Seattle Movie Ticket Prices

By Blog, Short Films

If you’re into video production, there’s a really good chance that you like watching movies. We watch them as often as we can – even the films that we aren’t so sure that we’ll like – because it’s important to know what’s out there, who’s doing what, and how they’re doing it. We believe that the best filmmakers are relentless students of their work.

Since the cost of movie tickets can add up after a while, we decided to do a little research and find out which theaters in the Seattle area have the cheapest movie ticket prices. Check out the table below to see how your favorite theater stacks up!

Every Theater is NOT Made Equal

Aside from price, don’t forget to take the experience into consideration. Sound quality, screen size, and the overall ambiance can completely change your viewing experience. Also, some bargain theaters don’t get new releases right away, and other cinemas focus exclusively on older films and independent films. We’re not saying that’s a bad thing, it just depends on what you’re looking for at the time!

Seattle Movie Ticket Prices

Keep in mind that some areas require paid parking, and theaters can change their ticket prices at any time. The prices below are the regular, adult ticket prices as of March 2017. Many theaters also have special, discount viewing days and matinee prices. If I was able to find them, those are included! Feel free to send us an email if you have additional info or updates.

Note: tables don’t always display properly on mobile devices so if you’re having trouble viewing all four columns, turn your phone/tablet sideways to landscape mode.
