From the price of the popcorn to the cost to see the show itself, a trip to the movies can get pretty pricey; but we had some help tracking down some great bargains in the ‘Burgh from someone who spends a lot of time in local theaters!

By Carrie Moniot

As the wife of KDKA-TV movie critic, Drew Moniot (as seen on Pittsburgh Today Live’s “Drew’s Reviews”), I spend quite a bit of time in movie theaters. After many a trip to the concession stand, I decided to check out some of the bargains being offered by local theaters. These are a few deals I found around the area.

Carmike 10 Cinemas

700 Fort Couch Rd
Pittsburgh, PA 15241

At Carmike 10 Cinemas on Fort Couch Road I took advantage of Super Stimulus Tuesdays. Popcorn costs $1. You can get a drink for only $1 and candy for $2.50.

South Side Works Cinema

425 Cinema Dr
Pittsburgh, PA

Local Directory Listing

You can’t beat the price of a 32-ounce popcorn on Tuesdays at South Side Works Cinema. It’s free with a paid admission! You can upgrade that bag of popcorn to 85 ounces for just $1. On Mondays, you can shave $1 off candy and pop and all non-3D films cost $5.

AMC Loews Waterfront 22

300 Waterfront Drive
West Homestead, PA 15120
(412) 462-6384
Official Website
Local Directory Listing

Early birds can take advantage of every day ticket price savings at AMC Loews Waterfront 22 in West Homestead. Movies cost $5 Monday through Thursday before 6 p.m. and before noon Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Additional charges apply for IMAX and 3D.

Cinemark Robinson Township

2100 Settlers Ridge Center Drive
Pittsburgh, PA 15205-1445
(412) 787-1368

At participating Cinemarks, every Monday is Seniors Day. I checked out the Cinemark on Settlers Ridge Drive in Robinson Township and learned that seniors 62 and over can see a movie all day Monday for $5. Sorry, but that offer is not valid for specially priced engagements.

Since I’m still too young for Seniors Day, I had to wait a day to take advantage of Discount Tuesdays at Cinemark in Robinson. A ticket purchased for Tuesday showings costs $5.25, as long as you’re not seeing a movie in 3D or XD.

    You have to consider the clearview mall cinema in Butler. They have $3.25 tickets for movies before 6:00 and if you buy a large drink and a large popcorn you can also get one free refill for each.

    I am a senior citizen and found this article quite useful and will surely pass it on to all my senior friends. This is very informative, thanks.

    Unless they changed something back. AMC Raised their rates to 7.50 Monday Through Friday. That happended sometime around Christmas. Infact i just checked and they are still 7.50 for the times listed.

    Way to do your research first.

      Correction Monday through Thursday and Friday till Noon.

    Anybody looking for a great deal for a movie would be smart to go to Dependable Drive-In in Moon Township. 2 movies, $6.50 for an adult. Plus, you get to bring all your own goodies, without having to sneak them in! They have great snack bars, with really good meatball hoagies.

    Why isn’t the Water Works Cinema giving any discounts?
