Have you been to the movies recently?

Did you about have a Heart attack at the prices of Popcorn and Pop?!?! Geesh! No wonder people sneak in their snacks and drinks!

  • I took my fam to go see Grown ups this weekend and LOL about bringing your own snacks, we do the same. I have a gigantic purse and we stop by the dollar store and by the candy, once we bought Panda express and tryied to shub it inside my purse, it was quite funny. My kids were all scared that they were going to "check my purse" and scared that we would get in trouble!

  • Yeah, we eat just before or just after going. That crap is WAY too expensive.

  • Nope. The tickets and goodies are so expensive. It was $50 for my husband to take our oldest 2 to see a movie - a matinee showing - and get 1 large popcorn, 1 candy, and 1 large drink for the 3 of them to share! If it doesn't show in our small town ($3.00 tickets), we don't go anymore.

  • I took my daughters to see toy story 3. yes the pricing is outrageous! but we do have a "stimulus day" at our theater, it's on Tuesdays and you can get a large popcorn for a buck and a large pop for a buck, which is a really good deal!

  • LOL! We haven't been since last year. Well, now that was with my mom & sister seeing "My Sister's Keeper". DH & I last saw.....well, I can't remember, but I remember that we went out to eat afterwards. It was our anniversary. Oh, it was that Sandra Bullock movie about the foster son. BLIND SIDE. Goodness, I had to google it. So, NO, we don't go much. LOL!

  • We eat before. I can sneak in a can of soda or bottle of water in my purse if I want to. Those big tubs of popcorn not only cost $6+, they pack 1000 calories or more! Its okay as a once in a while treat, but definitely not a regular thing.
