Discount tickets to Fathom Events
What are Fathom Events?
Fathom Events are special screenings at AMC, Cinemark and Regal Theaters. Fathom Events offers limited showings of “TCM Big Screen Classics” (such as the 75th Anniversary screening of Casablanca last Dec.) and live events (such as Metropolitan Opera performances) as well as other events. The TCM Big Screen Classics and Met Opera performance screenings are during non-peak times usually on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Fathom events is co-owned by Fathom Events, AMC Entertainment, Cinemark Holdings, and Regal Entertainment Group.
Use AMC discount passes for movies
I used to use AMC Gold Passes that cost $8.50 to get into some Fathom events for a savings of $5.50. Gold passes are now discontinued.
Use AMC discount Yellow passes for movies Save 3.6%
I recently used a Yellow pass to purchase a ticket for a TCM Big Screen Classic. TCM Big Screen Classic tickets retail for $14 including tax at the box office at my local AMC. You can get AMC Yellow passes for $8.99 at Sam’s Club (Get $20 off membership here) or at Costco. You can get them for $8.50 direct from AMC. Read more about it here: Save money on Movie Tickets. In addition to the pass I was charged a surcharge of $4.48. Therefore $9+4.5= $13.50 so very little savings anymore. Oh well it was good while it lasted.
Use AMC discount Black passes for movies Save 23%
I recently used a Black pass to purchase a ticket for a TCM Big Screen Classic. TCM Big Screen Classic tickets retail for $14 including tax at the box office at my local AMC. You can get AMC Black passes for $10.74 each (two for $21.48) at Sam’s Club (Get $20 off Sam’s Club membership here) or at Costco. You can get them for $8.50 direct from AMC. Read more about it here: Save money on Movie Tickets. This time, with the black pass, there was no surcharge. So I saved $3.26 or about 23%. It’s better than nothing!
Regal and Cinemark passes
I do not have access to these passes to try them but it seems logical that they would be accepted if AMC passes are allowed. I’ve contacted Fathom Events multiple times and received no response. If anyone has tried to use these passes at a Fathom event can you report back the results? Thanks!
No passes for more expensive events
Tickets for live performances such as the Met Opera are around $27. Fathom does not accept any AMC passes and presumably any other passes.
