It’s time to go to the movies on the cheap! Today’s deal at Groupon is $20 for Four Movie Tickets from WeeklyCinema.com.
These are tickets to some of the best theaters in Wichita that will be redeemed at MovieTickets.com (the authorized online ticketer for our theaters).
How it works Once you’ve received your Groupon, you’ll take it to merchant like you normally would; but in this case, the “merchant” is an online business, WeeklyCinema.com. WeeklyCinema.com is a movie club that normally requires a monthly subscription to get access to its movie discounts. But purchase the deal at Groupon.com today and you’ll get a four-pack that comes with NO monthly enrollment and no strings attached!
WeeklyCinema.com will give you 4 promotional codes to redeem online at MovieTickets.com* for participating theaters. Our participating theaters here in Wichita are:
* Warren Old Town Theatre & Grill – Wichita
* 13th Avenue Warren – Wichita
* Dickinson Northrock 14 – Wichita
* West 21st Warren – Wichita
* Dickinson Mall 8 Hutchinson Theatre – Hutchinson
* B & B Cowley Cinema 8 – Winfield
*Please don’t redeem your tickets at Fandango. Wichita has no theaters that sell online tickets through that service. The online ticketing service where we need to redeem our WeeklyCinema tickets is MovieTickets.com. And it does work! Three people I’m close to have already used their tickets.
Go get ‘em! They sometimes sell out quickly, and I know some folks were hesitant to purchase when I first wrote about them when they were on sale at another deal site. But Groupon is a more familiar deal site to most of us, so lots of folks will probably grab these up now. If you have Groupon referral credit, then this will be an especially sweet deal for you!

- Will these work at our local theaters? Yes they will. Please see the list of theaters above.
- Do I have to enroll or subscribe to a plan at Weekly Cinema to get these tickets? NO. That’s one of the benefits of this deal–you get the discounted price without the membership commitment.
- Are these tickets restricted, like just being used for matinees? No, they aren’t restricted to just matinees. In fact, some matinees may not be available to purchase online. These codes will work for any movie ticket that can be purchased online at MovieTickets.com*. You can go to MovieTickets.com, type in your zip code, and find “ticketable” theaters for Wichita (and the Wichita area). Then you’ll see a list of the movies you can buy tickets for right now. This will give you an idea of how MovieTickets.com works.
- Why is this so confusing? Eh. I know. But it’s just because there are a few different businesses involved in one transaction. But right now, I don’t know of another way to get movie tickets to first-run movies at night, at a good theater. So I went for it, and I’m going to use at least one of my tickets to see Secretariat.
- Did you know the Warren Old Town is only $5 on Wednesdays? Yes!!! And I love that! And they have other discounts for military and for employees of certain Wichita-area companies. Just arrive early, as I’ve heard it can get pretty packed on those nights.
*WeeklyCinema promo codes may also be redeemed at Fandango, BUT there are no participating Wichita theaters at that website. So if you live here in Wichita and plan to see a movie here, redeem your tickets at MovieTickets.com.
