The cost of a $4 movie
The nearest movie theater is 35 minutes down the road. That’s actually pretty good as it’s at least an hour drive to the next closest. It had been closed, but a local guy bought it and is doing all he can to make a go of it.
Monday is $4 night. Pretty good deal for a first run movie. My wife and I went to see “The Avengers.” 2 people X $4 each = $8. Cheap night out. Better add in $5 or $6 dollars for gas money.
On the way over, my wife pointed out that her sandals are broken and the store across the street from the theater sells good sandals. It’s not easy to find decent sandals for the lovely wife. She’s had foot surgery in the past and is also sensitive to latex. Cheapo sandals are right out of the question. Add another $65 dollars or so to the bill.
Back to the theater. $8 for both of us to get in, but the poor guy can’t be making any money at that rate. Just to keep him in business, we thought it best to pick up a few snacks, about $10 worth.
How are we doing here? Still under $100? Not bad for $4 movie night. Good thing the movie theater is in a one horse town and we couldn’t go out for a couple of drinks after the movie.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
