goodies before it starts or during?Does it bug you when someone comes slinking down the line of seats and everyone has to move and become all unconfortable to let them pass?What do you usually buy for treats?

Actually, I get candy and drinks from the dollar store and bring a big purse. I think it's getting outrageous just to go to the movies today. I mean, here it's 8.75 a person and i'm not about to spend another 20 bucks on popcorn, candy, and cokes. i bring my own. as far as other people, it doesn't bother me if they leave to go and get something.

Its too bad I can't do something like that. A friend of mine tried a bookbag but got searched and busted.

You don't have discounted theatres there? We have many that show movies that have been out for a few weeks and it costs only $3 for a ticket. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

well, we do have a 2.50 theater, but you have to wait for about two months for a movie you wanna see before it even comes out there. just a pain, especially if my kids know it's out there and want to see it right then.

I would prefer to eat my food while it's hot and when I feel hungry, so I'd like to have them during the movie runs. Most of the foods I'd love to eat are chips or curls, sandwhich and iced tea for a drink. I just hope that other movie-viewers understand it, as almost all of them do stand up and move through crowds at times!;)

Oh I forgot, sorry about that. Curls are chips, that's what we're used to call them instead of chips!;)

I usually get popcorn and soda or water and some kind of candy. I always want to put my feet up but someone always sits right in front of me so I cant put my feet on their chair.

I usually don't buy any treats when I go to the movies...they're too darn expensive!! Besides most stuff at movies I really can't eat much of anyway due to my blood sugar problem...so I usually bring my own stuff..that's supposed to be against the rules I think...but who cares...LOL

Since I have no way to smuggle in the goods, I'm forced to use the stand if I didn't eat earlier. If it comes to that I get my snacks beforehand. I've only gotten snacks during if its a movie I've already seen (only done it twice overall).

I agree Peanut, but I never have to worry about that. Most times I'm so early to the movies I get to see the quiz part thats even before the "welcome to the theater" and the previews bit.

I buy my goodies before I go inside the movie house. This is the most convenient thing to do so that i could watch the movie in full rather than going out every now and then to buy my stuff. Its also the best way to show our courtesy to the others who are seated in the same row, since we won't be distrubing or blocking their view for standing every now and then. I love to buy popcorn and soda. My prob is i have all these yellowish powder (from butter and cheese)on my shirt after the movie. And yes, also in my fingers and mouth.

I do the same!Hehehe.My daughter always wants some kind of candy,so i will give her a hidden treat that she does not know i bought.That way we dont have to all get up and leave,bothering others.:)

I buy my treats before the movie starts. Now days most theatres have free refills on medium and large pops and popcorn so there seems to be more activity of people getting up to get more goodies. I go during the early shows so there aren't a lot of people that can get in my way of seeing the film. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~
