Going to the movies = Empty your pockets

April 9th, 2010 at 10:31 pm

Wow. I have not been living in a cave of anything but OMG I still can not get over how expensive it is to go to a movie! We went to Clash of the Titans today and it was $8.75 per person! Plus $5.30 for one pop and $6.00 for one popcorn......we snuck in the candy. So that comes to a grand total of $28.80 plus $3 for the 3 boxes of candy we brought from the grocery store = $31.80!!!!! Makes me bummed out that I even went to the movie when I think about spending that much....grrrrr....
Good thing we brought candy, that saved us $2.75 per box, so $8.25 saved there. I just can't go to a movie with out a drink and DH needs popcorn. But that would be why we only go to movies about 5 times a year or less. I would hate to be a teenage boy right now, I don't know how you could afford dates!!
Guess I will stick with my Netflix, $18.01 per month for unlimited movies, we usually get through about 20 movies a month. If you don't already have Netflix I would recommed checking it out, we love it!

    We cut costs by buying tickets at Costco. Another trick is to check if your theater actually has a no outside food policy, some don't! Finally see if there is an pre-matinee special. Our old theater was $5 before noon. Best part about that is you will be less tempted to have drink and popcorn.

    You could also just not buy into this silly idea of junk food during movies as it is something pushed by the industry and not a very healthy practice. Intead bring nuts and maybe a bottle of water...or do without food for 2 hours!

    Yeah I know.......we could for sure do that. But for the few times a year we actually go out to movies I do like to have a snack, or at least a drink. But yes those are good suggestions and I think I may need to just forego the snacks in the future as the prices make me nauseas anyways!
