We know frugal families are well-versed on the FREE Days at museums and attractions across the city. Therefore, rather than posting each one individually, we created a comprehensive list of all the FREE days for easy one-stop “shopping.” Most of the free days are funded, in part, by taxes collected through the Science and Cultural Facilities District. Others are funded by corporate sponsorship. We’re lucky to live in a city with so many wonderful institutions to explore without breaking the bank. However, it’s important to note that the FREE Days are very popular. (Translation: Be prepared to deal with large crowds and allow time to search for a good parking spot.) To review our page, click here. Of course, if we find a FREE Day of note because of some special attraction or exhibit, we’ll post it for you.

Loyalty pays off, especially at AMC Theatres. Every Tuesday, the movie chain offers all of its AMC Stubs members (Insider, Premiere and A-List) Discount Tuesdays — get a discounted ticket. It seems the discounted price may vary by location and/or movie, as AMC is no longer calling it “$5 Tuesdays.” However, we randomly checked showtimes and the price seems to still be $5 at most locations.
There is an upcharge for premium formats and special events. Exclusions apply. (Note: The promo is not valid on holidays.) [Read more…] about AMC Theatres: Discount Tuesdays & $5 Combo Special
