That's also the way I understand it.  They make their profit on
concessions.  Unfortunately, that means that a "large" popcorn, which most
likely cost 75 cents to produce, is sold for $9.  And the soft drink to go
with that?  $6.

They complain about attendance at cinemas being down.  While there are some
movies that definitely benefit from the big-screen experience, spending $30
on two tickets plus another $20 on a large popcorn and two drinks means we
only go to a theatre once in a great while.
