In the past few years, cinema ticket price has gone up very high in the UK. The prices of tickets vary in different cities and it also depends upon the popularity of the movie. The Film Distributors Association of the United Kingdom has found that there has been a steep increase in the prices of the ticket in the last five years. There are no regulatory bodies to control the price of tickets in the UK, but there are bodies that monitor the price. It has become difficult to assess the price of a cinema ticket. Although many cinema groups have introduced flexible pricing policies, individuals may not benefit from this. These schemes include ‘buy one, get one free’ or ‘buy family tickets at a huge discount’. The average price of a ticket in the UK is approximately $10.
The Young Perps UK Fiasco
The real discussion about prices of cinema tickets in UK started with the premiere of Young Perps series. The demand for the first episodes was so high, that cinemas had no choice but to raise prices even more. A lot of people got angry, because they really wanted to see the adventures of young guys stealing from shops and getting caught with it. The ways of punishing them fore such crime is also very controversial, so you can imagine that it causes quite a stir in the society. Maybe launching movies on Netflix/Amazon platforms isn’t really that bad idea after all?
