They spend modest amounts on movies. Spend more on books, on cheap entertainment. This being very much the case. Correct.

A person that can't pay the mortgage doesn't instead pay 100bucks minimum/ticket, and several hundred bucks on a night out. If you know people like that I feel sorry for them. Wave at them for me as their house is foreclosed and they're out the door.

To suggest that people that don't have money pay regularly for bigticket entertainment is disingenuous if not impossible.
