I don’t go to the movies much, especially as of late.. but my friend just brought this slight increase in prices to my attention. Are they doing it again? I thought the KD2.5 was a good price, then they went and made it KD3, and now KD3.5. Cinema companies should be trying to pull the people back into theaters, with the all the ongoing piracy, not push them away with price increases every now and then.

Thanks Bader

    from what i was told is that 3,5 KD is for movies which are digital, its a new technology that costs more. try supporting cinescape their trying their best to make a change but the gov. does not help that much πŸ˜‰

    this price is for the “Digital” screening of the movie, the original screen is still 3KD.
    However the new cenimas, Avenues and 360, show movies mostly on the “Digital” screens and whether there is a noticeable difference is arguable but is it worth the extra money? definitely not.

    Frankom hehe shda3wa dubai

    ……:) Digital huh?

    I just did a quick googling and it turned out that transforming a cinema into a digital one costs a lot. But then again the distribution cost per movie go down considerably. If that is true, then we shouldn’t be charged for a one time upgrade, when their variable costs has gone down.

    All of this aside. KD3.5 is too much for a movie. and I do support KNCC and appreciate their work, but that doesn’t mean I have to agree everything they do.

    super-sonic I think so too.

    M 3asa yaazlik bs?

    Piracy? Dude you’re in Kuwait… Ministry of communication asks ISPs to block services such as Skype and Fring so mobile phone companies make more profit. Now ministry of interior wants to ban bbm so ppl go back to using sms messages. dont forget to pay your bill too, or ministry of interior wont let you exist the country even if you want to travel for vacation or studying abroad!

    Ministry of information asks ISPs to block torrent sites, sharing sites, and some legal film and rental sites… not to mention their regular censorship that stops dvds and bluerays from coming into the country. movie theaters got nothing to worry about.
