What food and drinks do you sneak into the movie theater?

We went to see a movie this weekend and paid alot for popcorn, two drinks and nachos....
But usually we take our snacks in a nice big handbag!

  • when my husband and i were dating i introduced him to my "big bag"..that is a large pocketbook that i take with me to the movie theaters and take in whatever will fit...usually sodas, candy, chips, cookies or whatever else i'm in the mood for or the kids are in the mood for...i just can't see buying things at the concession stand when it is already so much to get into a movie...i mean seriously $10.50 per person is ridiculous and forget if you wanna see a 3D movie which is like another 4 dollars's too the point where if you have a family it's a ridiculous amount just to get into the movie, start adding snacks and you'll end up spending like fifty bucks or more just to see one film..that's crazy to me

  • haha most people have done it... its crazy what they charge!!!!
    usually bottles of soda or water, and the $1 "movie theatre" candy from the grocery store. (a movie theatre just isn't the place for carrot sticks! haha)

  • Back in the day, my ex snuck in a bottle of beer. I remember it fell and rolled all the way down the floor. I was so embarrassed! Those were the days....

  • Usually a few packages of gummy candies and chocolates for the kids, Hot Tamales candies for me, and some bottles of soda. We buy the popcorn there. But sometimes we get Icees there too...too hard to sneak those in lol.
