Cinemas have little control over the ticket prices - it's the film companies and distributors who decide.

Well I remember when the cinema in Borehamwood used to cost quite a lot cheaper on ticket prices than the Galleria. Then I stopped going there when they bunked their prices up, unfortunately I feel they realised they grew in popularity and wanted to see how far they could push it. I do agree, I'm pretty sure most of their income is through making people pay £4 plus for popcorn, one of the cheapest snacks to produce.

I'm going by what my friend, who's a supervisor at a cinema, tells me.

There are differences in ticket prices for the same reasons there are differences in petrol prices i.e running costs. It's essentially a cartel though.

As for the food prices, it's no different to anywhere else that sells food. I used to work for Burger King, and it's shocking when you find out how little their stock costs them.
