We usually just sneak in candy and typically buy drinks or popcorn if we want it. I know they have to make their money but it is really because my kids want their own candy and we all want different things so we hit the local store before going. Of course it does help save money now that movies are $8 - 10 for each person! Do you sneak in food? Does anyone sneak in popcorn or drinks? What is the weirdest thing you have snuck in or seen someone else sneak in a movie?

Always. I sneak in Candy bars and a sprite. It is so much cheaper than what they try to sell you there.

i usually sneak in candy. The prices that the theaters charge are outrageous! I can get 3 boxes of theatre size candy at the store for the price of one that they charge. it's bad enough i have to only take my kids to the early shows because their cheaper.

Yes. I sneak in candy, chips, and drink. It's because well.. all the prices are to high! and it's really easy to sneak in. I brink this big purse and put all this junk in it and buy the ticket. It's that easy. The craziest thing I seen snook in was a kid with a backpack walking into the movies and they actually let him in. and another crazy thing I saw snook in was McDonald's the people were right behind me and I could axcually smell it I don't know how they snook it in but they did. But sometimes I buy popcorn because sometimes I feel bad for sneaking in food.

I would think McDonalds is a bit much and smelly for everyone else. I do try to buy at least drinks so they make some money or sometimes popcorn but the candy is outrageous.

To go to a theater and watch a movie anymore is very expensive and then you figure buying the snacks they have to sell there is outrageous. I bring a big purse and have enough food in there to keep me for the whole movie. I bring in bottle water and I don't think that I have ever brought anything wierd into a movie or know of anyone else that has brought something wierd into the movie.

Bringing bottled water is a good idea. Any little bit helps a movie plus concession items eats up all our spending money for the weekend so anything helps out. I did see someone bring in a bag of fast food once, I would think that would be messy and it was smelly! I thought about popping popcorn and bringing it in baggies before because theirs is often stale.
