$14.50 at Village

Although if i get those special passes (my mum gets stacks through her work) - a general ticket costs me $8.50.

I am 25 years old, but can pass for someone that is under 18 as i look younger than i am. The last few times i went to the movies i was asked if i really was an adult (i would like to try and play the child card one day... but they would probably crack it and not let me in for 'wagging school' :P)

[quote:f58a866de8="Jaydey"]I always go to a local place at Bulimba or Hawthorne (there's also one at South Bank and Victoria Point now) and it's only $5.70 for a student on weekends, and $5 Monday-Friday. Adults are $6.80.

Yep, the Cineplex places are good hey! You can get a ticket, popcorn and a drink for the same price as just a ticket at Birch Carrol and Coyle. I heard that the Birch closest to the Victoria Point cinema in our area is losing patrons because it is cheaper to go elswhere.
Sydney: Forgive me for being forthright, or female, but this is the way it's going to be.

Yeh they're great! I can get my ticket, a drink and a large popcorn for just over $10.

As an offside (but still on the subject of cheap prices) - I heard that the Kogarah Mecca had closed. It was fun going there and good value (especially when organising group bookings but over time I just drifted to Hurstville. What happened there does anyone know?

I get we're in difficult times, but JESUS CHRIST. Don't know what it's like in the rest of the country, but $17? I don't think so. And $20 for 3D movies. Add to that the insane popcorn and drink prices. That's just not gonna happen.
How are these cinemas still in business? It's like paying for a new DVD every time you go.

Our local cinemas are only $8.50 on peak for an adult. We're pretty Lucky with that.

Yeah They've steadily been climbing Here too. back in 2006, I remember the $13 being a bit steep, then by Mid 2008 it was $15, and last I went in July it had jumped to $17.....

Quite scary, these days when you think about it for just one person, including food+drink for a non-Gold Class flick, you need about $50 worth of ammo up your sleeve to make it through the experience... It's getting a bit of a joke, Haha. :D

I rarely go to the cinema any more.
Prices are $15-$16 here but if I was a regular I'd be buying the books, or clubs or whatever offer is around.

Last time we went was to the Premium Cinema. $35 per ticket :shock: (I had one freebie) + we made a date out of it and ordered food. Great way to go to the cinema - but once only for us cheap wads! :wink:

Two words: a rort. Independent cinemas for the win!
Is it just my local one, or do Hoyts not clean up the cinemas any more after a movie session?
