This is especially the case for movie halls, wherein prices of popcorn and drinks often exceed even the cost of the movie ticket. Recently, a Twitter user named Tridip K Mandal pointed out that a single box of regular popcorn and cola drink set him back by Rs 820 at the PVR Cinemas outlet in Noida. And now, PVR Cinemas took cognizance of this and tweeted that they are launching new offers that will be easy on the pocket of their loyal cinemagoers.
