One of the favorite hobbies in Mexico is the assistance to film functions, since they take hundreds of families to fantastic worlds due to modes that fit the circumstances. However, in these times something very unfortunate has been reported, that companies gradually increase their collection figures due to the issue of inflation.
According to the data collected by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography , the price of film tickets saw a 30% increase in the rate between 2019 and 2022. It is mainly due to the profits that must be recovered, since in 2020 the best known establishments (Cinépolis and Cinemex) had to close through the pandemic.
A general ticket in the movie theaters used to cost $ 79 mx at the end of 2019, which rose at the beginning of 2022 to about $ 87 mx, all probably based on the lack that took place in 2020 and 2021. This is also reflected in more rooms more Faces such as VIP and experiences in 4DX, the latter currently have a price of $ 200 mx.
Here a table with the approximate percentages:
On the other hand, tickets linked to Matiné’s functions also saw an increase in price, and now they do not differ so much from normal schedules that usually cost about $ 85 mx, being normally 10 pesos cheaper. To this is added that the early hours to achieve this price are limited to being available only at 11:00 a.m.
But not everything is limited, because the cinephiles that are more recurring to this type of entertainment confirm that food combos have substantially rise their price. Some have tried to contact Cinépolis to know the concrete reason behind all this, but the company has only limited themselves to commenting that they are concentrated in reactivating the usual activities.
