Wow, movie tickets there are expensive. Over here, our tickets are around $3 or 4$ (US Dollars).
Didn't watch this in the end, as my brother was discouraged by newspaper reviews from seeing it on the silver screen. Maybe I'll just borrow the DVD from a friend. I'm sure someone in my group's crazy enough over the main actor to buy it when it comes out.
They went up because our minimum wage went up, which is the reason I've always been against minimum wage hikes. Everything else goes up, so a person making minimum wage makes the same as she/he did before, maybe even less.
To be fair, I saw Eragon at a theater complex in a larger town about 30 miles away. The little one-screen theater in the small town I live in is like 5 dollars, but Eragon isn't playing there for another few weeks.
