My wife and I recently went to see the movie "The Help" at a multiplex theater (A very good movie, by the way, and people applauded after the movie ended.). We had to stand in a line of around 50 people to buy our tickets that were $8 each for senior citizens. I looked back when we had our tickets and the line was still about 50 people long. So we went to the concession counter where there were a lot of people but also a lot of servers and got a medium pop corn ($7 and I would call it large) and a small soda ($5). Cost total was $28 to see the movie. There were many getting much more at the concession counter than us. And of course, if you weren't s senior citizen, the tickets cost more too.

My point is that for all the economic pain people are suffering these days there are a lot of people living it up at places like theaters.
