The average price per movie ticket was $47.70 on Tuesday.
Ticketmaster says the average price for movie tickets in the U.S. was up 5.9% year-over-year.
The ticket price hike comes as the average ticket cost in the country has dropped over the past year.
Last year, average ticket prices rose 5.4% over the same time period.
Last week, average prices fell 1.2% on average over the week, according the National Association of Theatre Owners.
A number of big movies, including the Avengers, Thor: Ragnarok, X-Men: Apocalypse and The Dark Knight Rises, will be released in October, with many others likely to follow.
Some films, including The Dark Horse and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, are scheduled to hit theaters in October.
The biggest increases in ticket prices have come from films such as Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
For instance, The Hobbit was up 14.2%.
The Pirates of The Caribbean: At World’s End, The Hunger Game: Munchkins and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2 each saw ticket prices rise by 13.2%, according to Ticketmaster, the second highest increase in the past three years.
