I recently started working at my local Regal Theater, one of a large chain of movie theaters across the United States and possibly worldwide. After working there for the summer so far, I thought I’d take the time to share some things I’ve learned about Regal Theater (or movie theaters in general). Some of these tips may or may not apply to all theaters, or indeed, perhaps, any other theaters other than the one I work at; however, I think it’s reasonable to assume at least some of the policies work the same across several different theaters.
Buying Tickets (Box Office)
- Movie tickets are cheaper in the mornings than the evenings (at my theater, the price changes to ‘more expensive’ after 4pm), and more expensive on the weekends (Friday - Sunday). This seems fairly obvious, but a lot of people don’t know it. It’s not a huge difference in price - maybe a dollar fifty, or fifty cents - but considering how expensive movies are nowadays, why not save money?
