So Who Actually Goes To The Movies Anymore?

According to an article in The Consumerist, movie theatres in the US have recently raised their prices by an average of 10%.

These are the same people that were complaining a few months back, saying that piracy was causing their revenues to fall.

So, let me see if I have this right.

Revenues are down, so we blame the Internet and piracy.

People start coming back to the theatres (mainly for the 3D experience), so we should raise our prices.

Now maybe it’s just me, but if I take my wife and I to the theatre, I can see the movie once.

And the price I pay for it would be more than it would cost for me to buy the DVD in 2 months?

So, why would I do it?

Granted, if I wait for it to come out on DVD, I will miss out on:

People talking during the movie
Screaming children
Idiots on their cell phone
Concession food that requires a 2nd mortgage to afford

So, I guess, movie theatres, you reap what you sow. Good on ya!!
