Haha I recently went to the movies and just seems like every time I go to the movies I have some popcorn chips or a hotdog and soda on the side. No I didn't eat this all by myself it was my boyfriend, cousin and sister and I eating. I know whe. Everyone is at the theraters and always they show future preview movies coming soon or coming next year or fall. They are so interesting and you get so into it then by the time e movie starts the food is gone hahaha.. Opps

Hey staria, Haha yeah you are right I think if we get a friend at is on a diet to hold all the food then it wont be touch then maybe we will have enough food or popcorn, drink or anything. Hey I might give that try haha . We will see if it really works I think we should bring our own food and that will save us food money and time haha

Haha, that's a great idea, let your friend (who's in a diet and would want to influence you) hold the food for you. This way, no need for popcorns and chips lol! jk! :)

Guilty as charged Payout! We haven't seated that long before we started munching our popcorn while watching the trailers of movies. Well who cares, popcorn are best eaten while its hot. Never mind if you have nothing to munch while the movie is on-going. At least you have time to concentrate on the film.

Hey Sweet_Pea, haha I think so many of us do that we just cant help ourselves and just munch away haha I guess because we are excited and happy to see a movie that we love or interested.. maybe love later haha after haha. Yeah that might be a plus concentrating on the movie haha

Well that is just my excuse so as not to notice that I don't have any popcorn to munch through the film and prevent myself from buying a second serving. Have you notice how pricey can they get at a movie house?

Hey alexanda, Haha yeah i guess that makes it better to eat a lot of it because it's good for us the popcorn haha. But yeah I eat slowly when it's a drama romantic movie or sad one. When it's action syfy or adventure I eat faster haha... Hey that's another discussion haha but it's funny how people eat at a pace base on the movie genre

I always try my best to save my food through the previews. I may pick over it but I notice that I do that all that time then be bummed when its time for the movie to start. Previews are just as good as the movies though and the food is tasty so you can't help yourself

@Dana - I agree with you haha yeah even if you pick at it the preview are good as well and like you said so is the food so you or me or anyone can't help themselves but to make it disappear haha.. So funny haha

hehehe, you too! Never fails for me, as I usually get to a theater early, for the purposes of not waiting in long concession stand lines and or ticket lines, so of course the trailers and now commercialized trailers, seem like the are increasing. So of course I am chomping away on my huge popcorn and soda. lol... So by the time the movie comes on I am completely out. Sometimes I wonder, Gee and I ate before coming to the theater, but I suppose for me the excitement of being there I just got to have the snacks. Yum, I cannot image a movie with it.

Hey Hardworkinggurl, Haha... I cant help myself when it comes to movies and snacks lol. Just seems like when you buy the tickets you have to buy some snacks haha.. :P haha. Yeah movie without popcorn and soda or water for me or even Nocho and Cheese and hotdogs seem like a must have. :) I love the new Preview movies coming soon. :)

Oh yeah I hear you with that as as soon as I buy the movie passes I dash to the concession stand. lol, it is a must for me too.

It is great to have our own popcorn but sometimes sharing is great too. Just depends on who were with.

lol! That happens. You know that in some theatres you get a free refill on popcorn and pop. If your theatre does that, then you will not run out!

Yeah one time me and my friends and family went and it was so funny haha because we had 2 large popcorn big and everything haha we ate almost all of it before the movie started then one of my friends went to go get a refill on both and we did haha.. Too bad by the time the movie ended we didn't eat all of it I guess because we weren't that hungry anymore or the movie was too interested. My friend end up taking the two popcorn and took with us to the car haha.

The credits are fairly long now. The credits are much longer than they used to be. I remember one time the credits lasted almost 15 minutes. I don't go to the movies much anymore. I haven't seen many good films on Netflix either. I might cancel soon. I just watch old films on TCM (Turner Classic Movies) now.

Hey blauegoblin, I don't know to me it's just seems to be the same timing as it was in the pass. I remover my parents telling me movie tickets use to be cheaper now they are a lot more haha. Netflix doesn't really bring out new new movies it takes days for them to allow people to have the option to send it to there home. I like my Netflix thought.

Hi. payout. Ha, ha ha! I guess next time, you will probably go alone to the movies. If all of my food was eaten up, I probably would silently throw a fit. I don't want to disturb other movie watchers because of my fury!!

Hey Cream, Haha.. I wasnt by myself that day but I was with 3 other people but I guess that will explain why the food went so fast haha.. but I think its funny in the end haha. I didnt get mad was a little upset but I wanted to get more but didnt want to miss the movie in the end haha

Hey Lovely, Yeah I dont bring my own stuff haha.. I should though if they allow me to bring my own stuff haha. I would haha. Maybe I have to sneak it in haha.. Well yeah I too love the Preview movies before the actual movie plays haha.. I think the reason why there are so many is because the people that come late can make it haha

My boyfriend also makes chips, soda and popcorn disappear even before the movie starts. And to think we've already had dinner or lunch before going to the movies! I always kid him that his jaws seem to be munching non=stop when we're together. He always replies it's because that's the only time that he really has an appetite for food. So, it's very rare that I would still have something to eat by the first fifteen minutes of any movie we have watched together!

I can often have a difficult ime keeping my movie refreshments alone before watching a movie. i never have to worry about having anything left to eat or drink when the movie ends. it has long ago been consumed!

Hey Sender, Oh I think the drink is the last think that survives when we or myself watches a movie. The food goes fast the drink usually last the longest. by the time the movie is over the drink is Gone. So everything is GONE. haha

It's very common time in our everyday life.by the way,when you go to the movie next time buy some more popcorn and more soda,so drink some soda while you are eating the popcorn,maybe you'll have some popcorn left by the time the movive starts,haha

I know that at the movies there can be so many adverts that it takes what seems like ages for the actual movie to begin. So a large popcorn was eaten by you, your boyfriend, your cousin and your sister actually before the film began. It was lovely that you found the future preview movies interesting. I really prefer not to see the adverts but just the movie. Sometimes a movie can be long and the seats are uncomfortable.

It is hard to resist foods that are really yummy. I am glad you share your treats at the movies. It has been a long while since I have gone to a movie, but I try to not snack heavily there. My food is coming out of the oven now, so I will stay home and munch while I work.

Well when i got to the movie theather its usually just me and my boyfriend we get a poporn which we never even finish as we get so into watching the movie before considering to even eat the ret of the popcorn and we get one soda and share everything. Sometimes we buy some nachos and cheese to eat but nothing is ever eaten before the movie starts, i guess were slow eaters or something i dont know.
