Why Is Village Cinemas’ Food So Expensive?
The main reason why Village’s popcorn is so expensive is because people continue to pay the current prices. Simple supply and demand.
Think about it like this, if everyone stopped buying the popcorn because it was too expensive, they’d be forced to drop the price in order to bring sales back up. But that’s not going to happen, because it’s too damn delicious for people to form such a protest!
As well, the candy bar is a large portion of the theatre’s profit. Sure, they may only make up a small amount of the total sales, but in terms of profit, they account for nearly 40% according to some studies.
With that being said, it won’t stop the local media from continuing to publish articles around movie theatres being a ripoff and the popcorn is unjustifiably high in cost.
Keep in mind that Village Cinemas aren’t the only movie company in Australia charging higher prices for their popcorn and snacks. Just have a look at Hoyts’ popcorn prices and you’ll see it’s all quite similar.
How Healthy Is Their Popcorn?
If you’re looking to stay healthy and consume a low amount of calories each day, you’ll probably want to stay away from Village Cinemas’ popcorn.
According to MyFitnessPal, a large popcorn has around 940 calories in it. That’s nearly 10 apples worth.
Similarly, CalorieKing puts a small popcorn at 300 calories, and a medium at 630 calories. So if you want to enjoy a movie with some snacks and stay healthy, it’s best to bring in your own food.
Is Village Cinemas Popcorn Vegan?
Generally, the salted popcorn is always one of the few vegan items on the menu. For example, all of AMC’s popcorn is vegan, but the seasoning they add on top afterwards isn’t. Which is great, because then everyone can get what they want.
If you’re looking to be 100% on whether Village’s popcorn is vegan, ask the server beforehand or give their head office a call (number below).
About Village Cinemas
Village Cinemas has been showing movies to the Australian public for more than 50 years now, after first being established in 1954 when the first drive-in theatre was built. The company itself is owned by Australia Theatres, a joint venture between Village Roadshow and Event Hospitality and Entertainment.
They’ve grown from their humble beginnings to now operate more than 50 cinemas across 5 countries, including Argentina, Greece, Fiji, and of course, Australia. However, you’ll only find their cinemas in two of the Australian states – Victoria and Tasmania.
One recent innovation to their business has been the introduction of Gold Class. This premium movie experience features and up-market menu, luxurious reclining seats, all the refreshments you desire, and delivery right to your seat. It’s been a hit in many locations with more and more Village locations seeing a Gold Class added to it. See just how different the experience is by checking out Village Cinemas Gold Class menu.
It’s a bit dated, but here’s a promotion when it was still fairly new to the public:
