A Michigan man, fed up with paying high prices for concession food, has filed a class-action lawsuit against American Multi Cinema ("AMC"), alleging the establishment grossly overcharges for its snacks.

Joshua Thompson filed the suit in Wayne County Circuit Court because he “got tired of being taken advantage of,” his lawyer, Kerry Morgan, told a local newspaper. “It’s hard to justify prices that are three and four times higher than anywhere else.”

In the suit, Thompson accuses the theater chain of contravening the Michigan Consumer Protection Act by overcharging for concessions.  In addition to a refund for customers, he seeks a civil penalty against AMC.  As evidence, he claims he paid $8 for a soda and packet of Goobers at the theater, but that he paid less than $3 for those products at a restaurant and drug store nearby.

AMC didn’t respond to media requests for comment.
