I love going to the movies, but I HATE how expensive it is. Seriously I could probably spend about $50 for one movie trip because, let's face it, you can't go to the movies without getting Popcorn, a drink, maybe some sour patch kids- you just can't. Only Problem is they are seriously overprices, but how much?
A business school professor at the University of California, Irvine analyzed how much the average movie theater charges for different food at their concession stand versus how much it costs . . . and it's really spectacular.
A large bucket of popcorn sells for an average of $8.15 . . . and costs them 90 CENTS.
A large soda sells for an average of $6.31 . . . and costs them 51 CENTS and that includes the cup, lid, and straw.
And a box of candy sells for an average of $4.25 . . . and costs them around $2.
So basically, pop your own popcorn, buy candy & soda at the store and sneak it in with the LARGEST purse you have.
