In economics, there are demand curves and supply curves. In microeconomics, these exist and are unique to each person and circumstance. Why the hell am I talking about economics? Meh, it just came to mind in thinking about the wide range of price points at movie theaters.
Take a look at these prices:
$11.85 - full price online
$10.50 - full price in person
$7.65 - matinee price
$6.20 - first movie of the day
$5.35 - Wednesday anytime
Let’s say you go out on a date to the movies, that turns into:
What if you go on four dates to the movies?
What’s the point of all these numbers? You can see the same movie in the theater at five different price points. You can pay full price or less than half-price. Same movie. Same theater. Same popcorn. Same candy. Same soda.
Take your pick.
