As I said, I never had this negative experience with cinema, not even phones or noisy kids. And I really enjoy the big screen and sound.
It seems that the margin made by the theatre on tickets is minimal and the studios charge big money to provide the films, so high priced snacks and expensive arcade games are the only way to keep the movie house going.
I don't find the food and drink so expensive because really I can go the whole movie with nachos and sauce. Even tho I mostly eat it before the movie even starts
... But once the movies is running I enjoy my self too much to worry about food or drinks
I mean sure, it is expensive but the low ticket price compensates for that.
