I guess the average ticket price for the whole year will be around $8.00 - up two quarters from $7.50 in 2009 - or what do you think?

Well Avatar, Alice and Clash comprised almost $1 Billion domestic so far this year, thats a big chunk of the movie going audience. I suspect with more upcoming 3D pics, $8.00 is about right. Will see just as big a jump next year too.

CLASH is not included in the first quarter... Than add SHREK & TOY STORY for the 2nd quarter...

Ah yes Clash came out at the end of March. And you can add Dragon to that second quarter list...

You're right, forgot about DRAGON which had only 6 days in March, than came CLASH Apri 2nd... On the other hand TS3 will have "only" 13 days in the 2nd quarter (but that's probably worth $200m)...

If this is truly the average, then 3D prices will be included as well. Considering that Alice/HTTYD/Avatar had maybe 70% of their gross in 3D and Clash had around 55%, $200m of the $752m gross was 3D. If 3D prices are $3 greater than 2D, then that would give a 2D/3D average price of $7.34/$10.34.

I question the average price as well. Not sure how much kids tickets play a part though.

Hmm, so obviously they are factoring in 3D inflation into the average price. Let that be a lesson to anybody trying to tack on a 30% premium above and beyond that $7.95 figure. Double dipping!

Or you could just ignore it and go with 4% over 2009 prices, which would be $7.80. Then tack on 3D after that.

Yep, that's what I try to do.

2008 also had 3d premium. I would take around 7.35 without 3d.

Pretty sure the ticket prices at BOM through 2009 don't factor in 3D. Just look at the increases over the years and the 2008/2009 prices aren't out of whack.

Looking at number of 3d films and huge grosses made by them, I am finding it hard to believe 3D just added 10c to average ticket price. That just is not possible as 3D grosses alone would be excess of 1B which would be quite significant.

That's because the theater owners are full of BS with their estimate on 3D's impact.

Lot of kid tickets are sold, and those are cheaper. Plus you have those second-run theaters who have like $6 tickets.

Even in Los Angeles you can go the movies for $3 in Dollar Houses like this one:

But there are many more, just look at this SoCal list:

Sometimes when I wanted to catch up with an older movie, I went to a Dollar House and it was always pretty packed - but the theaters are usually very rundown...

Miraculously I only paid $5.25 on Saturday at 12 PM for Inception. I couldn't believe it when the lady asked for $5.25. I had to ask her again to verify it because the prices on Fandango were more in the $9.25 range for that theater. Apparently they have an "early bird" special for the first showing of the day. :funny:

We've started offering $3 tickets to select first matinees on Wednesday. The turnout has been pretty good, with people checking out a movie that may not have paid $6-7 for.

Tickets here in VA are an outrageous $10 for a regular show and $5 for matinees. 3D is an extra $3, IMAX an extra $4. I'm glad we haven't reached the $20+ ticket price that NYC has, but it's still frakking ridiculous.

Uh, that isn't outrageous. I pay $12 for regular and $9 for matinee and that's in the suburbs of MD.

According to the National Association of Theater Owners, the average domestic admissions price averaged $7.71 in the third quarter, a 2 percent drop from the $7.88 reported in Q2 and 3 percent decline from the record-high $7.95 tallied in Q1.

For the year, the average ticket price is $7.85, up about 5 percent from $7.50 in 2009.

Outrageous?!?

Movies are the cheapest going-out entertainment activity available!

Compare them to concerts, bars, plays, sporting events, museums, trade shows... whatever - - there's nothing cheaper than movies.

Not only that, the quality of presentation, sound and picture technology, and the comfort of auditoriums has been continuously getting better and better since the 90's - - we are in a new golden age of big screen movies!

I love going to the movies!!!
