10-quirky-economic-indicators: Personal Finance News from Yahoo! Finance (http://finance.yahoo.com/banking-budgeting/article/107186/10-quirky-economic-indicators?mod=bb-budgeting)

Just saw that on Yahoo!'s homepage- 'Strange ways to foretell the state of the economy' The cinema one is understandable, perhaps in the USA, but the other day I paid 9 to get into the pictures!! :thud:- Not exactly your average "Recession busting price!"

as for the cinema price.. over here, we pay about 10usd for VIP cinemas... they have lazyboy type seats, waiters and some even provide a blanket and a travel pillow...

regular prices are at about 5usd

The vue local to us costs 7.50 each, and an extra 1.50 cos it was a 3D film!

We went to the chesire oaks one and it was even dearer-9.50 each.
