Here’s the average cost of a date the year you were born

In a day and age when you can stream a movie on Netflix without getting off of the couch, it can be tempting for couples to simply stay home instead of spending the money on a date outside. Especially today, when movie tickets have gone up dramatically in price, the classic “dinner and a movie” date can put a dent in your wallet.

But this has not always been the case. In fact, for most of the last century, going to a movie cost less than a dollar. MooseRoots calculated how much it would have cost to purchase dinner and a movie for two in each year since 1940.

The genealogy site used Zagat’s 2016 estimate for the national average price for one person to buy dinner and the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Consumer Price Index (CPI) for dinner prices before today. They also used data from the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) to find the average price of a movie ticket since 1940.

They included the absolute prices of a date in each year, as well as adjusted prices to reflect inflation.
