Whether you’re a film buff or not, we all love trips to the movies, but the costs can be surprising even for cinema regulars. Let’s just look at the costs of going see one movie:
- Ticket: $12-$14
- Popcorn: $6-$8 (plus refills)
- Drink: $4.50-$5.50
- Combo: $19 for 2 Large Drinks and a Large Popcorn (#2 on AMC Theaters’ menu, I get this all the time)
Considering that forgoing popcorn and a drink is blasphemous, the grand total for each 2-person trip is $44 (thankfully we normally split or rotate).
No wonder people ration their trips to the theater!
