How Much is a Movie Ticket?

In 2024, the average price of a movie ticket is around $10.78 (no change since 2023), but the cost of your movie tickets will vary by theater, as well as whether or not you’re buying tickets to a “special” version of the film, like in IMAX or 3D.

But remember, when you use Fetch, you can get movie tickets for free simply by redeeming your points for a gift card to AMC, Atom, Fandango, or Regal!

How Far in Advance Can You Buy Movie Tickets?

How far in advance you can buy tickets to a movie depends on how long the movie is actually being screened in theaters, and that can vary based on the expected popularity of the film. In 2023, the average duration for movies shown in the theater was more than 40 days, so roughly anywhere from 5-7 weeks.

In short, for the average film, you may be able to buy tickets up to a month or more in advance, but this will depend on the theater and the specific movie you’re wanting to see.

Let’s All Go to the Movies

The popcorn is hot, the drinks are ice cold, and the movie tickets are free…but only if you have Fetch. Download the app today, start earning points, and plan for a trip to the movies as a part of a Fetch-funded date night or your next family outing on your summer bucket list.
