I haven't been to the movies since 2002.  However, when I did, I usually got a drink and a box of candy.  I never got popcorn because movie popcorn is so nasty.

Yes, and it really depends, but always get a soda.

Lol, I just recently read that if they don't sell all the popcorn that day, they will just reuse it the next day.

 Just popcorn, soda and sometimes, candy.  I use to get the nachos, before they started giving patrons the containers, with a bag of chips and a little cup of semi-warm cheese and no jalapenos and then want to charge damn near $10 for it.

We usually buy a kids pack, because it's such a good deal... It's a little popcorn, a 12 oz drink, and a fun size candy for around $5.

 Yup, it's true.  I use to work, in the concession stands, in the early '90's and if there was any popcorn left over, they would bag it up, keep it in the back until the next day, then dump it in one of the warmers.  If it's a lot left, they would spread out the popcorn to each warmer.  So, I always try to get the fresh popcorn coming out of the popper.

Used to buy popcorn-I don't go to the movies anymore. Prefer to watch at home.

Yes.  I would just skip the stand, but DH insists.  We usually get a small popcorn and medium soda to share.  If DS is with us, we get some Reeses Pieces.
