I haven't paid to see a movie in forever, and of course I refuse to now even though I am out of the biz. Back when I was in the biz, I think adult tickets were around $7 for a non-matinee show.

What do adult tickets cost nowadays? Also please mention your theater chain so that you can get suspended since your corporate office is undoubtedly full of morons.

Most NYC theaters, including Regal and Loews, generally charge $10.25 to $10.50 for an adult admission. With rare exceptions, NYC theaters do not charge less for daytime admission.

I don't remember what I paid to see Star Wars and Close Encounters back in 1977, but $10.50 in 2005 dollars is $3.32 in 1977 dollars, and I think that's about right....probably paid around $3.50 back in 1977.

Des Moines area first-run ticket prices range from a high of $8.25, to a low of $7.00. If you're willing to drive to Ames, you can pay $6.75 Friday/Saturday or $6.50 weeknights at Cinemark Movies 12.

Matinee prices are much closer...$5.25 on the high end, $5.00 on the low. Cinemark in Ames is again the cheapest at $4.75. The very first show Mon-Fri is $4.25.

What I've found is that the real ticket increases have been in the matinee period. Less than ten years ago, matinees in areas I frequent were rarely more than $3 or $4. Now they're as high as $7.50. Evening shows at the time were $6 to $7. Now they're $7 to $9.

Regular (non-bargain) adult evening prices in Eugene/Springfield are $7.00 at the low end (Regal on slow weeknights) to $7.75 at the high end (Cinemark on weekends). Cinemark raised their prices when Oregon's minimum wage increased to $7.25/hr on Jan 1st. I think Regal held the line.
