The kids have been desperately wanting to see Toy Story 3. Since I needed to do some window shopping at Target, we drove to Wichita Falls, TX (1.5 hours) to see it. We accidentally landed on a 3D showtime. The regular viewing was not for 2 hours which would have put us getting home at 10-11pm. We decided to just go see the 3D. The tickets were ridiculous expensive. THIS is why people don't go to theaters much anymore, making it a dying enterprise. They upcharged us $2.75 per ticket, bringing the grand total to over $57! Seriously? What a rip off.
The kicker of the whole thing is that 3D is not that pleasant to watch...it's blurry, and the glasses suck. And even though they upcharge you, you have to turn your glasses back in at the end. I don't want them, but why charge extra? Dumb.
On the good note, it was an awesome movie. A little darker than the others, and much more emotional. I was close to tears at the end. It was very funny, had a satisfying ending and was well worth seeing...but not for $57. Next time, we will wait until it hits the discount theatre, or maybe just buy it when it's released. Either option, or even both would have been cheaper than what we did. Uggg.
