Movie Tickets In Colorado Could Go Up 10 Cents

DENVER (AP) — Movie tickets would cost 10 cents more under a proposal by two Colorado Republicans to raise incentive money for film productions.

House Bill 1207 would add a dime to movie tickets starting in July, with the money designated for the Colorado Office of Film, Television & Media. That office offers tax incentives to try to attract film and television productions to Colorado.

The proposal was introduced Friday, and an analysis of how much the bill would raise wasn’t immediately available. The sponsors — Republican Rep. Tom Massey and Republican Sen. Nancy Spence — couldn’t immediately be reached for comment on the movie ticket fee proposal.
