8, 9 Euros in an UGC (in France). And given the fact that the Euro is nearly equal to the dollar, slightly higer.

6.50 to 8... depending on where you go... i have to travel a good 30 miles at least, one way or the other...

the drive-in is still 5 bucks for adults and kids under 12 are free.

UGC up the road at one of those Mall structures is about £5.25!!
But if you make the efforted to go into the city its £3.50 at the Odeon. but that was a 11:30am (off peak) price. 
Well thats how much i payed for Dead Man's Shoes last movie i saw in november.

Liked to go at irregular times, Not open weekends
trying get a cinema to myself. Nice and quite
Don't have high tolerence for Popcorn graising = Large coke = 4X take a piss Jockeys.
And people who actuallly breath louder than a cinema digital sound system   ::) (had this once)

Small indy cinemas tend to be more my thing. People actually tend go there to watch films, can be a little pretentious audience some times, but up againist  Mr eat my on weight in MMs. No conquest  ;D

Poor Blueberry! you are so far the "winner".....
For your cinema price you can by an old film/new release DVD at least then you own the film and can watch it as many times as you want.

And to top it off he wouldn't have to put up with all those idiots who are too stupid or ignorant to keep their mouth shut or their mobile phone switched off! A couple of thousand years human history for that? Where's evolution when you need it?! ;D

Yesterday, I paid 9 euros to see The Aviator. Which amounts to $11,6968. And, yes, on top of that, a woman two rows behind me answered her cellphone and there was quite some talking going on behind me, as well as inapropriate giggling.

Just two questions David:
1. In which country do you live? 9 Euros is pretty much for a movie, almost twice as much as in Italy!
2. What about "The  Aviator": any good? Is worth the ticket?

The Aviator was ok, a good biopick Kate Blanchet had Kate Hepburn down pretty good, Leonardo did a good job too.  I wasn't disappointed then I wasn't expecting much the wife wanted to see it.

Yeah, but still - the best way to see a film is in the cinema - nothing quite like going to the movies...

And you gotta measure cinema prices with the income levels - but still I think almost $12 is waaaay over the top. And now they charge you an extra buck for reserving seats - shame on 'em.

The worst thing is that all the giant chains are choking the smaller independent cinemas - and are more about quantity than quality: "our screen is bigger than a football field", "our sound is the newest of the newest and will only blow your ears out", "there'll be seats like the ones on first class cross-atlantic flights and 3 cup-holders a seat" and so on.

And yet, I appreciate the space - I'm quite tall - 1,96 m. So there are times when I have to choose - small european films or good comfort? I remember one Sunday with a hangover from hell -  I chose comfort and I got Van Helsing. What a turd of a movie - but such is the price you'll have to pay at times - for comfort. Damn.

I was under the impression that I'd already answered this... apparently not.

1. I live in The Netherlands, also known als Holland.
2. The Aviator is good, but for a Scorsese it's a bit lacking, and the awards and nominations it's getting now makes it a bit overrated.
