    I think your numbers are off. The cheapest film I’ve ever seen this year in 5 major U.S. cities was $10.50. Also, $2 for an at home drink? A 2 liter bottle of coke is only $3 and would supply the whole family. Microwave popcorn: $3/ a box of three bags. In other words – your point should be even stronger – you’re understating the costs of going out to movies and overstating that of staying in.

      You’re right Mario, but we’re doing so as a fair average. No matter how you look at it, staying in is a better offer in terms of finances.
