Random Factoid #244

29 03 2010

I’ve heard a ton of talk amongst the box office reports this weekend about ticket prices at movie theaters skyrocketing over 20% in some places.  Honestly, enough is enough.  This is probably the first time that I have gone on the record about the ridiculous ticket prices, but I can assure you that it won’t be the last.

I looked through my movie ticket collection today and looked at how much the first ticket cost.  When I saw “Remember the Titans” in 2000, it cost $5 for a child’s admission.  In 2010, that same ticket at the same theater would cost $7.  That’s a 40% increase in one decade.  Insane.
