does a film ticket cost where you live?

I pay €5.80 and was wondering how that compares to the rest of the planet.

Usually $8.50 in DC and Long Island or $9-10 in NYC. It's ludicrous, and that's why now I don't often see movies with friends that I don't really want to see.

5.80? I think it's 6.50 in Gent.

Josh

Wowie, that's expensive! :eek:

But I guess I spend something like €8.50-9 if I include snacks, candy and drinks at the theatre. ;)

Yep it's 5.60 in Gent (if you're under 24)

Well it depends on the theatre I guess. Kinepolis is the cheapest but other, smaller theatres are a few cents more.

It's kinda cheap i think here it's something like 6.50€ maybe more in some places.

Depends if you're a student or not too.

£6.50 - £8.00 depending on where you go in London. I choose not to go at those prices. It's extortion!

In Belfast it was £3.50 for students! That was great!

A couple places in NYC and DC have student discounts, but only for matinees. Sometimes I could scrounge up cheap tickets or coupons at the Student Union, and if you waited long enough you had a 50-50 chance of seeing the movie for free on campus.

As for food and drink, normally we just buy stuff at a convenience store beforehand and bring it in...it's quite a bit cheaper and no one really cares...

So Belfast is the cheapest so far.

We have to buy food and drinks at the theatre, we can't bring our own.

Oh there was this little theatre in Padua. It was all old but I went there quite a lot of times. For students, it was 3.10€ .

LOL

There was just something in our campus newspaper today about how much is it for a movie ticket. and how outdated the theaters are. tickets are 8.50 on weekdays, and 9.00 on weekends. It is a big rip off, and the theaters here in toledo are prehistoric.

We're not supposed to bring our own either...but, I mean, the ushers have a median age of 16. What are they going to do? And do they really care?

I worked at the movie theater my senior year of high school. Believe me...we didn't care.

Hurley - where do you go to see movies in the D.C. area? I go to the AMC chain of theatres and pay 7.50 and 5.50 before 6:00pm.

7.50 euro or even more expensive (depends on the day)

Hurley

Choco, we usually go to the ones at Union Station when I'm in DC...or to the arthouse in Dupont (next to Cosi neι Xando) if we want to see something good...

Usually I go to my local AMC here in MD though. ;)

It's also 5.60€ in Brussels but they charge 0.20€ extra if you pay with a bankcard.

$10.50 for student
$13 for non student

(that's in Aussie dollars...so just about half it and that gives you the cost in euro and USD).

So about 5.25 euro for student
and about 6.5 euro for non student

Bloody hell - I think it is about 9 bucks a ticket in my hometown now, for an evening show.

Matinee is cheaper.

There is no fee for students - if I only looked 12 and under, or 65 and older I would get to pay less though (bitches!) :)

I'm told that if I want to go to the show in Toronto I'll pay up to 12 bucks. Someone else might want to verify that though, seeing as I don't go in Toronto.

I worked for a movie theatre my last year of highschool, and the summer before.

When we opened up a ticket for the evening show was something like 7.00 - I forget the exact price. Anyhow, over the year and a half that I worked there, they hiked tickets to 8.75!!! It's higher now, but I'm not positive, so I guess it was 9. Bitches!!! They don't seem to understand that we ARE NOT TORONTO!

"Cheap" night it used to cost me 4.50 for a ticket, and now costs 6.75 at last check.

Students before 6pm is £2.50
Adults before 6pm is £3
Both after 6 pm are £3.50

That's my prices when I'm at home, but if I'm down South its about 5-7 euro depending on the time.

£3 in Hull (UGC - student discount) - It was quite a relief to find something which is cheaper in England than in Belgium ;)

sheesh! I paid 8.5 pounds to see a movie in England... but it was in London, so I guess you expect that! ;)

In Moscow it depends first of all on the cinema, also on the time and the day of the week.

In the popular cinemas in the Center of Moscow tickets cost around 6- 10$ (that's most expensive it gets), in the mornings it's much cheaper.

But there are also cinemas that are not really popular, that are not renovated (sp?), like yesterday I went to a cinema- no popcorn, no drinks, no food, no ads, it's pretty Soviet inside and I'm sure many people don't know it exists. Well they show movies that are not shown anywhere else, mostly Russian, I saw a fnatastic Georgian-French movie yesterday and it cost me 3$ :)

Are the movies badly dubbed into Russian? When I studied in St. Petersburg back in 1992, you could hear both the original soundtrack and the Russian dubbing on anything dubbed into Russian. It made it virtually impossible to watch anything.

Now usually you don't hear the original voices, just the Russian dubbing, which is not perfect very often, but I'm kinda used to it , I try not to pay attention. The thing that annoys me is that when the movie involves singing, they start dubbing it too. There are some cinemas where there are just subtitles or headphones, some where there is no dubbing at all :) When I know that a good movie in English is on I always try to go there :)

Why don't they use subtitles instead of dubbing? In Belgium and The Netherlands all movies are shown in their original version with subtitles, except for some children's movies.

hehe:) How comfortable are theatres in Hull? The cinemas I went to in London weren't very comfortable, small screen, uncomfortable seats, etc, a bit like the arthouse cinemas here. Not at all like the kinepolis experience I'm used to.

You mean Flanders and The Netherlands, its obviously a Dutch thing. I really don't understand this dubbing, what's the purpose of that :confused:
I would wanna hear Sean Conery's voice when I see a movie with him in it, I don't even like dubbed animation movies.
And how do you see movies like "The Sound of Music", "Grease" and "Moulin Rouge" :confused:
