Regular ticket adult price here is just over ten and change.
We aren’t a big city by any stretch, maybe that’s the difference.

Also $22 American = 29 Canadian $ right now. At those prices I feel bad if you see a real dud.

When I was in my early 20s I used to go to the movies on a weekly basis and we used to see anything opening that weekend that seemed interesting. Or we’d show up at 9pm and just see what was starting in the next 5 minutes. I saw some awful movies like “Solo” starring Mario Can Peebles that way. It was like $6 even on a Saturday night, $4 for a matinee in our theater in Queens. So we didn’t care. I can’t even imagine going to a movie just for the hell of it these days. Now I’m down to about 2 movies a year that are huge blockbusters and I feel must be seen on the big screen and that I want to avoid spoilers on. But I go right after work, in midtown Manhattan, and they’re usually IMAX 3-D (because that’s usually all that’s offered).  I know a friend of mine says he goes to a theater in a Brooklyn sometimes that still does $5 matinees. Normal price for non-3D is probably closer to $12 throughout much of the city.

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
