U.S. Box Office Hits Longest Modern Slump - Yahoo! News
Big surprise that ticket sales are slumping given that tickets are up over $7 per person in the evening and concession prices are through the roof. For the price of a matinee ticket you can rent a DVD for the whole family to watch. You just need some patience, and if you really wait you can many times pick up these movies at your library for free. With shrinking entertainment dollars people are not willing to pay $28 just to get the family of four in the door and maybe another $30+ for food & drink.
