Randy and I saw Avatar in 3D on Saturday night. I really liked the movie. It was very predictable but I still really enjoyed it. It was fun to see a movie in the theater. I haven't done that with Randy for a long time. I was shocked however, that it cost us 11 dollars a ticket to see it. I guess it has been a while since I have paid for a movie theater ticket. Also, I don't understand why I saw so many kids at the theater (especially for this movie). It was late and there were tons of kids waiting for the next showing of Avatar at 9:00. It is a 3 hour movie for goodness sake. Maybe the parents thought the kids would fall asleep or something, but I wouldn't want to pay $7.50 for my kid to fall asleep during a movie when they could fall asleep at home at a decent bed-time. A babysitter doesn't cost as much as a movie ticket. But this bodes another question for me. Why exactly is it that my ticket costs $11 while kids and seniors are $7.50? Do we not see the same movie? Do we not take up the same amount of space? Why can't we just have a flat rate of $9.25 per person? Any person? I just don't get it. Feel free to enlighten me.
side note: I think I may have been married too long. As I was pre-selecting our seats online, I found that we could sit together in the front or diagonally from each other in the middle. I chose diagonally. I would rather sit close but not next to my husband in a "good seat" for a 3 hour movie then cuddle up next to him close to the screen. I have a feeling I may have chosen differently had we just recently been married or dating.
