$4.75 for a banana????

I went to a movie theater the other day in Woburn, MA. I saw a banana for sale. I asked about the price they said it was $4.75 for one banana.

What about the sign that bans outside food from being brought in and consumed?

Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
