I buy tickets online only when I think the movie/event is likely to sell out. A dollar a ticket doesn't seem like much if it means I know I'll get to see the movie when I want. When you compare the dollar fee to the service charges imposed on tickets for live performances, it seems like a relatively good deal. Example: To buy tickets for tonight's Austin premiere of Clerks II, you have to go through GetTix, the same company that The Paramount uses for concerts and live theater. The service charges and fees added $10 to an already steep $30 ticket. This is standard for theater and concert tickets. The question is: do moviegoers feel like they're getting the same value for money that they would at concerts or other special events? What do you think?
