Grrr. Last night (and this morning), the local news announced that Famous Players, one of the big movie theater chains in Canada, was "simplifying" it's pricing structure. Regular evening shows have dropped by around a buck. It's now 10.95 for an adult ticket. Period. However, there are now no "cheap Tuesdays" (a long-running deal) and no cheap matinee tickets. $10.95 across the board. They say that this is being done "for the customers" as their previous ticket-pricing structure was "confusing". Confusing. Yah. Tell me another one! What the hell was confusing about Tuesdays and afternoon shows being cheaper than 12 bucks? *sigh* In the aftermath, Cineplex Odeon (the OTHER major theater chain) has announced they'll be doing the same. (I guess this price structure has been used "successfully" elsewhere in Canada.) Yet another reason for me to avoid the theaters, and stick to DVD.
