Propecia is a one-a-day, FDA-approved, treatment for male pattern hair loss at the crown or in the middle of the scalp (androgenetic alopecia).

2008-05-28T13:18:00.000-05:00

I've been rocking the NetFlix for a while now, and quite frankly, you can't beat it! The girlfriend and I did go see the new Indiana Jones (disappointing) movie on Sunday, but only because both of us got in for $6ea.

As far as corn prices are concerned... I can't say I've been able to track them as easily as gas prices. It's easier to know what you're putting in your tank each time because it's the only thing on the bill. I haven't exactly been saving my grocery store receipts to see how much (if any?) corn has been going up.

2008-05-27T09:14:00.000-05:00

We don't go to the movies very often - it costs too darn much! We have to budget it in. But of course, when you go with the kids, you can't NOT buy popcorn and candy.

But I'll be the first to admit that I've snuck food in to the theater in my big purse before. Heh.

2008-05-26T23:07:00.000-05:00

LOL! Rock on, T. Please let me know how the movie theater people take your advice.

Unitl then, I'll be sitting my own tub-o-lard on my couch with my big screen and hi-def. Screw 'em. AND their popcorn too!

2008-05-26T20:51:00.000-05:00

A 30% increase because the price of corn has gone up? Give me a break. It already costs me more to get a bag of popcorn and a drink than the cost of the movie.

According to this page, the markup on a bag of popcorn is 500% or better (and I am pretty sure movie theatres have it on the better side - this site shows even better profit margins on popcorn - upto 93% or about 1400% markup).

I don't think the rising cost or corn kernels is driving ticket prices up 30%.

2008-05-26T19:02:00.000-05:00

I honestly don't remember the last time I went to the movie theater without getting half price tickets from the credit union. I also NEVER buy food products at the cinema. I'm a big proponent of the ever-so-classy let's sneak stuff in the giant purse.

Don't judge: I'm merely a school teacher. I'm not a highly paid postal employee like yourself :).

When I feel the need to be a victim of highway robbery, I merely go to a gas station and fill up my tank with gas. That does it for me . . .

When we were kids my mom would sneak in huge pursefulls of candies, sodas & whatnot. At least there were some movies worth seeing back then!

2008-05-25T18:55:00.000-05:00

I'm so with you on this rant. We don't go to the movie theater as often anymore.

First, there really isn't all that much that gets us excited enough to pay the $12 each per ticket. Not when I can buy the DVD in 3 months for less than $20, or watch the PPV for $3.

And second, when there's something that has us excited enough to fork that cash over we tend to cruise right on past the concessions. We can have a better meal after the film for what it costs for snacks at the movies these days.

It's amazing how many obscure reasons the producers of goods and the providers of services can find to raise prices.

2008-05-25T03:47:00.000-05:00

To go to a movie here is expensive - 8 euros - (about 10$) for a ticket. It's 5 euros for the morning or for student and kid prices, but a movie and popcorn will set you back 15 bucks here. Might as well wait and buy the DVD.

Picture if you can, a little boy, about 3 years old....screaming loudly in the middle of a movie PICK MY TEETH!

2008-05-24T22:46:00.000-05:00

I actually don't like theatre popcorn. So, I guess I'll be paying more for ticket because of a snack I don't even like. :( That said, i really don't go to the movies very often. Maybe a few times a year.

Articles like that can really drive you crazy.

2008-05-24T21:21:00.000-05:00

I don't make it to the theater very often, but cheapskate that I am, I've been known to smuggle a candy bar and a bottle of water in inside my purse or book bag. I gave up on the popcorn a long time ago since it's so expensive, and frankly, it's not that good anyway.

2008-05-24T20:59:00.000-05:00

This is, in the words of a friend of ours, bat-shit crazy. Time for a Jiffy-pop concession on a card table on the street! I seldom go to the movies---too pricey. I wait for DVD.
I will have a MTM post on the Peninsula Python this week (an a giveaway!). I actually already wrote it (this is NOT a trend).
Enjoy the weekend. It is finally sunny here in NE Ohio!

2008-05-24T20:01:00.000-05:00

That is freaking ridiculous. Sounds like an excuse if I've ever heard one. Personally, I don't really care that much for movie popcorn but I've always been weird. And the crap has always been way too expensive. I agree, time to put our foot down.

As if morons talking on their cell phones at the theatre wasn't bad enough to keep people from going.

I'm plannig of becoming a Netflixer as soon as I get rid of my DISH (next week!).

2008-05-24T15:16:00.000-05:00

Three cheers for Netflix!

And seriously, does the movie theater industry really need to give consumers another reason to stay home with their DVDs? So not smart.

2008-05-24T15:08:00.000-05:00

I, too, have become a Netflixer and given up on a $100 family trip to the movies. It's ridiculous.

2008-05-24T14:29:00.000-05:00

I am a NetFlixer and I rarely go to the movies and it is even rarer that I eat their high price fare. This post is more on theory. It just struck me as asinine to jack up ticket prices based on the popcorn market.

And yeah, I plan to get something up albeit nothing too spectacular.
