If you are like me, you love movies. I love the blockbusters, the under-the-radar flyers, and will even see the WTF’s any chance I get. I am a strong supporter of getting the theater loyalty cards since many of them come with some perks that pay for themselves within a few visits. I do know that one of the biggest pains in the butts for people are the ticket prices. Depending where you live in the country, a movie ticket can sour to almost $20 per person. I think that is ridiculous. I go to an AMC in Dallas in a mall that saw its glory days come and go. The AMC is fantastic and has over 16 screens of first run movies but I only pay about $6.25($8.50 for 3D) for a ticket. The reason I say this is that I kid you not, 6 miles down the road is another AMC at a different mall that is nearly $16 a pop. Same company, same concession stand, and same screen quality. It blows my mind.
I’ll get to the point of this post, I was at a comic show a couple of weeks back and I came across this interesting find for the first time that I think all those movie fans out there would really enjoy. I was going passed a woman that was giving out chances to see the movie “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” before it was released. You just had to put a code it that was on the flyer to see it. Later that day I went online (www.sonyscreenings.com), created my account, redeemed the code, and that was all it took to get my free screening tickets. The day of the event was pretty standard for anyone seeing a preview of anything. You needed to get there early (about an hour) before the show, they gave out wristbands, and they took your phones in very neat little stapled paper bags. They had a little Q&A about the film and gave out a good amount of prizes before the film. The movie was delightful and I highly recommend it, but the best part was that it was FREE!
Well about a week later I get an email notifying me that there are other films in my area that are doing early screenings. Well to make a long story short, I have now signed up for two studios early screening and they are fantastic!
The two that I use are:
