    The price of food seems proportionate to the price of tickets. I rarely go to the movies at all anymore because IMO $12 is way too much for a movie, then the additional $15 for food just kills me.

    Pay-per-View Movie: $4.99
    Homemade bag of popcorn: ~$1 (if you buy the microwaveable bags)
    Glass of Water: Free, courtesy of Brita
    Not dealing with high prices, long lines, screaming children, fatty to the left munching on nachos....

    This is the thread that I needed! I'm going to the movies tonight with a friend. I'm on a huge diet and seeing these numbers will keep me away from all the crap.

    Hahah, yep, another food smuggler here! Although the cinema near me has suffered since a bigger and better one opened up, and its so sad to see 2 people there a day, so i always buy an icecream when i go there because i figure they need all the help they can get. Smuggling food in there would be like stealing from the homeless.

    i never get anything except a water or the occasional coke. some of the small cinemas here don't even have a concession stand, just a vending machine with drinks. and some only have a small counter that sells water, sodas, coffee, m&m's, maltesers and ice cream (like magnum and popcicles).

    I was at the movies the other day and the people behind me were either drunk or just plain inconsiderate. they kept dropping popcorn everywhere and even ended up falling on my head.

    I finally turned around and asked them to be more careful. wtf.

    I make my own popcorn-I dust ginger, chocolate and icing sugar over it...sometimes cinnamon too. You have to be careful when you eat it as if you breathe in at the wrong time the spicces go up your nose But is a little healthier, and a lot cheaper than buying the nasty popcorn from the cinema. I have been known to take fruit in as well....

    I take my own snacks with me, and if they say anything to me about it, I simply bitch and moan about how much I paid to get in here. Most of the theaters I go to don't really care one way or the other. If someone else is buying me snacks, well hell, load me up!!!!

    I hate buying anything at the consession counter. I usually eat before watching a movie or I put snacks and drinks in my purse.
    ..and I mean that from the heart of my bottom..

    I smuggle in my own candy, but I have a weakness for buttery popcorn. I always share a small with a friend though and we never finish it so that cuts down on calories there. Plus I smuggle in bottled water, sometimes my lover Cherry Coke. I never buy drinks there. Next time I think I'll take a healthy route and bring in some grapes or something. But it's very rarely I go to the theaters. I work in a video store while I'm in college, so why pay when you get free movies?

    I'm a popcorn WHORE!!! I eat it almost every night. I have to have it at the movies. I wish they served decent coffee at the movie theater, the stuff they sell sucks.

    Still, it costs about $40 for me and my boyfriend to go to the movies. The cost of tickets and the cost of food is crazy.

    That's why you want to sit in the middle.

    I consider myself a professional smuggler.
    I've brought into various theatres; Indian food, Ethiopian food, a bottle of wine & cheese, complete with glasses & crackers.
    Last night while watching 'Encounters at the End of the World' I noshed on Sante Fe spring rolls, broccoli, twisted mac & cheese, apple cobbler and a Sun-drenched Daiquiri in a take-home hurricane glass.
    It was wonderful.
