Why AMC is charging higher prices for ‘The Batman’ tickets

AMC Theatres are planning to charge higher ticket prices for the Robert Pattinson superhero flick when it opens this Friday, March 4.

The cinema chain is experimenting with variable pricing for films, meaning they want to charge more money for certain, presumably higher-budget movies.

AMC’s CEO Adam Aron announced the news on Tuesday during a web call about the company’s quarterly profits: “Currently, our prices for ‘The Batman’ are slightly higher than the prices we are charging for other movies playing in the same theaters at the same time,” he said.

Aron then said that the transition follows a few years after they raised weekend prices for some of its locations in the United States, Deadline reported.

“This is all quite novel in the United States, but actually AMC has been doing it for years in our European theaters. Indeed, in Europe we charge a premium for the best seats in the house — as do just about all sellers of tickets in other industries — take sports events, concerts and live theater, for example,” he explained.
