Do you take snacks or buy snacks at the movie theater when you go to the movies?

  • Are you kidding- at those prices- we're smuggling in whatever we can! Sometimes we'll get a popcorn to split- but that's it. Personally, w/ finances the way they are, I'd prefer to wait til it comes out on video & watch it at home. (& pause whenever we need to go to the restroom too)

  • :-) When we go to the movies, we usually eat dinner first (or lunch if we're seeing an early movie) then buy a snack and drink there. I'm too much of a rule follower to take my own. Plus, how can I expect my kid to follow rules if she sees me breaking them?
    We usually get a big popcorn and a big drink to share between the three of us.

  • We usually smuggle them in. Prices are ridiculous!

  • No. I think I can go an hour and a half without mindlessly feeding my face.

  • Only because my husband is like a 10 year old and feels obligated....Like you can't go to a theater and not buy snacks lol. But I don't usually eat anything.

  • Occasionally, we will buy but only on special occasions. I am too much of a goody-two-shoes to take my own snacks into the movies.

  • I like to get the movie popcorn, but I have been known to smuggle in candy and soda :)
