Mom Tips: Snacks at the Movies

You got Regal kids summer movie deals for your tickets, but what about those movie snacks? Here’s how you save money there.

Often you can’t your own snacks and drinks into a movie theater. To save on snacks, take advantage of rewards programs like Regal Crown Club where you earn points towards free concessions and tickets for every dollar you spend.

But, we know that even that can get expensive and add up. So, here are some extra mom methods for geting it done cheap.

Mom Tip #1: Bring empty sandwich bags or brown paper bags into the theater. Buy one large popcorn and put handfuls of popcorn into the empty bags, so everyone in your family gets their own bag. Often these large popcorns are refillable for free, so, you’ll definitely have enough to go around. Everyone gets their own bag, which makes them happy. And you’re happy because you’re not buying heaps of individual bags of popcorn and very likely spending nearly your entire weekly grocery budget to do it.

Mom Tip #2: Similarly, bring in empty water bottles and fill them up at a water fountain, or buy a large beverage and split it up by pouring it into those individual bottles.

Mom Tip #3: Skip the snacks all together. This can be so hard, especially with the bright neon signs and screens with rolling images of popcorn and candy. But. if you tell the kids a special treat is coming after the movie (like going out for ice cream or picking out a special box of popsicles at the store) that might just be enough to skip purchasing movie theater snacks all together.
