drive in movieSummer movie season is approaching!  

As you settle in to watch the man of steel save the world, see how monsters learned how to scare, or watch thick-necked men drive around in the millionth Fast and Furious movie, you might notice that these flicks are taking a heavy toll on your wallet, and they’re only getting more expensive.

Regal Entertainment CEO David Ownby said that the price of 2-D movies will rise 3-4% this year, as it has over the past few years. 

3-D effects can add up to $5 to overall ticket costs. Movie prices vary widely based on location.  NerdWallet has listed the most expensive and cheapest cities to watch your favorite summer flicks.  The prices listed are for first-run new releases shown 6-10 pm on Saturdays at indoor theaters.
