    Under $7 on average? :confused:

    I'm going to the wrong theaters ...or just going at the wrong time ...or maybe just in the wrong city.

    People were bootlegging movies long before now. It's the movie quality.

    I agree with Terry.

    Movie's have gotten repetitive and bland recently. The downfall for me was SM3. :down

    Doesn't help that my theater's are 9 bucks, and 7 for matinee.

    Pirate movies are only crappy when you dunno what you're downloading. Reading coments is key.

    Completely agree, if i know the movie will suck somewhat im not going to see it in theaters, il download it watch it, and it will suck than id be happy that i didn't shell out 10 bucks for a dam ticket.

    i only see movies in the theaters when i know for a fact itl be worth it.

    If I really want to see a movie, I bite the wallet, and go to the theater.

    If I really want to see a movie, and I don't want to fork out 8 bucks, I wait until dvd.

    If I really want to see a movie, and I don't want to fork out 8 or 4 bucks, I say "it's worth a download."

    To be honest, the movie industry has the same problem the music industry has, and it's not "pirates"; it's releasing absolute drivel and then wondering why no one wants to see it and they lose their shirt on the production. Make films people actually want to see and they'll go see them. Pretty damn simple. Just because no one went to see your soaring epic doesn't mean they're just waiting to download it. In fact, it probably means that your soaring epic sucked ass and shouldn't have been made in the first place. Get a grip.

  24. Ticket prices have nothing to do with it. I work at a theater myself and it's 6.00 for a matinee and 8.50 for after matinee. People still fork out the cash or credit cards to see a movie despite it being crappy or great. So, I think it's the quality of the films themselves and the overall disappointment after so much hype the film was given.

    I know where I work is just one theater, but during the holidays, we had every show sell out and it was films that I know no one gave a **** about seeing. But because they had nothing to do they're willing to hand over 8.50 to see P.S. I Love You, This Christmas, or Awake.

    to me it is... yes, the quality of the film does count for something, but I don't have that kind of money lying around the house to just spend needlessly, even if it is an incredible movie

    Food is more important than a movie
