C'mon Hollywood: Movie tickets are getting too damn expensive


I’ve always loved going to the movies, be it drive-in (I saw E.T. and MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE at the drive-in though in all honesty I don’t much remember the experience beyond the fact that it was my first date as a kid and the girl I was with fell asleep which I’m told made me angry), the plain Jane theatre experience or the newest IMAX and 3-D experiences. Don’t get me wrong though, I also have a distinct fondness for those back rooms you see in electronics stores with the pimped out surround sound system set up around a nice comfy chair as well. I’ve built myself a similar home system and enjoy it rather shamelessly. But when push comes to shove I always jump at the opportunity to hit the theatre, though I must admit the prices are getting beyond ridiculous lately.
