How Much Does a Matinee Movie Ticket Cost?

A matinee movie has been a great money saver for those who don’t want to pay the high prices of an evening movie.  Seeing a movie on a weekday afternoon when the theater isn’t busy is known as a matinee.  Matinee movie tickets cost less than the standard ticket prices, and the movie theaters do this as a way to attract moviegoers to watch the movie during off-peak hours, usually during the afternoon.
