Deal Alert! Go To The Movies For Only $1 Ticket

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX House of Brokers

My clients and friends know I specialize in finding the best deals out there. Not only in real estate but in every aspect of my life. I got this way because before getting into real estate I really hated my job and I would think "how many hours do I have to work to get this item and is it worth it?". Now I love my career but the mindset just stuck with me. I thought I would start sharing some of the ways my husband and I make our money go further to get us closer to our goal of early retirement and financial freedom. 

One of the ways we save money is by going to the Palace Theater. It is located in Chesterfield Village in southwest Springfield. They are usually a month or two behind the release dates of the regular theaters but if you get in the habit of not going to the regular theater then you will always have something to watch and your savings account will thank you. Ticket prices are $3 which is much cheaper than the regular movie theater but we have recently discovered Timewarp Tuesdays. Right now on Tuesdays ticket prices "timewarp" back to the price they were when The Palace first opened. As long as they keep the promotion going all day Tuesdays tickets are only $1 for any show. Click the link above to go to their website where you can view show times. They only accept cash and Tuesday evenings and weekends get pretty busy so arrive at least 15 min beforehand.

Keep watching my blog for more money saving posts.

I was just telling my wife how  miss the old theater that we used to have here in Myrtle Beach, SC that was like you describe. Now you can't go anywhere around here for less than $8.50. You will get to go 8 times to my one:( have fun :)

Sounds like a great deal!  I wish they would do something like that out my way.  They'd have a line a block long.

Jani, lets hope this catches on in more markets.  I don't get out to see many movies, $9.00 per ticket, $10.50 for popcorn & soda and that's just for one.  I'd gladly wait a few weeks or months to catch a decent movie in the theater rather than wait for the video to be released.

This is a great thing -- bet they fill up the place at that price --- in this economy people need this.

Sounds great to me --- we have a place similar here that is about $3 --- but it is a 45 minute drive!! Ugh!

Thanks for the comments. Maybe you should check into opening one yourselves! The thought has crossed my mind about opening one in a neighboring city.
