My wife used to do that shit all the time. I put a stop to it.

Well, I always do. Chocolate & sodas, fuck their over-inflated prices.

This. There's one of those second-run theaters by me, they only charge $3 for a ticket, and they have sane prices on the concessions. Them, I don't mind giving my money to.

I do both. I buy a popcorn but usually they don't have the candy or soda or jerky I want so I bring my own. Wife buys a soda from them.

I never watched it in theaters. But knowing what I know now, I would definitely bring along an entire meal.

I refuse to pay the outrageous costs that the theater charges. The wife always loads her purse up with snacks.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 4:59:13 PM EST
We don't go to the movies a lot, maybe 5-6 times a year, but when we do, wife always brings in snacks/candy for the kids. I don't see the big deal.

I highly doubt it's an actual law. The most they can do is ask you to leave.

... Completely unrelated to your circumstances, but I don't feel bad at all either

I have taken a beer or two in, in my younger days. I would have happily paid for it, if they sold it.

The fun part was timing the opening of the can with something loud on the screen.

I wish they'd just get rid of theaters and go straight to DVD/BluRay.

In high school we perfected the art of carrying in 6 bottles of beer in our waste bands. I see no problem with it.

I worked at a movie theatre in high school and they gave us free movie tickets but not even a discount on drinks, popcorn or anything else. Whatever girl I was dating at the time would bust out her big purse and we'd bring burgers and all kinds of food into a movie.

These days they are inspecting purses like the fucking TSA. I'm surprised they aren't patting people down yet. Body scanners are next.

The theater we go to has recliners and a wait staff. You can get snacks, drinks and/or a full meal if you want it. It's awesome. It's the only theater we go to now. It costs more, but it is worth it.

We have one of those where we live, too.

No kids (no one under 21 in alcohol serving studios) heated recliner chairs, attendant service, etc...it's brought me back to the theater.

I mostly agree with this. Once in a while I'll want to see something on the real big screen but usually I'm good with my big screen.

My Dad got into a near shouting match with some guy in a wheelchair because he wouldn't STFU in a movie once.

It is a hilarious story.

If he came here and told the story on ARFCOM it would have been an epic thread.



(I think he actually is a member here too, but I doubt he's ever posted anything).

I don't want to run the risk of having to get up and pee during the movie.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 5:58:38 PM EST
Movies are too expensive and inconvenient for me.
First you have to drive there, and it has to be at a time when your show is playing.
Then if you have to go to the bathroom you miss some of the movie.
Then there are the rude / loud other moviegoers.

I prefer to wait a few weeks and buy the DVD, watch it when i want and as often as i want.

At my local movie theater, I can get a beer for $0.50 more than a coke or about the same price as water…
