Last Night Confession at the Movies.....

Last night we went to the movies. Usually at the theaters here, for a large BUCKET of popcorn with free refills is $7.00, highway robbery right? For my popcorn grubbing family we always get a large, refill it and take it home. So we went to a different theater in our town where you order your popcorn, food, drinks etc in the theater and they bring it to you. My husband ordered a large popcorn. When the movie started, the waitress brought a small size stainless steel bowl with popcorn in it. I said "There are free refills right?" She said "Oh no." We are talking $7.00 for this tiny bowl. I told my husband to take it back and get our $7.00 back and he was like "No, just watch the movie." So I told him "I'm taking the damn bowl with us." When the movie was over, I put the bowl in my purse and walked out. EVIL, right? Do you have a confession?

  • That is so funny! I would probably do the same thing. I don't really have any movie theatre confessions except I bring my big purse and fill it up with drinks and snacks and sneak them in. I almost always end up ordering the 7 dollar popcorn too though.

  • Yeah, they have menus with a ton of dinner food like steak, tacos etc. You sit in your theater seat that has a table in front of it, write down what you want and put it "up" so the waiter or waitress can see it.

  • Alamo Draft House?

  • Okay, I probably would not have taken the bowl because in the end it will just drive the prices up even higher and because stainless steel is not microwaveable. II mean who wants a bowl that is not microwaveable?) I just would not return to that theater again and stick to your old and beloved theater where you get a free refill to take home.

    Is it a nice bowl?
