I don't keep them but I was cleaning out my drawer and found a stub for Tommy Boy. I remember seeing that with my dad.

I use to stick the drive-in stubs in the plastic molding above the driver's window that holds down the roof upholstery. Kept them till I got rid of the car and then started over.

I know I have all of mine going back at least as far as opening night of Interview With the Vampire. They are widely scattered though - some in my wallet, some in drawers, some in boxes in the spare room, some in boxes in the attic....one day I'll put them all together and see what I have. I know there are 8 stubs from Jason X in there, I saw it I think 6 times the first weekend it came out lol. Same with Resident Evil and Freddy vs Jason.

I only have one that I know of, from the first movie my wife and I saw together when we started dating. I didn't initially keep it deliberately, but when a I found it a year later and she and I had already bought a house together and were talking marriage, it seemed like a good idea to keep it.

For the record, the movie was Elizabeth. The fact that it is a fantastic film makes it all the more worth keeping.

I have nearly every single one (I'm sure I've lost 1 or 2) since 1988.

I save them only if I'm eating at the Chinese buffet which gives a 10% discount with a stub for that day.

I don't save mine, but I did save my stub from Batman (1989) as well.

I don't save them. While I save my concert tickets, I never saw any reason to keep movie and sports tickets.

I keep all my stubs and concert tickets. I have been collecting them for about 20 years now and have a nice little box filled with them all.

just concert/theatre tickets, the occassional movie tix stub will be in a wallet or a coat pocket, somewhere just casually placed.

I had to refer to your picture, because I only have one movie ticket stub, and it's Willard, like you have in the front of the container there. It was the first movie my girlfriend and I went to see together.

I still put my movie stubs in a 32 oz. plastic cup for the past 6-8 years or so.
