Man sues AMC Theatres over high-priced snacks

Class action lawsuit seeks to end alleged price gouging

With tickets costing around $12 each and concessions costing nearly as much, moviegoers know how pricey it can be to see the latest Hollywood hits. But one Michigan man is tired of spending so much cash at the theater.

Film buff Joshua Thompson, who lives just outside Detroit, used to take his own snacks to the theater in order to save money. But on a recent visit to his nearby AMC Theatre, Thompson saw that the theater had posted a sign telling customers they were no longer allowed to bring in their own popcorn, candy and soda.
