Five years ago I started saving every movie ticket stub. I didn’t really have a reason, but knew I’d think of one some day. I still haven’t thought of one, but today I decided to log them in a spreadsheet and put them on a timeline.
In all, I’ve spent around $900 on 98 movies in the theatre over the last 5 years, which was a bit shocking to me. The most expensive single viewing was a 3D IMAX showing of Tron for $16.75, and the cheapest was an early afternoon showing of Baby Mama for $5.
80% of the showtimes were after 7pm and 27% were after 10pm. 68% were on weekends, with Sunday as the most popular day of the week to see a movie.
