I saw a couple of news reports on Friday that AMC movie thearess are raising their prices $1.50 per movie.
I thought AMC was already the most expensive biggest ripoff in the business anyways, and have stopped going to them. We used to go for awhile when they were the first in the area to open a 30-theatre stadium seating showcase. But, the other theatres have all built stadium seating as well as other amenities that they don’t have (reclining seats is one example), and have all stayed lower i nprice.
This price increase news will make AMC even more of a non-destination for the Beagle household. In fact, Mrs. Beagle saw the news report and was outraged! You know it’s bad when Mrs. Beagle gets upset!
We love going to movies during the afternoon during the traditional ‘matinee’ time. A year or so ago we were looking around, and AMC no longer has matinee times. The chain we favor (MJR Theatres) has matinees until 5pm or 6pm and even has ‘twilight’ rates that are even lower between 4pm-6pm, but the best AMC could offer is to offer a slight discount before noon. Gee, thanks!
They said that with their increase, their tickets for a 3-D movie in Manhattan will be $19.50 per ticket.
$19.50 for a movie?
I remember when crossing the $10 mark was a shocker. Now we’re near the $20 mark.
Nice work, AMC Theatres, you win the biggest ripoff of the wee kaward! Proud, proud day!Copyright 2017 Original content authorized only to appear on Money Beagle. Please subscribe via RSS, follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or receive e-mail updates. Thank you for reading.
