With all the amazing streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, does it really leave a room for a theater trip? Surprisingly, a lot of people still hold cinema as the best entertainment option.
Why I still love to spend money on movie tickets
The movie theaters have transformed over the year with more comfort than we can even afford at home.
Pillows, blankets, reclining chairs and what not? From movie dining to option of watching the movie in 3D or even enjoying it at a roof-top, cinema no longer mean one closed room with a popcorn bucket only.
I remember spending the night out watching Avengers in front of a huge screen and surround sound system. Definitely, one of the best days of entertainment I have had in ages.
Imagine sitting on your reserved seat with 3D glasses in a luxurious cinema where you get served with flatbread pizza and craft beer. Who wouldn’t want to spend money on that, right? We are not talking about popcorn and candy anymore!
What to do about movie tickets before you go bankrupt?
The comfortable chairs and fancy food servings have become a norm in cinema culture now. The prices, however, have also shot up much more than any of us were willing to pay. It is a only a movie, after all!
Yes. It is just a movie. Also, it just may just be another movie you can comfortably watch at home tucked in bed. Although we all love to enjoy the upgraded perks of a movie theater, nobody wants to be broke for the rest of the month.
With such cinema halls, movies are no longer a cheap form on entertainment like they once used to be. What needed $5 only now wants you to spend $25!
But when it comes to a true movie-lover (like me!), the heart wants what it wants.
I remember standing in a long queue, outside the cinema all ready to spend the few dollars I had saved up for the movie screening. That’s when I heard about online surveys that will rewards your participation with free movie tickets and vouchers.
Here I am sharing with all of you what I learned about these surveys after that.
A number of different survey sites are willing to offer movie vouchers and gift cards in return of your services. Most of the vouchers include tickets for and cover for snacks and drinks at places including AMC, LAndmark, Cineplex, Regal And Cinemark.
You can redeem movie-related rewards in form of physical gift cards or e-voucher forms. Either way, it is a great option if you really wanted to enjoy a movie night with your friends or loved ones without any hassle of cash.
