If sodas are four bucks, how much is the sushi?

A new idea in movie theaters, and one is being built in the Dallas-area:

"Gold Class Cinemas."

Each complex will sport theaters featuring 40 reclining armchair seats with footrests, digital projection and the capability to screen 2-D and 3-D movies, as well as a lounge and bar serving cocktails and appetizers, a concierge service and valet parking.

But the circuit will especially push its culinary offerings -- made-to-order meals like sushi and other theater-friendly foods from on-site chefs (a service button at each seat calls a waiter). Moviegoers will have to pay extra for any food they order, however.

Sound like a good idea?

Well, each movie ticket will cost 35 bucks. And that doesn't include any food.
