For those of us living in large cities, heading toa movie theater is almost akin to placing a down payment on a house. Tickets for evening showings regularly exceed $15, and that's not even counting premium theaters or IMAX screens. A person has to save up just to see their favorite superhero on the big screen.
That's why the latest report on ticket prices from The Hollywood Reporter totally stunned us. According to new numbers, the current average cost of a movie is a mere $8.12. That's down from an average price of $8.30 in the fourth quarter of 2015.
