Do you buy the all time favorite... popcorn and soda... or do you prefer the less conventional type of food while watching movies... some people prefer candy, crackers, potato chips, or they even bring their own pizza inside the movie house... In my case... every time i go to the movies... which is always during lunch time... i always buy MacDonald's cheeseburger, large french fries, and a large coke... sometimes i instead of the cheeseburger... i buy chicken nuggets... that that will be considered as my lunch already... I love eating while watching a movie...

Corn and potato... well that can indeed be a good combination... but i haven't tried that one yet... maybe in the future... but i am sure a bottle of coke would make it perfect... thanks for the response... welcome to mylot and i hope you enjoy your stay here...

Popcorn with butter and a coke . Popcorn at the movies always is so much better . If in a candy mood i will have candy .When i was a kid my mom would put snacks in her purse . One time there was a couple who ate burger king there .

Usually a large popcorn with extra butter, large coke with ice and some type of candy. Sometimes, if I didn't eat before the movie, I buy a large hotdog.

Now and days the food at the movies is so we usally just take our own snacks. But if I was to buy I would get popcorn with extra butter and nachos and something to drink.

Popcorn is like the official food in movie theaters... i wonder who invented it... that person sure made watching movies more fun... well i myself would always eat a burger inside a movie house... a little messy but good for the tummy... thanks for the response...

Twizzlers are really yummy fruity licorice! The strawberry flavor is the most popular, but they do have cherry flavor and I've even tasted chocolate! And thanks!

Before going to see a movie... we always go to "Candy corner" to buy "cheetos", "Ruffles" and "M&M" or popcorns and fries from NYFD.. Ofcourse... the big big DRINKS!

Hello-I've been around for a while but don't log on much. But thanks for the welcome. Another name for sno-caps are non-pareils...they remind me of my grandmother-they aren't around much any more:(. Little drops of semi-sweet chocolate covered with little white candy balls.

Mojo potatoes are also good... i like the ones that we can buy at Shakey's... although quite expensive... so i don't buy them that often... only when budget permits me to... so i'll take the fries and popcorn instead... thanks for the response...

It is nice to munch some food while watching a movie... that makes the whole experience complete... but in my case... i always finish the food before the movie even starts... well, that just means i should take more inside... thanks for the response...

Hello aseretdd, Me too! I enjoy watching movies and eating junk food at the same time *laughs* Since there is a strict regulation that you can only buy and bring food that you buy from the cinema food operator, I always bring in popcorn (light and sweet) and a big size Coke. Normally I finished up the snack before the movie even started *laughs* I love to watch trailers and make it a point to enter once they allow us to enter the theater hall, and sit and talk and eat...before the movie starts...

I love pepsi and red vines. One of my dumb things I did? I volunteered to offer to buy 8 kids snacks if the other person bought tickets. Big mistake! These weren't little kids but teens-LOL I was amazed on how much I spent and the cost of candy and sodas, pop corn, pretzels, corn dogs ect... Even the movies? $9.50???

When i go to the movies with my family (niece, nephews, parents, siblings) always offer to buy the tickets... so that my other adult companion will be compelled to buy the snacks... snacks cost more especially if there are a lot in the group... even if most are kids... thanks for the response...

I used to have lunch at a moviehouse also hahaha. This was way back when we just wanted to rush into a movie because at noon time there aren't a lot of people yet. We don't want to be standing watching half of the movie especially if it's a blockbuster. We've experienced this a lot of times with Harry Potter and LOTR trilogy. But nowadays I make sure I had my lunch already before going in. I just buy the bottled water. I don't like to eat popocorn really because I don't like getting distracted by having to wipe the cheese powder from my hands.

In my case... if the movie is considered as a blockbuster... i wait a few weeks before watching it... since i don't like it when the movie theater is too crowded... people moving around distracts me from understanding the film... thanks for the response...

We just have regular popcorn, candy and soda at our movie theatres. They don't allow full blown meals. If they did, I'd buy the chicken nuggets. They sound good.

Well it is a good thing that movie houses in my country are not that strict when it comes to food... as long as we follow the rules on what not to bring inside... like ketsup packets and sticks... thanks for the response...

we usually watched movies after dinner that is why we bring nothing or eat inside the movie house, i want to concentrate the movie without disturbing from eating something. it is not my habit also to eat inside the theater. most of my time spent to the story. i hate a companion that always talking watching the movie.

I always go to a gas station before and sneak in food that I buy there. It's the most economical way to do it... even if it's kind of wrong.

I don't think there is anything wrong with that... the food sold at movie houses can be too expensive... and since most of us want to save money... we tend to just buy food where they are cheaper... thanks for the response...
