Movie Ticket Prices

Post by Renier » Thu Jan 20, 2005 11:06 am

Coming from a disussion on another forum, I was wondering what movie ticket prices cost in other countries. Looking on the web I couldn't find any clear answers (except US avg price is $6.25 and NYC goes up to over $10). So I though I might try and start a thread here since this forum has users from all over the world.

Can you please post to this thread the price or price range of a movie ticket in you country/city.

In South-Africa movie prices range from R25 to R37 ( $4.11 to $6.08 )

The movie prices in Germany vary from €4 to €7.70 (it's also depending on the theatre and length of film), which is about $3.10 and $5.96.

In Québec city, prices are different according to the day of the week and to the cinemas.

Tuesday and Wednesday, in old cinemas, price is 5,50 $CAN ($4.50); in high tech cinemas (about 5 years old), other days, price is 11,00 $CAN ($9.00). In the only one all digit cinema, price is 6,00 $CAN ($5.00) before 18 h and 8,00 $CAN ($6,50) after 18 h.

P.S. In old cinemas, seats are less comfortable and not in steps and the sound is not as good as in new cinemas.

According to Universal Currency Converter:

  • €4 = US$5.20 (6,36 $CAN)

  • €7.70 = US$10.00 (12,25 $CAN)

  • €8 = US$10.40 (12,73 $CAN)

  • €10 = US$13.00 (15,91 $CAN)

oooops..........

Bruno is right. Bateman and i made the same mistake.
During the short time the euro exists the dollar-euro value changed very much.
In the beginning of 2002 the dollar and the euro were almost equal.
Then 1 euro went down to 0,80 $, but in january 2005 1 euro did 1,35 $.

So comparing international prices in euro's and dollars is not the most reliable method.
(maybe we should switch to the big mac index)

At Empire Studio 12 in St. John's (includes HST):
Adult (18-64) $10.50
Youth (14-17) $8.75
Children (3-13) $5.50
Golden Age (64+) $5.50

Mon-Thur: Matinee & Evenings $7.25
Fri-Sun Matinees $7.50
That's CAD.
In USD that converts to about:
Adult (18-64) $8.60
Youth (14-17) $7.16
Children (3-13) $4.50
Golden Age (64+) $4.50

Mon-Thur: Matinee & Evenings $5.94
Fri-Sun Matinees $6.14
I find $10.50 (plus whatever I spend on concessions) to be pricey, so I don't go to the movies too often.

Seems that we generally can't complain about our prices in SA.

Malaysian prices

Post by lemming » Tue Jan 25, 2005 7:16 am

Movie ticket prices in Malaysia range from RM7 to RM12, with night shows and weekend/public holiday shows being the more expensive ones.

In US$, that would be between $1.85 to $3.16.

That might sound cheap, but note that most of the population here earns below RM2000 a month (US$526), So that's about equivalent to Americans paying US$10 for a movie.

However, ticket prices are kept relatively affordable because of the high rates of DVD and VCD piracy in Malaysia. Competition is good :wink:

Is it the same thing for the transportation, the food, the lodging?

During the last months, I often read positive things about SA. Cape town seems to be a modern town with a lot of things to see and to enjoy.

SA could become a destination for tourists. For us, who live in the north, we are looking for places where, among other things, there is plenty of sun. SA could become an alternative to Cuba where half a million people go every year.

Tourism is already pretty big especially in Cape Town.

Prices were very low for foreigners about two years ago when the Rand was at R12 to the US$. These days is it R6/$, but I believe it is still fairly cheap for foreigners.
