I usually drive to Smittys ( and pay five bucks. The food is unbelievably horrible, but the seats are good and they often send free coupons in the mail.

Otherwise I'm stuck going downtown and paying eight bucks.

$3.50 for Student Night every Tuesday. But you've gotta be there at least 15 minutes before the show, otherwise you're not getting in.

There's also a good drive-in nearby thats 5 bucks per car.

$4.50 for Matinee, $6.00 for anything after 6pm/ Sometimes living in a small town is a good thing.

The only movie theatre in the city apparently has prices of $5.75 for matinees and $8.25 regularly, according to their website. Not too bad, but that's good because any other options are kind of limited.

There's a theatre 20 miles away that shows movies after they've been out for a while for $2.75 and $3.75. Of course you'd have to add the cost of driving there, let's say 2 gallons of gas, and it comes to like $8.35 to see a matinee of movies from this list: Batman Begins, Fantastic Four, Herbie Fully Loaded, Madagascar, Mr & Mrs Smith, Stealth, and Supercross.

In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

&8.00 for main shows, $6.50 for matinees.

They'll lower the price soon because the theatre is rumoured to be closing.

In my area, ticket prices range from a low of $6.75 evening/$4.75 matinee to $8.25 evening/$5.25 matinee.

And yes, I still go...37 times this year so far.

I love the movies.

8.50-8.75 after 6pm, 3pm or so on weekends. Matinee prices (my usual domain) are usually 6-6.50.

I sure wish we had dollar theaters out here. Ah, college.

Movies have crept up to $10.00 or even $10.50 here in New York. Usually no matinees or student discounts either.

I pay, but I always check the listings and time it so I can see two movies I want to see in a row. I also always take in a sandwich or something from outside and never pay for concessions.

Man's most valuable trait is a judicious sense of what not to believe.

Regular price is usually around $9.50, but Mrs. Freeze gets discount tickets from the teacher's union for $5 each.

Either that, or we go to the low-budget theater that shows 2 month old movies for $3. Cant argue with that.

I pretty much only go to the AMC Burbank 16 now. Matinees are $8. I have no idea what full price is since I haven't been to a non-matinee at a major chain in YEARS.

For special event movies (Star Wars, Batman, etc.), I go to The Vista. Matinees are $5 and full-price is $8.

It's been about $7 for Matinee at Edwards or AMC and $8 or $9 at regular price.

Went to see Batman at the Chinese Theatre and that was $11.50.

As for the smaller theatre chains: No more double features. No more 2 for 1 days and all of the discounts are hardly that.
