With blockbuster movies such as "Top Gun: Maverick" and "Thor: Love and Thunder" hitting the big screen, AMC Theatres is bringing back a pre-pandemic perk: $5 movies on Tuesdays all summer. The Discount Tuesdays program was halted when movie theaters sat empty during the height of the pandemic, but as moviegoers flock back to theaters, the chain is once again offering the deal, which runs through Oct. 25.

To get the bargain, moviegoers have to join the free AMC Stubs loyalty program. Besides discounted movies, members also get a free refill on a large popcorn and earn 20 points for every $1 spent. Members who reach 5,000 points get a $5 reward to spend on food and drinks.

For serious movie fans who are constantly at the theater, the Stubs A-List membership level was brought back in July 2021. In addition to everything the free membership offers, A-List members get admission to three movies each week for a monthly fee of $19.95 to $23.95, depending on location, as well as other perks.
