Why do you sneak food into the theatre

  1. Price

  2. Available choices

  3. I don't. I buy everything there.

  4. I don't. I prefer to watch the movie, not eat.

    Movie theatre food is way too fatty. Very occasionally I'll get curly fries if I'm super hungry.

    When I go to the movies, it's the one time (usually per week) where I go all out and splurge. I stay disciplined and pretty focused for the entire week on exercise and dieting, but when I get to Sunday (my 'eat anything I want until I'm stuffed and feeling ill' day), I go to extremes. When I hit the theater, usually for an afternoon show, I get a large bucket of popcorn layered with salt and butter, a huge bag of Reeses Pieces, a box of Starburst, a hot dog, nachos and a large soda. I finish ALL of it by the end of the movie and then head home. That evening, I cook a 20 oz steak, cheese potatoes and fried corn and onions and then I chow again until I can't eat another bite. I'll usually end the day with a big bowl of ice cream with all of the toppings.

    When I get up on Monday, it's back to the disciplined dieting and exercise ... until the next Sunday. It gives me something to look forward to and I don't really have to pay for it since I don't keep the weight I gained on that day (usually a pound or so).

    Ya gotta treat yourself regularly. Otherwise, you're not really living.

    Tell them you want the butter "layered". What they do is put 1/4 popcorn in, butter it, put another 1/4 in, butter it, etc. You'll have all the butter you can stand then :).

    me and my gf do exactly the same

    we check the movie times, see which movie we're interested in that starts in the next 45 mins/hour, buy the ticket and then head to any nearby fast food joint, eat, light up a ciggarrette and head back to the theatre

    sit back and enjoy the movie

    I used to go to the movies and buy an extra soda (usually a small) and spill it on the seat next to me so no one sat there :o

    I hate eating while watching a movie and this has been the reason for several fights between me and my girlfriend. She will buy the popcorn and expect me to eat :mad: Its all her fault really :o
