The price of food seems proportionate to the price of tickets. I rarely go to the movies at all anymore because IMO $12 is way too much for a movie, then the additional $15 for food just kills me.
Pay-per-View Movie: $4.99
Homemade bag of popcorn: ~$1 (if you buy the microwaveable bags)
Glass of Water: Free, courtesy of Brita
Not dealing with high prices, long lines, screaming children, fatty to the left munching on nachos....
