    $9 or so for an adult, non-matinee ticket in Philadelphia. Go to the movies early or happen to be younger than 12 or older than 60 and the ticket price drops nearly in half.

    If he's talking in Canadian dollars that equates to about 10 US dollars. That's not too bad for the biggest city in Canada.

    Where I live in Southern California the tickets range from $1.00 to $8.50 depending on the theatre and the time you go. In nearby Los Angeles, I have seen prices as high as $13.00, more for Imax. At a Disney owned theater called the El Capitan, I once paid $28.00/person for my kids to go see Dinosaur but that was a special occasion and we saw it three weeks before general release.

    8.50$CDN. But there are no matinees. No discounts. Just one price all the time.

    Back in TO you COULD pay 13$. Or go on a matinee night (or just catch a 6pm show if you could) and get it for 7.50$. You could also go to mainline "discount" (non super-sized) theatres and get it for 7.50$ regular and 5.00$ cheap (Woodbine has one, for instance).

    Then there are the super super cheap places where they're playing movies that aren't necessarily new. As low as 2$ for a main show.

    But, yeah, here in Winnipeg it's basically 8.50$ everywhere, everytime for everyone

    Here in Orange County, CA (Home to the "OC" tv show and now "Laguna Beach") we pay $9 and up for a ticket. A few theaters have student pricing for those who kept their student id after college but thats becoming less and less prevalent. Costco has just introduced a program to get tickets for something like $7 each if you buy them upfront... it's a pain to do but when you go often the savings are great. I've never paid much more than $10 for a ticket but I do know of a few theaters in the area that aren't part of the major chains that are over the $10 mark and there's a few I've been to in NYC that were even more. Given how expensive movies are and how cheap you can get a DVD for on sale its only a matter of time before movies become uneconomical... I already find myself watching less and less in the theater and investing in a larger DVD library (that reminds me, it's time for another dvd rack).

    Almost $11. I win!


    Oh, wait, that means I lose.

    The figure is probably also a bit distorted by the fact that the Swedish Krona is currently very over-valued over the U.S. dollar.

    Our regular place is £5 regular/imax adult, monday-thursday evenings, rising to £5.50 all day friday-sunday. That's about US$9/10 at current exchange rates. Students/kids/seniors are £3.50 (about US$6.30)

    It costs SGD8.50 on weekends (they actually start counting Thurday nights as 'weekends') and SGD6.50 on Monday-Wednesday. (SGD stands for Singapore Dollar, and 1 USD = 1.68 SGD right now.)

    Even with DVDs being a lot cheaper than taking the family to the cinema, I will still go about 10-12 times a year. Going to the cinema is more about the experience than simply watching a movie. At home you don't get the crowds reaction to suspenseful scenes and the collective sigh of relief when the hero succeeds. You don't get the larger than life characters on a 60-100 foot screen and the wide panoramic vistas that encompass your entire frame of vision. This is what the cinema is. Nothing beats the experience of sitting in the theater and watching a movie in my opinion.

    Now sure, I have quite a few DVD's (almost 400 now) but many of them I first saw in the theater over the years. I could simply purchase a wide screen television and wait up to 2 years after release for the DVD to hit the streets. I could order them on Pay-Per-View or watch them HBO as well. And I do all of this but nothing still beats the experience of the cinema. So as prices rise, I may not go as much but I can never eliminate the experience.
