Filmgoer Sues Over High Snack Prices
So this guy named Josh loves to go the movies but he hates the prices theaters charge for concessions like pop and candy, so he finally snapped!
He filed a class action in Wayne County Circuit Court against his local AMC theater in hopes of forcing theaters statewide to dial down snack prices.
“He got tired of being taken advantage of,” said Thompson’s lawyer, Kerry Morgan of Wyandotte. “It’s hard to justify prices that are three- and four-times higher than anywhere else.” Amen!
Although consumer experts predicted that the case will be dismissed, it struck a chord with moviegoers, who said they’re tired of being soaked on movie munchies – and this is why we sneak in stuff jammed under our coats and we look like the stay-puffed marshmellow man when we go in to the movies!
I say – GO JOSH!
