      Man suing movie theater over prices

      A suburban Detroit man is suing his local AMC theater over what he says are its too-high snack prices.

      The Detroit Free Press reports Joshua Thompson filed a lawsuit last week in Wayne County Circuit Court.

      The suit accuses AMC of violating the Michigan Consumer Protection Act by charging grossly excessive prices for snacks. It seeks refunds for customers who were overcharged and a civil penalty against the theater chain.

      A message seeking comment from AMC Theatres was left by The Associated Press before business hours on Wednesday.

      Thompson is a security technician from Livonia. The suit says that on December 26, he paid eight dollars for a Coke and a package of Goobers at the Livonia theater.
