodas.
And, the world’s largest movie theater chain, AMC, has a multi-benefit paid subscription, AMC Stubs.
This includes discounted tickets with free membership with purchases that add up to free movies and concessions; a $7.50 annual First Edition subscription that waives online ticketing fees, plus free popcorn and soda upgrades; and A-List subscriptions cost $19.99 per month. This includes up to three movies per week, free online reservations, free popcorn and soda upgrades, and 10% off food and drink.
Some theaters also offer senior, student, and military discounts.
