If I want to eat at the movies, I usually sneak something in, like a candy bar or a soda.

However, they're supposed to be rebuilding the cinema near where I live and adding stadium seating and a restaurant, so I might have to check that out.

One cinema I remember that had good food was a place in Maine called Chunky's. Basically it was a restaurant where they play movies. The seats were ripped out of old Lincolns. :P

As far as I know, none of my local cinemas have a problem with people taking in food from outside, so I often do. If they did start to take issue with it, I'd probably just stop going there - I live in a big city, so there's plenty of other cinemas around. What right do they have to dictate to us where we can buy our food?

Rarely goto the movie. Last two time my sister bought massive amount of salty popcorn just to get my bloodpressure up :)

Yes. I have brought in soft drinks and some snack food my mom made. Better than the popcorn with the rancid butter. I can't stand the smell of that stuff.

I haven't.


No, but we did get caught sneaking an entire picnic into the Royal Albert Hall when we were going in for a concert :lol: That's when we were in the plebs seating though. Another time, when we got upgraded for some reason, they couldn't care less what we had with us :?

I often sneak food into the cinema as I usually go after work on a Monday or Tuesday night, before I go to my RPG group, so I invariably have a carrier bag of stuff with me that nobody ever looks into. I will buy stuff from the cinema if I feel like it, though - but definitely not all the time, as it's so horribly expensive.

It's not illegal to sneak food in. What are they going to do, have you arrested for it? There is no law saying you can't bring food into theaters.

Yeah.

I smuggle lots of sweets, but eat them quietly. I don't like to pay that much. :)

I hate it when in the middle of the movie, some fat guy walks in late grazing and scoffing popcorn in his mouth blurting out "SORRY I'M LATE, WHAT DID I MISS?"

Funny to see that chubby man though. :D

All the time. I'm not stupid to pay $10 for a thing of candy. I could write a book about it.

Once when I was little, they suspected my mom and me of smuggling food and tried to search our bags.
