Man Sues AMC Over Snack Prices

We’ve all lamented the high price of going to the movies–not just the tickets but the concessions.

Now one movie fan is trying to do something about it. The Detroit Free Press reports that Joshua Thompson has filed a class action law suit in Wayne County Circuit Court against his local AMC theater in hopes of forcing theaters statewide to dial down snack prices.

“He got tired of being taken advantage of,” said Thompson’s lawyer, Kerry Morgan of Wyandotte. “It’s hard to justify prices that are three- and four-times higher than anywhere else.”

American Multi Cinema, which operate the AMCs in the area, wouldn’t comment on the lawsuit.

“It’s a loser,” said Gary Victor, an Eastern Michigan University business law professor. He said state Supreme Court decisions in 1999 and 2007 exempted most regulated businesses from the Michigan Consumer Protection Act.
