Taking in a movie at the theaters is getting more expensive.

The average price of a movie ticket jumped 8 percent in the first quarter of this year compared with the same time last year.

The National Association of Theatre owners says moviegoers now pay an average of $7.95 a ticket. That the largest increase since the group began tracking ticket prices in 2001.
