Theatres, in general, are way overpriced, IMO...Why, I remember (not too long ago) when you could see a matinee for 5$ per person, now you're lucky if admission is less than 8$...not to mention that you have to watch close to 30 minutes of ads (which the theatre makes money on) before the movie even starts. I don't even bother buying food, the prices are outrageous.
Sure the theatres need to get their money from somewhere, but they just keep on milking it and milking it for all they can get.
P.S. X2 was so wicked, I love Alan Cumming!
