Written by Brian S.

Going to the cinema to see the latest films is a popular hobby for many, although, in recent years, the price of one ticket has increased a lot. Still, we can buy tickets at cheaper prices if we take advantage of discounts and promotions that are offered occasionally by the cinema.

At ShMadrid, this is how you can get these discounts so you can go to the cinema and benefit from these promotions at lower prices.

Spectator Day

One of the best options to save money on tickets is going to the cinema on selected days in which a discount is given by just showing up on that day at that time. “Spectator Day,” as it is called, are held at most cinemas every Wednesday.

On weekends, tickets are approximately €10, whereas Spectator Day costs only €4.50, more than half off, very significant in savings. So, it is worth going to the movies on Wednesdays rather than the weekends to save that extra €5.50 for another movie to see later on.

People do come on Wednesdays for these half-off days to see any movie they like, giving it a weekend-like atmosphere. 


Some cinemas have promotions that will allow you to save on your ticket to see the movie you want. Most cinemas have screenings late at night and early morning, lowering prices considerably. One of these cinemas that does this is Yelmo, where late night screenings cost only €5.50 per person on Fridays and Saturdays at 23:00.

Another promotion, from Monday to Friday every week, tickets are just €5.20 per person until 18:00. In addition, there are several other theaters that have promotions and discounts for unemployed, Seniors, and students, with discounts from €1 to €4 in general admission that allow us to save a little money to go to the movies.
