Tip: Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve both fall on a $5 Movie Tuesday this year! My family loves to make Star Wars a part of our holiday, so we grabbed up the Christmas Eve deal. It made, what is often a big splurge, into a very affordable outing for six. Better, I pre-bought our tickets during a different pay period, so we’ll be able to afford to splurge on treats this year!

And don’t forget about $6 Student Thursday featuring $6 movies and free popcorn for students and school faculty.
