Do you buy them there or sneak them in?

When you go to the movies, do you buy your snacks there or do you buy then elsewhere and sneak them in?

Barely go but if we do, we eat first before going.

We usually buy popcorn and drink there but we will stop at the dollar store for other snacks if we want more than popcorn.I refuse to pay $5 for the same snack I can get for $1.

We do the same usually. Walmart has the movie theater sized snacks for $1.

We buy popcorn there but I take in bottled water and any candy they may want.  They charge way too much for candy at the movies.  You can get all of them for a dollar at Walmart.

We rarely go but when we do we will buy popcorn and a drink to share.  Thankfully we have a movie theater that isn't crazy priced in our area still.

Have you ever had a theater tell you that you can bring water in?

I bring in my own water in my bag as I always have one there anyway, and some diabetic candy if I want that. I will buy popcorn and soda but not the ginormous sizes. The pricing for snax at our local theater is more than the cost of the tickets. It's ridiculous. I understand that's how they make their money, and don't get anything from showing the movie, but yikes!

I'm naughty.  I sneak mine in.  I only buy my popcorn there.  Last time we went to a movie. I took my big purse.  Stuffed it with some bottled sodas and candy for dh.  Walked right on in.   I won't pay theater prices on drinks and candy.
