I don’t hate Movies. I just hate them being so overpriced.

The rising costs of movie tickets (and the “essentials” for enjoying a movie) have driven people like me to stay at home rather than going to theaters.

The average movie ticket costs about Rs 220. Popcorn costs about Rs 80, and a drink, about Rs 50. Thus, the average expense at a theater is about Rs 350. For a family of four, that’s approximately Rs 1,400 for two-and-a-half hours of entertainment. Include the Parking fees of Rs 100 for a car (or, 2 x two-wheelers, in my case) to make it Rs 1,500.

The way in which movie studios are reimbursed by local theaters has a big role in deciding prices. The studio may can ask for as much as 90% of the revenue from sales of movie tickets, in the first week of the release. This means that the high prices of the “First week” or “First-day-show” tickets aren’t actually benefiting the theaters tremendously. The theater gets more share of ticket sales in next weeks . So, when we go to watch a movie for second time (or first time, but in second week), theaters are getting more share, and giving lesser to the studio.
