$5 Movies on Tuesdays

The Rundown

What: $5 Movie Tickets
When: All Day Tuesdays
Where: Cinemark in Newport News City Center (11810 Fountain Way Suite J, Newport News, VA 23606) and AMC in Hampton (1 Towne Centre Way, Hampton, VA 23666)

 

Every Tuesday, Cinemark Movie Theater in Newport News’ City Center and AMC Movie Theater in Hampton offer $5 standard movie tickets all day and night (3D, IMAX, and other special theaters have upcharges).

Both offer reserved seating, luxury recliners, and bars with drinks you can take into the theater. However, I prefer Cinemark for two reasons:

  1. Cinemark doesn’t require you to be a member to buy $5 tickets. For AMC, you’ll need to be an “AMC Stubs Insider” member; it’s free, but still an extra step.
  2. Cinemark allows you to bring food and drinks from its two neighboring restaurants (MyPi Pizza and Neo Kitchen & Bar) into the theater to enjoy during your movie, which allows for a better variety of options and pricing. Depending on your show time, you can get any specialty pizza at MyPi for just $6! If you’re in the mood for drinks, the theater lobby shares a space with Neo. You’ll always find moviegoers killing time before their showing at the bar. My favorite Neo combo is a beer flight and calamari, although it’s not the easiest thing to transport.

Now, one thing that AMC does have going for it is its close proximity to Dollar Tree in the same plaza. You know what I’m getting at here, people.

No matter which theater you choose, it’s a great deal given that evening movie ticket prices have reached doubled digits.  So the next time you see a good movie trailer and want an affordable date night, family night, or night out with friends, plan for Tuesday!

The Rundown

What: $2.22 Bowling Games and Shoes, Rotating $2.22 Food and Drink Specials
When: 8pm to Close Tuesdays (Drink Specials until 9pm Only)
Where: 4200 George Washington Memorial Hwy, Yorktown, VA 23692

If you’re ever bored and broke on a Tuesday night (or if you just think bowling is a blast like me), AMF’s got you covered. When the clock strikes 8pm, “$2.22 Tuesday” begins. That means $2.22 bowling shoes and games!

AMF’s $2.22 Tuesday also features rotating specials on food and drinks. When I went a few weeks ago, it was $2.22 pizza and PBR tall boys. The pizza was no MyPi, but pretty good for alley food! As of writing this, it’s $2.22 tacos, PBR, and long islands! You can always check out the current special on their website.

The deal on alcohol end at 9pm, so I recommend getting there early. The food, games, and shoes stay on special until close.  Side note: they’re not on special, but their Wild Style Fries (AKA fries smothered in multiple cheeses, bacon, and sour cream) are amazing and worth the full price.

It’s even more of a steal if you have your own bowling shoes like me. (No, I’m not good at bowling, but why pay for shoe rentals when you can have your own pair for $30?) Can’t beat a $4 night out.
