Movie Concessions Mark Ups Revealed!

Movie theater food is OBSCENELY overpriced.  You knew that . . . but here's exactly how much.  It's amazing any movie theater could ever go out of business when they're working with THESE margins.

 

 

A business school professor at the University of California, Irvine analyzed how much the average movie theater charges for different food at their concession stand versus how much it costs . . . and it's really spectacular.  Check it out . . .

 

 

A large bucket of popcorn sells for an average of $8.15 . . . and costs them 90 cents. 

 

 

A large soda sells for an average of $6.31 . . . and costs them 51 cents including the cup, lid, and straw.  ($6.31 seems high to me, but even at $4 or $5 that's still a massive markup.)

 

 

And a box of candy sells for an average of $4.25 . . . and costs them around $2.  So in terms of markup, that's the worst deal for them.
