I guess if you factor in the cost of concessions and stuff the price goes up even more. However, the concessions aren't required by any means...so it seems ridiculous to lump them into process. Should you also get your money back on your concessions if you weren't happy with the movie?

I agree that the movie industry and the sporting industry is mega-buck big dollar enterprise. And generally speaking, I don't have the cash to support either of them. I rarely attend a sporting event, I don't buy any sporting merchandise and I rent 95% of my movies with Netflix or watch them on premium cable channels.

I'm not the person who said that movies were more like $40 for 2 people. The only way that I could reach that number was with concessions. And I assumed if you were concerned about the $40 spent, you would be concerned with all of it. So, that's why I asked where you draw the line. I don't really think it's out of line at all.

A. Are they needed? No

B. Do they add to a better experience for going to the movies? Yes

C. Do I include them in the price of going to a movie? Yes

D. Are they thought of the same way as a movie? No. That is stupid

E. Can you get a refund if not happy with the quality? Yes

F. Are conssesions Expensive? Yes. But that is the cost of running a theater, they are (as far as I know) completely separate side of the business. They don't make enough off of ticket sales. As I understand it. And if they do, and charge so much just because they can, that is called gauging and another reason to not go. But I do not believe that is the case.

Again, I have made my points clear. And now I am done.
