Personally, I think it's too much... The price for the movie itself is ok (about 8$ CAN) but as for the pop-corn and the drinks... 3,50$ for a regular bag that costed 20 to prepare and 3$ for Coke with water added so they can make more money, this is stealing!

P.-S. Yes I was bored when I got the idea for this topic.

It's robbery here in the states. Its about 8 bucks per movie, then 10 bucks more if you want popcorn and a couple drinks. It's much cheaper to wait a few months until its out on DVD.

I always sneak in food :shifty:

I think it's like $9.50 to see a movie here and for food and drinks it is like 7. Don't buy food. That makes it cheaper :P .

It's $7 on Weekdays here (about $4 US) and $8.75 on Weekends (around $5.50 US). So no, I don't think ticket prices are expensive here. The food is what is crazy. A medium bag of popcorn with a medium drink for $8? That's crazy! We don't have very strict rules here about food so I bring in an ice cream from Dairy Queen or some pretzels from Pretzelmaker all the time. Altogether, a movie and a good snack is $9 - $12.

We're paying so much because of the distributing. If it's an independent movie theatre that gets less famous movies you aren't going to pay as much because it's not highly distributed. I like independent movies, I should see more of them.

8.50 is waaay too much for a 2 hour movie. It's like 7 cents a minute. How ridiculous.

It is $6 here for a matinee but $8.50 after 6. Well a small drink is 2.50 and a small popcorn is about $4. I just bring in food from the food court. We aren't suppose to but no one really cares. We can't bring in bags if we go shopping now though which sucks.

I went to IMAX to see Revolutions and the ticket was 9.25 which was awsome and I also bought popcorn and a pepsi and that was 10.00 bucks and that was crap, even though it was alot of popcorn :D

Haha, in Manchester we have a really posh place called TheFilmWork - and in there is an even posher place still called The Gallery.

Damn...they're both just awesome. A little expensive I'll admit - 5.50 for a full adult ticket - but 3.50 with a student card (thank god).

The price is definately worth it though because of the facilities the place has: Really big seats, great food and great films.

The Gallery is absolutly amazing though. It's a lot more expensive and is really for over 18's, but a friend of mine know's the guy that runs the place, so we get let in =P

The gallery is like your own private cimema. You can eat, drink etc in your own room and then be lead out by a "cast member" (what they call the workers there" into the screen area and then watch your film...it really is good :D

so yeah...I'm happy with it :P

The ticket prices at the theatre here is really cheap, but the food and stuff is insanely high-priced.

I always sneak in food and drinks.

The ticket prices are far too expensive, they need to bring them down a few bucks to make a better profit on what people see. Along with the food prices!
