Don't you remember the days when movie tickets were so simple? You either received the red ticket or blue ticket like which had the words "admit one". Back in those days movies only cost of a few cents as opposed to today where it cost a few dollars . Even though movie tickets cost a few dollars in this day and age it's prices somewhat equivalent- to how much it cost back then in the early 1900s.
Yes understanding early 1900s of dollars to a kid was like $100 so even though and the money was a relatively low as far as income is concerned, the price of items were in the sensor range as opposed to the dollar range. Times have changed tremendously to the point where you don't even tickets you can simply leave your Movie Phone across an RFID reader and access your movies that way.
