The rising costs of movie tickets and concession items have many staying at home rather than attending movies at theaters. A survey conducted by the American Association of Retired People show that 40% of seniors no longer attend films because they can no longer afford the prices. Fewer sold movie tickets tends to cause some panic to movie executives, who earn most of the profits from sales of these. Fewer people going to films, and increasing expense of making films both contribute to higher prices for movie tickets.

The expense of concession stands has much to do with the way in which movie studios are reimbursed by local theaters. In the first week of a films release, the studio may make as much as 90% of the revenue from sales of movie tickets. So while movie tickets are high priced, they are not benefiting the theater tremendously. Each subsequent week the film brings greater revenue to the theater. So seeing second run films tends to mean one is giving more money to the theater and less to the studio.

Maybe there is also a link between the rising costs in relation to bootlegging films. This can cost the studios huge amounts of money as well and maybe they need to make up the loss somehow?

Rising price in tickets is due to now more furnished Theaters and also the costs incurred in making a movie and the guess of business it will make by drawing/attracting the audiences to the theaters .
