I guess it's partly due to these huge blockbusters filling up 3D and IMAX shows.

^Agreed summers generally tend to have biggest average because of blockbusters pushing 3D, IMAX, PLF. This year we had huge blockbusters to have the same effect.

Post Re: Average ticket prices
I just looked at the trend for year over year box office growth. As a trend the increase has declined with inflation, and around the turn of the millennium started to fall below inflation. If the linear trend continues and inflation continues at the same average pace, box office would start to actually contract in a decade or so.

Obviously there's a lot of noise and mitigating factors in that quick and dirty trend, but it's just interesting to ponder how bad inflation can get before people will back off going to the movies so much that the industry can't even bring in more dollars.

That Q4 number is very high. I guess 3D/IMAX would have had a major impact (SW Ep 8, Thor, JL, Jumanji).

Average Price of a Movie Ticket Soars to $8.97 in 2017

Individual admissions, meanwhile, declined by more than six percent.
While the average price of a movie ticket in the U.S. rose to $8.97 in 2017, an increase of 3.69 percent, total domestic box office in North America dropped by 2.55 percent to $11.091 billion, according to information released Wednesday by the National Association of Theatre Owners.

Despite the increase in ticket prices, the overall decline in ticket revenue was caused by a drop in overall admissions, which fell by 6.03 percent to $1.236 billion.

While the average ticket price hit $8.97, it remained below the cost of an average ticket in 1977 when adjusted for inflation. Back then, a ticket cost $2.23, the equivalent of $9.40 in today's currency.

For the final quarter of the year, the average ticket price hit $9.18, up from $8.79 in the fourth quarter of 2016. Fourth-quarter ticket prices reflected the more expensive tickets sold for 3D and large-format screens which were in demand as well as the roster of adult-skewing, awards-contending films hitting the multiplex.

While the 6.03 percent drop in admissions was the steepest decline in the past decade, over those 10 years the number of annual admissions has actually bounced around the 1.3 billion mark — increasing four times, decreasing five times and staying even with the previous year on one occasion.

In terms of admissions, 2017 had a strong first quarter, with hits like Beauty and the Beast contributing to a record-setting Q1 in terms of both admissions and box office. But then the tide turned because of a disappointing summer, in which a number of sequels failed to perform up to expectations. A particularly downbeat August accounted for half of the summer 2017 shortfall, according to NATO. Moviegoing rebounded in the fourth quarter of the year to nearly the level of 2016, as 315 million tickets were sold compared to 319 million in fourth quarter 2016.

From the theater owners’ perspective, the see-sawing business during the course of 2017 only underscored the need for Hollywood to maintain a balanced, compelling release schedule throughout all 52 weeks of the year.

Movie tickets now are the most expensive relative to the CPI they have been since 1976. They are very nearly the most expensive they have ever been by that measure which was in 1971 when they were $10 in 2017 dollars.

And in certain states not keeping pace with the supposed economic "growth", people are feeling it. In my region, the mid-tier/non blockbuster films are suffering the most. People are more content to wait for it to appear on streaming, etc.

Going to the movies is still one of the cheaper forms of entertainment, but not like it uses to be.

Really interesting if it's reflective of more and more people making the move to discounted showtimes.

Probably a lack of IMAX/3D/etc tickets sold as most of the hits were purely 2D experiences between July and September.
