When you are watching movies inside the cinema then are you always bringing or buying food like popcorn, drinks, sandwiches and other more? Or you are just a type of person that it is okay with you not to spend for food and drinks as long as you can enjoy watching the movie? Why or why not you are bringing or buying food inside the cinema? Are you type of person that watching movies won’t be completed without food and drinks or snack?

hi, actually its a sign of being frugality to mine,i don't buy any foods nor bringing food inside of the Cinemas,instead i will eat first out side of the mall or in a cheap fast food before i go inside of the Cinema and i can save more money with that.

Since the movie tickets are expensive, so we don't often go to the cinema. If we do, then we must bring our son to the cinema so that we can enjoy it together. Sometimes I am afraid he will be bored. And therefore I will bring the snacks and drinks to the cinema so that he will eat it and meanwhile enjoy watching the movie.

I think eating & drinking whilst watching movies at the cinema is so over-rated! It also makes a big mess for the cleaners to clean up. I make sure I have enough before I go. Prices for food & drink at the Cinemas are so expensive. They're also not all that good for us. However, in some areas, it's getting better. When I went in Garden City in Brisbane, QLD, they had 100% organic mango drinks in a cup they make from fresh whilst you wait. They sold these drinks alongside all the junk food inside the official stand at the Cinema itself. The prices for these were also quite reasonable, considering the price of mango down here. Hope it catches on!

Sometimes I do buy food but that's only if I hadn't eaten anything for about six hours or so..but if I ate something like an hour prior to going to the movies then I would just bring M&M's or something sweet to munch on while I'm at the cinama. I think everyone would agree with me that most of the snacks they offer r a bit overpriced. The theater I go to charge like $13.99 for just a ticket and a drink. No refills. The first time I went to visit the cinama I bought along my sister and two daughters. Sometimes I lie and tell them she's two and she gets in free! I know I shouldn't but I can't help it lol! I blew like fifty bucks there alone one night and I thought to myself I'm gonna bring my bring my own snacks from now on!

I would rather buy the food inside unless it is something small that I can carry in my purse. The last time I went to a movie was when my husband was alive and he bought a big box of popcorn. Before that, I ordered nachos at the theater. So for me it really does not matter. I do not think I should be made to feel guilty about buying food at the theater or not buying it, eating what I brought, or not eating anything at all. It is not that important and besides with the new theaters being smaller, you cannot eat that much anyway.

I usually skip the snacks at movies, they make it too expensive. Although the experience is better with some popcorn.

When I am at the movie theatre, I like bringing in popcorn and soda since it’s quite a tradition over movie houses. Somehow, eating while watching a movie is puts a more interest on the event that you are watching rather than watching the whole film and your stomach is grumbling, why not buy some foods while watching it. It will put a double whammy on your film experience which is one; you are satisfied on what you see. And two, you are satisfied on what you eat. LOL

I usually get a box of popcorn to eat and a soda pop to drink. I've not taken anything in to a movie theater. When I was a kid, though, we went to the drive-in movies. My mom usually made popcorn for everyone. I can't remember if we took our own drinks.

These days I can get by going to the movies without buying popcorn. I guess it's because I always get to the movies around 15 minutes before the movie would begin and there's still a long queue at the snack area. But if I could go early I would buy popcorn.
