Is $150 too much money for a movie ticket you'd normally buy for about $10 or $12?
That's a question Dark Knight trilogy/Christopher Nolan geeks are asking themselves after advance tickets to the midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises on July 20 sold out and scalpers are increasing the price by as much as 80% on Craigslist and eBay. Average ticket prices on these sites for the debut showing ranged from $120- $150.
If you really want a deal, you can buy a cluster of seats (like 5) for $500, reports Screencrush.com. All in the name of knowing what happens to Gotham City a few hours before your friends.
While a representative for Fandango.com told MTV News that resold tickets aren't valid, many pointed out that tracking such a thing would be incredibly difficult.
Those who aren't looking to spend three figures (or anywhere close to it) to gaze at Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway in their rubber suits, fear not — if you wait a few hours, you'll likely be able to snag admission at the (still lofty) IMAX price of about $18.
