Hello Friends So last weekend went good for me (for enjoyment purpose). Saturday night we went for dinner and Sunday we went for Movie at theater. Movie was okay, but I noticed that cost of food has gone quite up. Even popcorn is having sky rocketing cost. Well, I thought about having snack outside the food as I thought those prices for food was just too much. But then my wife said me that we not come for movies all the time and without popcorn is kind of missing something. Lol, I have to go for it. Well, as we don't go there frequently I can't say no to her either. But those prices are just kind of bluff. What you do in such situation?

I don't go to theaters to watch movies. The last time I watch movie in a theater was 2 years ago. Well, good thing here in our place is that movie theaters are located inside malls so, foods are not strictly owned by theaters, it means price is reasonable and cheap.

Agree with your wife, you can't go to movies and not have popcorn. Home made does not taste as nice either. I hardly go to movies though, I battle to sit still for long periods and the aircon and people eating loudly irritate me. I sound really grumpy but wait, there's another moan... I don't particularly enjoy entering a dark room that I can't verify is clean either. Yes. I agree, people like me should just stay at home LOL.
I guess there are now instant popcorn packs (which we need to cook) which got prepare in only minutes and which tastes quite good too. And good part is that they are quite cheap. Quite cheaper than those theater popcorn. But yes we can't take them to theater. That sounds odd to me. And also they don't allow outside food. Lol, look like you hate theaters that way. I guess they are not that dirty as you are saying.

@akp100 they are probably spotless.... But how can I be sure. Theatre popcorn just tastes better. Also that smell when you enter, I can't resist. Here it's not so much the popcorn that's expensive, it's the huge cup of overpriced watered down coke.... And of course you can't have the popcorn without something to drink. It's all so much, so you place it in the cupholders on the seat. In the dark.............
Unfortunately most of theatres does not allow food and water inside, which we brought from home. The trick is to increase the sale of their products. If we have snacks with us then we don't buy costly snacks. Yes, there is no other way but to go for the costly things which available near to the hall. Once we had tea and one tea costs Rs. 50

@akp100 In my place most of the old theaters allow you to carry water and snacks especially when there are small children . So, you can take a picnic lunch, snack whatever you want with you LOL . Honestly I hate it when people bring , basketfull of food into the theater and keep eating and making a mess
@kiran8 Yes, it will mess up seats for sure. It can create problem to people for next show if something like liquid of something fall on seats. Here most of the theaters don't allow outside food. Yes if kids are too young then kind of milk and other thing is allowed.
