It's been like that for a while at my cinema

Alot less people are going than they used to ( and this is a HUGE 12 screen cinema) as a standard adult Ticket is £7.50, £5.50 for a child

A small popcorn and coke set me near to £6 when i saw Iron man Yesterday

I was only charged £4.00 to see iron man at The Empire cinema in Newcastle.The last time I went to the cinema I was charged £7.50 for American Gangster.

The food and drink still costs too much...£2.25 for a bottle of orange juice is a disgrace

Just throwing my tuppence worth in.
Last movie I went to see at the cinema was Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and was appalled firstly at the ticket prices, then the cost of the drinks / snacks and then to add insult to injury, the quality of both the picture and moreso the sound (fuzzy, indistinct and with constant dropouts and glitches) and from that day to this I have vowed never to return and TBH, I haven't.
I used to love going to the flicks, the sense of occasion, the buzz of watching a movie with the whole audience gasping and laughing to the on screen action. Nowadays though, I'm afraid the "good old days" are over. The constant commentry from some "chavs" who have been to see the movie 5~6 times from the front, the younger children whinging and kicking the back of the chairs etc etc.
Add all this to the rip off prices and the now obligotory ban on bringing your own food and drink into the auditorium and its no wonder attendances are on the wane.
IMHO, its better to wait till the movie is released on DVD (or if you have the tech to play it in its glory BLU-RAY). The sound and picture quality is far greater in my experience and the bonus is YOU can choose who and when to watch it with.

That's what i felt like when i came out from seeing Iron Man, Why did i just pay best pert of £16 to see a film when i could have spent the same on a Blu-Ray that i could keep, go home and watch whenever i want in Glorious 1080p with HD sound

I believe the future in Cinema is in 3D in order to regain peoples interest

Completely agree with your whole statement Graham. Plus I live in the south west and haven't found a decent cinema south of Bristol, in fact my local is an absolute disgrace for PQ & sound. (barely heard a word from Casino Royale)
