A brief review of the cinematic landscape this year will give most visual adrenaline seekers a temporary buzz. I'm a big fan of action and fantasy, and you can be sure this year will find me fidgeting nervously in front of the latest blockbuster on some nearby movie theater seat.

Here I'll let you in on an easy way to watch more movies for less money. As well as taking the obvious first step of signing up for the customer loyalty program at your favorite theater, the easiest way to chalk up movie savings is by using the right credit card for your cinema purchases. Certain credit cards reward you with cash back or other rewards each time you purchase a movie theater ticket. Here I've listed some of the most rewarding credit cards to use for your movie theater purchases.
