Post Reply What's the price of a movie ticket in your area ?
Posted 5/30/17
21$ but for me its $16.50 since I'm a student.

I only go to two different cinemas: Cinebistro or Frank Theaters.
Cinebistro is around $16.50 per ticket and Frank Theaters is $18.50 per ticket. Cinebistro has plush reclining loveseats and Frank Theaters has recliners. Cinebistro is usually the "winner" for me 9 times out of 10 because the seats are relatively private (as long as you bring a date, nobody sits "tied" to either side of you).

Then... with dinner and drinks, I usually end up spending something like $70-80 per movie. I go maybe once a month, depending on what movie is showing.

I pay $5 per ticket before 5 p.m. and then $10 per ticket after 5 p.m.

All seats at the theaters are recliners as well. They also made the whole seat selection part a lot easier by letting you reserve your seat when purchasing your ticket(s)

$6.50 all day every day
$8.50 for 3D movies
They also have this deal at the end of every year where they sell these big plastic cups for like $13 each but then for the entirety of the next year you can bring it in and get it filled for $1 and all together for me and my mom we pay about $20 and some change.

Depends on a lot of things. The day, if it's 3D or not and the category. German cinemas usually have two price categories, one costs about 1-2€ more than the other because the seats are better.
The cheaper category usually covers the seats from about the middle to the front.

If you go on the days from monday to wednesday it's ususally cheaper as well.
I'll only cover the higher priced seats here because that's what I usually get (because they really are better ^^).

For a 2D movie it would be around 10€ (~$11,19) sometimes only 7€ (~$7,84) but that's become more rare. For 3D around 13€ (~$14,55) on monday to wednesday.
If you go on a weekend you'll probably have to pay 12€ (~$13,43) for 2D and 15€ (~$16,79) for 3D.

Special Events like Anime Nights (because Anime movies usually play only once or twice here) can be a bit more expensive.
It's also pretty common to charge 1€ extra if the movie is especially long.
But as a student you'll get 1€ discount at almost every cinema.

If you want to book your tickets in advance you'll usually have to pay an extra fee (mostly 0,50€ or 1€). Despite the extra cost a lot of people do this though because unlike a lot of other countries, in Germany the seat number is printed on your ticket and that's where you have to sit.
You can ask the cashier for certain seats of course. They will sometimes ask if you prefer sitting in the far back or maybe the middle. But they will always give you centered seats if possible. Even if you don't ask for anything special they will try to give you good seats.
That's why a lot of people book their tickets in advance and chose their seats on the internet. If you just buy the ticket at the movie theatre, chances are high that the good seats are already taken.

So I'd say anything between $8 and 19$ would be possible and more or less normal.
Depending on your preferences, the day, the cinema and so on.

A non-3D movie is around 14 € for an adult. If it's a 3D movie its usually 18-20 € for adults.

I was reading through all of the other posts just out of curiosity, maybe New Jersey is just harsh with prices.. standard tickets with normal seats are $12+, while standard tickets with recliner seats are anywhere between $15-$20. Of course 3D and IMAX are above $20..

I checked a few local theaters and cinemas around my area. The price is not the same throughout

It looks like cinema as cheaper than theaters

There's $2 a ticket (anytime)- but on old movies only (movies that are no longer in theaters but have yet to come out on blu-ray/dvd)

i didn't know you can reserve seats online

so this is why the price is about 1.5x more recliners -- you can't put as many people in as the standard seats

I think it's because the taxes are so phenomenally high that the tickets are affected drastically .. sad really

It's also the high cost of living in the state in general. We're sandwiched between NYC and Philly, and have some of the wealthiest per capita counties in the country. Plus it's pharmaceutical companies as far as the eye can see....

And sure, you might be able to point to the pine barrens or a few of the areas in the southernmost counties as being "poor" but that's only by comparison. It's not the same as it is in other states, which have smaller urban centers and greater areas with less dense population.

Cali's probably got an equal-ish "urban hub" with san fran and san diego and all points in between, but then look at the size and makeup of the state...
