At a time when everything is more expensive, finding a great deal is more important than ever. Enter AMC Discount Tuesdays (also known as AMC Tuesdays), where for around $5, you can relax in a comfy reclining seat and watch the latest movie with your friends and family (or my fave: a solo movie date!).

With free streaming services or subscriptions like Netflix, Hulu, and Prime Video dominating the film industry, this AMC deal is changing the game. I mean, seriously, the movie deal costs less than your daily latte.

So who’s eligible for the deal and how do you get the most value? I did a deep dive into the program to help you save the most money possible on your next trip to the movies. Read on to get the full rundown of AMC’s Discount Tuesdays.

What is AMC’s Discount Tuesdays?

AMC Discount Tuesdays are, as the name implies, a way to get movie tickets for just $5 plus tax on Tuesdays. The program used to only run at participating AMC movie theater locations, but has expanded to cover any and all AMC locations.

And this deal isn’t just for matinee or early bird showings. A typical matinee showtime is often in the early afternoon. But with AMC Discount Tuesdays, you can see any movie at any showtime, including nighttime.

TIP: To save the most money, opt for a nighttime showtime on Discount Tuesdays since those tickets are more expensive.


How can I sign up for AMC’s Discount Tuesday?

Discount Tuesdays are offered to all of AMC’s loyalty members, including AMC Stubs A-List, Stubs Premiere, and Stubs Insider. These movie theater subscription plans are totally free to join and come with a lot of great benefits. Aside from guaranteed Discount Tuesdays prices, you can also enjoy a free refill on the purchase of a large popcorn, receive birthday rewards every year, and get waived online ticket fees when you purchase four or more tickets.


What showings are included in AMC’s Discount Tuesdays?

The discount applies to any Tuesday showtime when you buy at the theater or in advance online. Any base ticket fee is eligible for the discount, but keep in mind that extra charges will apply to any premium format experiences, including Dolby Cinema, IMAX, PRIME, RealD 3D, and D-Box.

Are there any hidden fees or exclusions?

Aside from taxes and additional fees which vary by theater, no. Discount tickets can only be used for Tuesday showings. So if you buy a ticket on a Tuesday, but the showing is actually on a different day, you won’t get the discount. Sorry, but there’s no infinite $5 movie hack.

Another caveat is that special events are not eligible. AMC’s special events include fan events, private screenings, movie marathons, double features, Fathom Events, sporting events, Dreamscape at AMC experiences, and anything priced above the standard ticket price.


Where can you buy tickets for AMC Discount Tuesdays?

Discount Tuesdays tickets are available anywhere AMC tickets are sold. You can buy discounted tickets at any participating theater box office, on the AMC website or app, and on third-party ticketing sites like Fandango and Atom Tickets. Keep in mind that to get the discount, you have to be logged into your AMC Stubs Insider account and/or present your member ID. This can be done with a virtual card, physical card, account number, or login email address.
