These days, entertainment comes at a high price — especially movie tickets. But there are some great deals to be had for those 50 and older.
With these discounts, you can receive up to 35 percent off a regular adult movie ticket as well as deals on goodies at the concession stand. This means your movie experience will cost less.
There are also discounts to visit places such as the Kennedy Space Center or to play sports.
Scan the list below for some specific deals. Generally speaking, it’s always good to ask any retailer or establishment if a senior discount is offered. And check in advance to make sure these discounts are still available, because many vary by region.
