Last week was significant.
I have been going to the cinema most of my life.
To see the new Wolverine flick Logan I did something I've never had to do before.
I paid over Ten Pounds!
It was in fact £10.20 to get into the local Cineworld.
This was a normal 2D showing for one. I dread to think what 3D IMAX costs or how much a family would have to pay!
Its ironic as on the way my friend and I were just discussing the rise of so-called firesticks, which allow new films to be seen illegally in the home on the day of release in the cinema and sometimes before!
Piracy like this is clearly getting to the film industry. At the end of Logan there was a written plea for people to continue going to the cinema as films provide jobs. 15,000 people worked on Logan for example.
As a die-hard cinema-goer I will carry on going to the flicks because I love the big screen but the admission price breaking through the Ten Pound ceiling is cause for thought.
How much is cinema admission in your neck of the woods?
