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!).

AMC just extended their $5 deal beyond the initial October expiration, too, so you can enjoy this cheap movie-watching experience well into the holiday season. The movie deal costs less than your daily latte and runs at select AMC theaters through the end of January. Read on to get the full rundown of AMC’s Discount Tuesdays.

What showings are included in AMC’s Discount Tuesdays?

Are there any hidden fees or exclusions?

Aside from taxes and additional fees which vary by theater, no. The savings will also vary by location, so make sure to check in advance if your local theater participates. Something else to keep in mind is that you cannot purchase discount tickets on a Tuesday or any other day of the week. Discount tickets can be used and purchased for Tuesdays only. Special events are not eligible either. AMC’s special events include fan events, private screenings, movie marathons, double features, Fathom Events, Metropolitan Opera, sporting events, select showtimes of certain foreign language films, Dreamscape at AMC experiences, and other events that are priced above the standard ticket price.
