Inelastic demand is the reason why movie theaters charge less in the afternoon than in the evening.
According to the National Association of Theater Owners, the price of theater tickets cost an average of $5.39 in the year 2000. That would take into consideration the discount theaters that charge $1.00 for the second run movies, and the IMAX theaters that charge about three times the going rate for their big screen specials. It also takes into consideration the vast differences between small town prices and the big city prices.
A matinee usually begins sometime around noon and ends sometime around 6pm. :) It differs for different places though. Some may be 4:30 and some may be 6. Glad i could help. Show time : 3 PM to 6 PM ( 1500 to 1800 )
it depends on where you are because alot of theaters has different prices. some cheap and others expensive

It depends on the theater that you go to. Different theaters charge different prices.
Because popcorn is sold in different sizes.
Most theater prices don't change price from week to weekend. Many theaters have day time (or matinee) prices and charge more at night. Beyond that you will need to specify which of the thousands of theaters you are asking the prices for; chances are you will find that information easily on their individual websites.
All retailers are allowed to set their own prices with one exception: Price Gouging laws. However, since theaters price gouge every day, they don't violate that law, which applies to jacking up prices in emergency situations. As long as there are people willing to pay the prices theaters charge, nothing will change.
It varies from city to city.

Movie Theaters actually make most of their profit on food and beverages. As long as people are willing to pay these prices, nothing will change.
Typically, the seats for watching different movies have the same price. In any case, the price varies according to region, and even within the same city, different movie theaters may charge different prices.
why do different tag agencies in ok. charge different prices
