If you frequently go to watch movies in multiplexes, you may have to loose pocket soon. If multiplexes allow you to take food and drink items then you will have to pay 20-40% more than before. The hearing is going on in the Bombay High Court regarding allowing permission to transport food and beverage in multiplexes.
According to reports, if food and beverage is allowed to be taken in multiplexes, multiplexes will decrease the revenues from food and beverage business, which will be compensated by multiplexes by increasing ticket prices. That is, if you pay 200 rupees for cinema tickets then you may have to give up to Rs 240-280.
Food and beverage is more than 30% of the total turnover of large multiplexes such as PVR. In the first quarter (April-June) of the current financial year 2018-19, PVR has made a turnover of Rs 684.36 crore, and the share of food and beverage was 202.71 crore rupees. According to sources, there are many such viewers, because of the cost of food and beverages in multiplexes, because of expensive prices, they only watch movies, they do not eat and drink. But if food and beverages are allowed to be taken then surely the price of the ticket will increase which will be paid to all the audience.
