Admit One

Full price for an adult movie ticket in Japan is nothing to sneeze at, and though this is the summer movie season, it pays to be choosy. Dropping ¥1,800 for garbage cinema here is quite more upsetting than getting burned by a far-cheaper discount matinee back home.

Where are the discount movie matinees in Japan, anyway? If you’re a woman and today is a Wednesday, then “everywhere” is the correct answer (the price on “Ladies Day” drops to ¥1,000).

Things are more difficult for you if you are man (some theaters offer comparable Mens’ Days tickets on Thursdays for ¥1,000, some do not), but plenty of low-cost movie tickets are available. Discount ticket stores, usually found inside or near the busier train stations, offer slightly-cheaper Shinkansen, bus, concert and movie passes for the masses (around ¥1,300 for a movie ticket).

Convenience stores like Lawson and Circle K also offer low-cost tickets for about ¥1,300, though the cheapest and easiest option for the dudes (aside from just downloading the movie, which is bad and should not be done) may be to wait until the first day of the month, when movie tickets for men and women are ¥1,000.
