But don’t worry, you can make up for the extra costs by buying overpriced steak dinners or something. Now, I’m all for theaters having a bigger menu, I just know the food will be out of my price range, because I’m a cheap bastard.
Now, I’m no economist, but I am a guy who sees movies and has a budget, and one thing the ever-increasing price of films has done, is make me see less films in the theaters. I don’t even bothere with 3D, partially because 3D does little if anything to make me more immersed in the film (it is usually wasted or rarely used in many of the films I have seen it with) and partially because it just costs too much for too little of a return. I don’t really want to pay extra money to bail out theaters because the 3D gimmick is turning out to be the gimmick everyone said it was, and the easy way to counter that is to not go to theaters that initiate this price increase.
