In NYC, it depends on the theater.  Manhattan doesn't have matinees and the prices are usually $10.50 or so.  Some theaters are a little cheaper,  but those are crappy ones. A couple are more.

In the boroughs you can get matinees for $6-8.50 but thats usually just first show, some are all shows before 1PM but they will start movies at 1:05 so no matinees for some movies LOL. IMAX is expensive, I forgot what it was.
But the best bang for the buck is the Planetarium Show at the Museum of Natural History.  That is $20 or so I think.
Broadway shows are crazy prices and off broadway are nearly as bad.

At the theater near where I go to college at, it's $6.25 for matinee.

But back home, I like to go to a one screen theater that still only charges $2.50. :) And they're able to get some movies pretty fast after they've been released.

Most places in the UK it's about £4 or £5 (about $7-8 I guess), which I don't find is too bad, specially when you sneak a bottle of Pernod in. Mind you I occasionally go to the NFT where a member's ticket is £6.99 (£7.99 non-members, £4.50 concessions) but it's worth it cos they show good stuff - I caught a new print of Mean Streets there a few weeks back for example.

$6 dollars in my hometown, family owned, up-state New York Theatre.

Haven't checked the prices at the places around my college.

That's about right Cigar Joe.  We used to, but they decided to "rennovate" it (i.e. tear it down and replace it with a department store of some kind).  I'm not overly upset, since the theater was crap (scratchy pictures, overpriced refreshments, more gum under the seats than has been produced by BubbleYum ever, etc.), and apparently another one is going to be built up town.  The only problem with that is, I'll probably be gone by the time it's finished.  :'(

It's perfect timing, large one...

I don't go there much often, because usually I'm not interested in the films they play. But I think it's about 60 CZK (about 2.70 dollars). While in big cinemas in Prague it's about twice as much or more (but I never go there, so I really don't know). The best is going to old films, because they are cheap and more interesting.  ;D

Groggy, our local cinema also has poor quality. ;) The sound fades away sometimes and so on... I remember that in Legacy of Incas the picture started to move from bottom to upside very quickly - something like old slides, but much faster.
But still I prefer going there than to Prague - one of the reasons is, that if I went to Prague, it would take me long time and I would get back home very late. Another reason is the price. And third thing is, that there usually aren't many people in our local cinema, so nobody's chatting during the film or anything like that.



There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.

down in our town we have a choice got to the Odeon costs between £5.00 to £6.00 but if you wait a bit the Playhouse here runs old movies mid week and its £2.00
when I say old movies just a few weeks ago they ran The Perfect Storm (pretty good on big screen)
but they have also shown Cassablanca, the original Cape Fear and the De Nero version as a double bill which was great.
They bill these things in a semi arty festival that runs 90 percent of the year.
Next one up I am gonna catch is Von Ryans Express

In Frisco, matinee is 6.75 to 7. Night ticket is around $10.

In Japan, ticket price for firsrt runs is average $20 or more. Just imagine, if you have a date and have to treat your date.

  Just saw The Last Kiss Friday night and paid $8.50 for it.  Matinee showings are a little less, usually around $6.50 instead.
