Princess and I are huge Marvel Comic fans. Sadly we missed The Wolverine on the big screen. I have no good excuse, time just seemed to have gotten away from us.
Today we went to see Thor 2. Princess has been nagging me for months; making sure I was aware that we were going. We are not missing this one, she told me often.
I am not a huge fan of going to the movie theatre.
I always buy movie passes from Costco. This is the only way I can justify going to the cinema. The passes are $25-ish and include general admission for 2 along with 2 drinks and a medium popcorn.
As I was standing in line waiting for my turn at the cashier, I was shocked to see what it costs to go to the movies now-a-days. Yes I have become an old lady. 😉
For adult general admission:
Regular 2D $11.25
Regular 3D $14.25
UltraAUX 3D $16.25
D-BOX 3D $22.25
I swear I have been living under a rock. I thought movies just came in 2D and 3D.
UltraAUX is a bigger screen, reserved rocker seating and better sound. D-BOX means your seat moves. I am not sure that’s worth an extra $11 to me. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I am not a fan of 3D. I don’t like the feeling of moving when I’m not or things flying at me. I can only imagine that coupled with a moving seat. Thanks, but no thanks.
In addition to the rising costs, I really missed being able to press pause while watching a movie. By the end of Thor 2 I was twitching in my seat. Then I had to wait for the extra scenes. 😉
As usual, Princess and I enjoyed this movie. We are now patiently waiting for April to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
