I'm sick of seeing the movie cost entertainment value comparison, so in my head any time someone references it I've started picturing myself watching Star Wars on opening night with a hundred other wide eyed compatriots.

It makes me happy.

The time/cost ratio for entertainment (whether its movies or games) only makes sense for people with copious amounts of free time to waste that consider spent time as the reward instead of the cost of entertainment media.

Opportunity Cost.

I can't quite remember what that means, but I'm sure it applies here.

I'm flying ($210) to Austin with my wife and daughter to watch Star Wars with my other kids that live there. We are getting a hotel room ($600) and renting a car ($330). We are going to my favorite theater, the Drafthouse ($70), and eating and drinking there during the movie ($120 estimated at this point).

All told, seeing the new Star Wars movie with my kids at my favorite theater will cost me $1330. Worth every penny.

Surprisingly, this is not even close to the most expensive movie experience of mine. I once paid about $72000 to see one movie semi-regularly.

I do not recommend it.
