Discrimination on cinema ticket pricing is justifiable

Mark Littlewood appears on Radio 5 Live

As cinemas start charging higher prices to see films in the early stages of release, Mark Littlewood spoke to Five Live on this so-called ‘blockbuster tax’.

Mark argues that this is not a tax, but simply discrimination on pricing. DVDs cost more when first released, yet fall in price as time passes, so there is no reason that the same shouldn’t apply at the cinema. Mark makes the point that this move is perfectly justifed, and is something which takes places in several areas of our lives.
