Posted By Peter Martin on 09/08/2012

Last week we published a list of the 10 most expensive movie tickets in the world. We figured you’d also be interested in the flip side of that: the 10 cheapest movie tickets in the world.

Interestingly, the 10 cities where you can find those cheap tickets are in six different countries on three continents. But heading to India is probably a good choice if you’re looking for cheap movies—especially if your tastes are more Bollywood than Hollywood. Here’s the list:

10. Cluj-Napoca, Romania: $8.15
9. Delhi, India: $7.78
8. Bangalore, India: $7.62
7. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: $7.61
6. Mumbai, India: $7.45
5. San Salvador, El Salvador: $7.43
4. Pune, India: $7.16
3. Belgrade, Serbia: $6.76
2. Tehran, Iran: $6.23
1. Hyderabad, India: $4.95

While much of this list matches the bottom of the Cost-of-Living Index, the differences show that some cheap cities get there thanks to cheap entertainment and food, while others have cheap housing, and so on. If you’re curious to see a city’s full cost-of-living break-down, just search for it on the Expatistan.com homepage or find it in the Cost-of-Living Index and click over to its individual page. There you’ll find exact prices for everything, from movie tickets to toilet paper to a car. Poke around and see what surprises you.
