Did you miss your friendly cinematic pals?
We have emerged from our coffins and are backkkkkk! Well rested and of corpse headed to the movies! In our latest episode, we take a question from an avid listener seeking advice on ticket prices.
Dear I Saw it in a Movie,
This past weekend I was pleasantly surprised to find 2001: A Space Odyssey playing at an AMC near me. I was immediately interested in seeing it but I was a bit taken back by the fact that tickets were $20 (and even more so in other regions). I don't normally take issue with paying to see old films in theaters again, especially if they're presented in 35mm, or playing at an independent theater, but this strikes me as egregious.
Where do you come down on pricing for releases such as this? Do you look past the full admission price because it's a unique opportunity to see a film on the big screen, or do you feel like it ought to be a little less given the fact the film is 50 years old now, and readily available on a number of platforms.
Thanks for reading my question
