Watching The Movie or Watching Our Pocket?

Buying a seat to a Broadway show can set you back hundreds of dollars. Going to a concert can be even more pricey. Movies are a great way to be entertained on the cheap. With little effort or time, you can laugh or cry along with your favorite stars. However, on a recent trip to AMC NorthPark 15, I noticed that movie tickets and concession prices have skyrocketed. What used to be a value is turning into a wallet-pinching process. The normal ticket is $11 for adults, but an additional $4 to $6 is added for Imax and 3D showings. Not to mention the unreasonable costs for concessions. A small soda is $4.25; a water bottle is $4. A pizza is $7.75, but if you want extra cheese it adds up to almost $10. Even a medium popcorn is $6.75! While I do not want to resort to sneaking in food from the food court, sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures.
