Not only the snack price, they are now charging 350 Rs for weekend movie tickets & 250 Rs. for weekday movie tickets. Along with this the Popcorn & Pepsi prices are charged 75 Rs. each. This is totally unfair & the government needs to look into these private cinemas like PVR who is charging such an high price making it difficult for middle class families to watch movies with their families.
I am wondering that still people go & watch thus encouraging then to higher their prices.
I have stopped completely going to PVR & will urge people also to stop going & watch movies in local theaters rather than going to PVR. Spending 1000 bucks for a couple to watch movies on weekend is too much.

soft drinks and snacks — Higher Rate

Hi All,

Last week I went to movie at Thaluri Theatre @ ECIL X Road, In the intervel session i have ordered an pulpy orange(small) and a lays. The rate as per the Items are Pulpy Orange 20 Rs and Lays(15 Rs) but they have increased the cost of lays to 20Rs by pasting a small sticker on that and also have taken 25 Rs for pulpy orange, when i gave him 50 Rs intend he gave a change of 5 Rs.
when i asked them, the only statement i got "if you want to take plz take else leave it".

They are almost costing 5rs more per item.

Can someone take action on them.

Thanks & Regards
What is the cost of -

1 nachos
2medium popcorns and
3 small cold drinks
I cant understand or digest that a pack of medium or regular pop corn is RS.160 at PVR velachery
Really speaking pop corn is the cheapest snack one can afford. Are these pop corns made in heaven or by GOd.

What are the Govt food inspectors doing in this country or state .
where could these be made in to a complaints so that consumer rights could be established
i went to PVR Forum, Bengaluru on 4/23. The smallest available popcorn cup is priced at Rs.190 and if you add masala and cheese, it is costs about Rs.270! Popcorns are supposed to be affordable and it is unimaginable to pay more than what the ticket costs!

I dont know who does these checks and stops fleecing the customers.
They charged Rs 190 in PVR Hyderabad for a regular PEPSI. If there is any cause for it?

Tickets black

Mr mukesh and nisha at pvr cinemas is selling tickets in black
is ok to treat poor people by unfair means marketing and sales ?
Yeah, that's right. Price of snacks id really too high, i am totally agree with him and it should be down.
Are they putting gun on urs head to buy ???

dont buy if you feel that its high.. Common guys dont crib always for cost ... See the investment they did ..
Pvr snacks price has to be investigated by legal authorities. Ticket costing is 120each and snacks cost around 1000 just for 2 people and quality doesn't worth it
High Cost for regular soft drinks like Mirinda.. i.e., Rs. 190 for a regular glass. It should be reduced to half for common man. Else PVR should allow the people to carry snacks/soft drinks to carry with them while entering into cinemas.
This applies to almost all PVRs in Bangalore. If you are talking about the F&B prices, they are absolutely insane at PVRs and meant to loot the patrons. PVR folks, if you seeing - you are supposed to make profit but what you are doing is called profiteering (and very unethical).

I will tell you about yesterday (4th May 2018)

1 coffee - Rs 140
1 bottle of water (500 ml) - Rs 60
1 cheese popcorn (regular size) - Rs 270
2 samosas - Rs 120
1 Regular Pepsi - Rs 220

How on earth are these rates set and how are they even justifiable? Rs 60 for 500 ml of water? Really? The price of a simple filter coffee has gone up from Rs 80 some time back to Rs. 140 now. Heck, it has increased by Rs. 10 from my previous visit (less than a month ago). Government needs to place serious curbs. We citizens need to get this thing in check
