Dear Hollywood,

I'm a big fan and happy to be writing you, but I wish I was for a happier reason. You see, I was thinking of taking my family to the movies this weekend, and then I remembered that box office prices have gone up.

Way up.

Numerous media outlets reported that last Friday, according to the investment firm BTIG, prices for adult admission to 3-D movies increased by 8.3% at box offices nationwide. Regular two-dimensional movie prices rose 4%, on average, and ticket prices for IMAX jumped 10%.
