Theater Ticket Prices To Increase

According to Retro Hive, the increase in interest in 3D movies and increase in attendance for this special gimmick is giving theaters the crazy idea they can charge more for tickets. If its not bad enough that theaters want to charge up to 26% more for 3D movie tickets, supposedly to counterbalance the "high expenses" of running 3D technology on digital projects, they're looking to raise the prices on normal-vision films as well. Some theaters have described this price bump as testing the grounds to see if audiences will pay. Oh, I imagine they'll pay alright. Expect to see a large increase in the sales of retail-sold 3D glasses and an even bigger explosion of internet piracy.
