Either the recession is getting worse or movie studios are just trying to make more money!
Maybe we'll have to rethink those Hunger Games: Catching Fire tickets…
According to a report from the National Association of Theater Owners, the average movie ticket price has slightly increased .08 percent in the third quarter in comparison to last year.
Which is odd, considering that the Box Office revenues over the summer were up by 6.5 percent from hit movies such as Despicable Me 2, We Are the Millers, and The Conjuring along with a few others!
Ugh, looks like we'll all be paying more to see the Girl on Fire this year.
Sigh, we just wonder if ticket prices will ever go back to single digits as opposed to double.
A movie outing should be fun time, not a reminder of the hard hitting times!
