12 times ? That would've cost me 360 dollars (I pay for the wife as well) !!!
You don't have an equivalent of Half-Price Tuesday in your area?
You can't afford $15 (each) for a little entertainment (of over two hours) you really enjoy every few weeks?
You don't have a scheme where you can buy a booklet of ten (or five) discount tickets? (I almost never pay full price for a movie.)
You can only ever go to movies with your wife?
