Topic: Movie Tickets

When will it cost too much to go to the movies?

Here in Montreal we pay $13 at the AMC.

$12 at the Cineplex. $13.50 for IMAX and $15.50 for 3-D.

I caught ZOMBIELAND the other night at the Dollar Cinema for $2.

But how much is too much?

Re: Movie Tickets

It costs like 9$ out here, and i thinks thats high lol

Re: Movie Tickets

Meh ... only 12 bucks here. No big.

Re: Movie Tickets

prices are high for cinema seats here, but what gets me is the fucking prices of sweets and drinks unbelievable!:o

Re: Movie Tickets

^^ I'm with Wolfy, the prices of the tickets where I am are not too bad, it's the price/s they stick on to the food & drinks that's insane. For a small bag of popcorn and drink here it costs £11.80 which is ridiculous. It's why I do not go to the cinema often. I can handle the ticket prices but the amount they charge for cinema food is insane.

Re: Movie Tickets

You could always sneak food in...

Re: Movie Tickets

^^ I use to pR1m, all the time but now it just seems like a lot of effort when I can rent & watch it at home, with food I don't have to sneak lol It takes exceptional cases now for me to watch a film at the cinema, The Lovely Bones for example, that I will be taking a trip to the cinema. But more often I just prefer watching the movies at home now.

Re: Movie Tickets

damn ya'll it's $7.00 here for a night movie, and $6.00 for a day movie big_smile

I know what you mean. You can rent a movie for 5bucks and more often than not its more comfortable to watch a movie at home.

Totally agree with the price of sweets etc, if i take my wife & 2 kids to the cinema buy the time i buy the tickets & munchies i don't have much change out of £50.

Re: Movie Tickets

Movie tickets are very high. It's ridiculous. It's $14.50 a ticket where I live!! This is why I don't go to the theater often.

Re: Movie Tickets

Once prices went over US$8, I strongly curtailed the number of movies I go to.  I think it's about $10.50 regular, $9 for matinee.  Once Netflix came out, I stopped renting.  $5.50 at Blockbuster, the only nearby rental place.  For $19(?) or so, I run through about 10-12 movies a month.  And that's not including all the instant watch stuff that Vampy watches on her computer.  She ran through the entire A-Team series in one month.  And Dr. Who, and Little House of the Prairie, and etc etc. 

And I also hate how they charge out the hoo-haw for the snacks at the theatre, but they have to.  Theatres get ZERO revenue from the first weekend, then like 5% the 2nd weekend, etc.  If they didn't agree to those terms, the distributors told 'em, ok, you don't get the movie.  It's like that picture of a medium fish eating a small fish while a big fish is ready to chomp on the medium fish, all the while a shark is just hanging out right behind. 

Guess which one of the above we consumers are?
