So if you have ever purchased a DVD you will have had to sit through the anti piracy advertisement. It’s not destroying the film industry essentially. It represents people fighting back against greed. Cinema tickets are through the roof. Rather than it being a hobby going to the cinema it has become a rare treat. I do understand this but I am really interested in films and I would like to go to the cinema every week but I can’t. Its far too expensive.
Why do cinema’s charge so much? Is it the greed of multiplexes? No it isn’t. Looking at the budgets of films it is the industry to blame. For example Robert Downey Jr got paid 50 million dollars for his role in Avengers Assemble. Of course many people would happily be given that sum of money for that role. Because of actors getting paid huge sums of money this puts pressure on the studios to break even and therefore pushes up the prices of the cinema tickets. Not only that food at the cinema is through the roof as well. It costs too much to go to the cinema.
If cinema tickets were cheaper I would go every week maybe even a couple of times but until the industry makes changes to their budgets. However we cannot stop big business and I do not think things are going to change.
Some cinemas offer customers a monthly card which allows you to see unlimited films which is likely the only way you can save money. Still the problem of the price of food comes into the equation. So I do not blame people for piracy. Most people buy pirate DVDs to save money. Anti-piracy adverts claim the experience is not the same, but they should make it affordable. Also this may encourage more people to go to the cinema and therefore they can make more money.
