When was the last time you went to a movie theatre?

Personally, it's been a little over a year since I decided to go see a movie when it was in theatres, and that was to see the 3rd Guardians of the Galaxy film.

It's one of my favorite trilogies.

That being said, I was shocked when my wife and I bought our tickets, a small popcorn, and a small soda and ended up spending a little over fifty dollars for the two of us.

It was eye-opening, especially considering back in high school, twenty bucks was enough to get you a movie ticket and a snack at the theatre.

Movie Theatres Do Offer Cheaper Movie Nights For Customers

It's true, a lot of theatres do $5 movie nights during the week as a way to bring in some more customers who typically wouldn't go to the theatres.

The popcorn is still full price but you can still take the whole family to see a movie for about $20 bucks if you sneak in your own snacks.

Not that I'm saying you should do that of course!

For five dollars AMC theatres are screening new movies but there's a catch; you don't actually know what movie you're seeing until you get to the theatre.

You'll know the film's rating ahead of time but the movie itself is a surprise.

This seems like such a fun way to experience a movie, especially for a date night or something fun and different to do on the weekend.

It looks like the last showing was November 6th, but be sure to keep a look out on the AMC website to see when they're doing this again in the future.
