actually...Movies need their snacks to have that 500% mark up. That is the ONLY profit that the building itself makes. The ticket prices goes straight to the people who make the movies, the studios, the producers. The concessions stand is the only profit margin that the theater can have. So well..yeah, they have no choice because the studios take all the ticket cost. (aside from the 3d surcharge, the building will make minor profit on that, though 30% goes to buying the glasses.)

The problem here is that they're too damn broke to lower the food prices, and I'm too damn broke to buy the food.

that's the problem with these ******* businesses today, they always pass down their own **** down to you so they aren't affected at all by new taxes, etc

That's capitalism 101 man, if you have a problem with that you might be in the wrong country.

That's not entirely true. Theaters usually have agreements to where all ticket profits go to who made the movies for a certain period of time , like say, the first week for example, then the theater itself gets profit from tickets after that.
