Broadway's Ticket Prices Make Movies' Look Cheap

Although the average price of a movie ticket rose by half from 1997 to 2007 (to $6.88 from $4.59 -- with pricing for children and seniors included in the calculation) moviegoing remains a bargain when compared with the costs of other forms of entertainment. The Associated Press observed Tuesday that tickets for the Broadway revival of All My Sons, starring Katie Holmes, John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson will be priced at $116.50, about the same as Equus, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Richa rd Griffiths. Tickets will have a top price of $251.50 for "best seats in the house" while holiday weeks will see a spike in prices to $301.50.
