Saving Money on the Movies

Of course the best way to save money is to not go. But for those of you who can't wait for it to come out on video, here are some places to get discounted tickets. When I lived in NYC, I couldn't believe it was $10 to buy a ticket (it was $7-$8 in the Bay Area). That weaned me off being the first to see movies. Some of these tickets have special restrictions, like the money can't be too new.

1. Work - at my brother-in-law's company they will sell you discounted tickets
2. School - if you're a student in college, there is sometimes a student life center that will sell discounted tickets.
3. Working Advantage or Student Advantage have discounted tickets. Be careful of shipping! I'm not sure if your company has to pay in order for you to participate in the program
4. The Entertainment book. Get a copy for half off and half price shipping here.
5. From Costco. Not sure if other discount wholesalers have movie tickets, but it's worth a try.

Any one else know of a good place to get discounted movie tickets?
