Man Suing Over High Cost of Movie Theater Popcorn

Sick of paying extremely high costs to enjoy some popcorn during the movies? One Michigan man is, and he is doing something about it.

FOX News Radio’s Bill Vitka reports:

Audio clip:

The price of movie theater popcorn may be outrageously high, along with everything else at the concession stand.

So high that a Michigan man is filing a class-action suit to end what he says is price gouging.

Joshua Thompson heading to court because the local movie house in Livonia told him he cant bring his own soda and candy into the local AMC.

If he wins you can bet on copycat lawsuits, but there’s a wrinkle. Theater chains are likely to argue that high prices are in your best interest because it’s the high price of popcorn and candy that keeps the price of the movie ticket low.
