Earlier this month we spotlighted a Groupon Deal that gave you four movie tickets for $20 – if you jumped through a few hoops. Today we found an even better deal, albeit one with more restrictions.

Bloomspot.com is offering one $3 movie ticket for a limited time, with the stipulation that it must be used for an AMC theater in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco or Washington D.C. You can purchase the ticket on BloomSpot, at which point you’ll receive a ticket number that can be redeemed at a participating AMC/Loews theater. According to the site, you’ll receive your ticket in the mail within 2-3 weeks.

One downside is that, unlike the Groupon deal, you have to pay a surcharge if you want to use this for a 3-D or IMAX movie. Since many movies are in 3-D these days, you won’t necessarily be able to see your favorite flick for just $3. It’s also limited to one ticket per person.

Still, seeing a movie for anywhere close to $3 is a deal to jump at, and this deal looks legit. If you decide to give this a try – and for $3, you might as well – let us know how it works out and if you have any issues getting your ticket.
