Found this about a local Regal theatre. http://www.adn.com/a...ory/592848.html

Hopefully Regal continues this trend, because I hate paying nearly $10 a ticket to go see a movie.

Think about it, growing up I got to see maybe 2 movies a year in the theatre because I was part of a family of five, that's almost $45 in tickets alone, much less snacks. This is great for families, and the theatre isn't out any due to concession sales.

Yeah, I hope so too. I live in a family of 7 which costs us $70.00 for all tickets! You bet I would love to see those prices come down too.

They did this in Alaska to throw you guys a bone for having to deal with the return of Palin.

In this economy, EVEN in this economy, they're not going to drop their prices significantly on the large scale.

When they do the math, there's just no reason for them to do that. They don't care if a theater gets 100 people for a showing or 175. They only care about which represents a higher gross, concession sales included, of course.

We are living in bad, bad times now.

And I can't believe you pay close to 10 bucks for a ticket--although I really DO believe you. But here in South Florida (near Ft. Lauderdale/Boca), the average is about $7.50.

However, we don't get the free state check each year for a couple of grand like you do from the oil companies, so what the hell are you bitching about?

$7.50? It's $11.25 at the theater I go to. It's one of the cheaper one, too. If you go to Hollywood you'll pay $13

Contrary to popular belief and opinion, Florida is still the SOUTH. But I now realize that I misspoke:

I'm married with kids, and never go to Friday and Saturday evening showings, so that's the big difference. We always go during the day.

Friday and Saturday evenings are indeed 10 bucks:
