Get the Kid-Size Popcorn, Even If You're Seeing a Grown-Up Movie: $6
You're not the only one who's annoyed with the cost of movie theater snacks: Earlier this year, a Michigan man filed a class-action suit against his local AMC theater because he was so fed up with paying $8 for Goobers and a Coke. Although coupons are hard to come by (concessions are where theaters make most of their money), and sneaking in your own food isn't technically allowed, you can save some cash by ordering off the kids' menu. A small popcorn and small soda at a chain theater we called in Indianapolis cost $12, while a kid-size popcorn and soda there are only $6—and you get a package of gummy candy too.
