I use to be an avid movie goer til the prices got ridiculous!
I use to go to the matinee which was between 4pm-6pm and it was $3 bucks, now it's $7 bucks! A regular movie ticket here is $9 bucks. If you go to 3D
I think it's about $12-13 and the D-Box experience (which is stupid) is $16 bucks.
I went to see The Hobbit with my fiancee's mom recently and I got one kids meal which had a small popcorn, drink and bag of candy. It was $6 bucks. I
also got a SMALL coke and one box of chocolate covered almonds and it was $9 friggin bucks! I couldn't believe it. It was highway robbery!
If I go to a movie by myself, which is rare anymore with the cost, I always bring my big purse with a flat bottom and hit the drive thru or Dollar
Store and get my goodies. I can get an entire meal and box of candy for what they charge for a friggin pop corn. I don't know how they can get away
with such inflated prices, it's like price gouging!
I can only imagine taking your family to the movies and how much it costs. When my fiancee was home we saw "Finding Nemo" in 3D and got some snacks
and it was $60 bucks for the two of us with ticket cost and concession stand prices. We got a popcorn, two drinks and a box of candy! That is it!
I love my Netflix and the Redbox. I hit up the Redbox when I go to the grocery store. I can wait to see a movie unless it's something I have to see
in theaters and lately there hasn't been anything worth seeing in theaters so I'll save my money. I'd rather buy groceries!
