Aren’t Pop Corn And Cold Drinks Costly At Movie Theatres?

Every time I purchase pop corn and cold drink or any other combo I feel it is not a genuine amount that they are charging. Today, during interval at ‘Commando – One Man Army’, I purchased a regular pop corn and a small coke for Rs. 225. It is not that couldn’t afford, but I always feel deceived at this act of the multiplex owners. It may sound silly, but shouldn’t there be a regulation on maximum price limits for fixed quantities. 

Selling things at increased cost is not a newly affair. During our school days, when there were no multiplexes

around, they used to sell patties for an extra rupee. Later during our college time we used to buy pop corn, cold drink and even water at increased cost and now everything is purchased at such a high cost that everyone knows.

This is not a complaint exactly as people are equally responsible for buying those stuff at increased prices yet I feel sometimes, is this


not a form of corruption. I myself have purchased eatables from the cinema theater many a times and why not. After all, we go there to have fun.

It is not that all cinema halls are that costly. There are some groups where it is not that costly. It also depends on the city you are located in. For example watching movie in Mumbai is cheaper than watching movie in Delhi. Location in a particular city also matters. For example watching movie in South Delhi is far costly than in other parts of the city.

My point is – just because the people can pay, it is not right to charge anything. Genuine price for genuine item is what a good businessman does.  I am not sure how many would agree on my point. It is not about money (though it is) but about the practices.
