Movies are not cheap to go to anymore. You have pay $9.50 per person and that does not include all the snacks as well. It might be a better idea to wait for the movie to come out on video and rent them. Just to go to a movie with you significant other can end up costing you a good $40.
Go to the movies 1 time a month:
Admission for 2 people: $19.00
Large Popcorn: $5.00
Candy/ Chocolate: $5.00
2 Sodas: $10.00
Total: $39.00 over 12 months = $468.00
What if you bring some kids and friends? Two hours of entertainment can turn into a quick $100 spend! I think the theatres needs to start making it worth our while to go to movies. They did come up with the stadium seating. I think it is still better to relax and watch a movie at home and be comfortable and not getting taken to the cleaners for a movie and some popcorn.
