2 tix = $70.00
not including concessions or parking.

Can you imagine someone spending that to see the next Rob Schneider movie?

Pickled ginger has a pretty long shelf life.

This'll be nice if they go back to the good ol' days, where moviemaking is an actual experience instead of something to do when you're bored.

Any form of entertainment including sports is becoming prohibitive.

As long as people pay obscene prices for these, the prices will continue to rise. My brother in law will take me (his treat) to Yankee Stafium one last time. I will go & see each new stadium once & tht is it. We see most movies now on netflix & almost all theater is on tdf & if we do not see something because we cannot get a deal, so be it. We bring water with us to the show & buy nothing but a magnet. The few movies we go to we bring food in with us.

Except Gold Class Cinemas are amazing!!! It's definitely my favourite way to see a film, so long as it's a good one. I went and saw the opening of Dreamgirls there, plus many other films I REALLY wanted to see...otherwise I wouldn't bother. But it REALLY improves the movie-going experience!!!

I think they tried to do something similar to this here in NYC, certainly at the Loew's 34th Street, where they had leather seats and people taking orders for snacks and things, and it didn't last long. Ultimately, paying that kind of money to see stuff like "SEMI-PRO" just seems silly.

I love Gold Claas have been watching movies this way for the past 11 years. Just don't go Friday Saturday or Sunday when prices go up to around the $40.00 dollar mark.
Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian

I always enjoyed seeing movies at the Angelika at Mockingbird Station, in Dallas. Leather seats. A coffee and drink bar. Tickets weren't too bad, either.

They need to open one in Dallas stat!

Can you imagine someone spending that to see the next Rob Schneider movie?

Due to the fact he makes one every 5 years, that should be changed to Adam Sandler.
He's a faker, and you've been taken in by his con. And in doing so, you are enabling him. He is doing more damage to aspergers than papa's words ever could. -Chane/Liverpool on me having asperger syndrome.

I paid $7 just before 5:00PM today, then went back for the Boleyn movie at 7:05...that was $10, and the coke and popcorn was another $10:50...ridiculous.

I'll stick to matinees without popcorn
