Re: POLL: Do you like or hate eating at the cinemas during a movie?

Apart from the popcorn, we never actually buy food or drinks from the theatre, we buy it from a supermarket and sneak it in with us. I don't know much about the layout of your cinema's, but we're lucky enough that all of the ones we frequent are either located inside a shopping mall, or just outside it, so it's fairly easy to eat for cheap.

Easy, the food inside a venue is meant to be more expensive than normal grocery prices Here in Sydney, we have a thing called the Royal Easter Show & if entry was exporbitant enough, the food prices once you get in are more than double the price anywhere else because they know that once you're in, you're kind of stuck there coz you wanna see everything & get your money's worth (from the ticket) so you'll grudgingly pay whatever $ they feel like setting

Re: POLL: Do you like or hate eating at the cinemas during a movie?

The mark up on the cost of the popcorn is phenomenal. We tend to go on the cheap nights and a pot of popcorn and a large coke will cost as much as the tickets I.e over £10.

Re: POLL: Do you like or hate eating at the cinemas during a movie?

I don't need to have something to eat while watching. But if I go to the cinema with my family then we buy some popcorn and I eat it all before the film starts. I don't mind when other people eat during a movie if they do it quietly (and they usually do it quietly).
Talking and laughing is much more annoying...

Re: POLL: Do you like or hate eating at the cinemas during a movie?

Yeah, the price of popcorn is ridiculous and our cinema is one of the only ones in this area that won't let you bring your own food or drinks! We used to smuggle bottles of juice in under our jackets but that's just too much effort!

Re: POLL: Do you like or hate eating at the cinemas during a movie?

If it's a long movie I sometimes get some popcorn.
The food at the cinema is just so expensive and you're not allowed to bring your own.

I like popcorn and pop (soft drink, soda) at a movie, but I can't have any for a while because I just got braces!

Re: POLL: Do you like or hate eating at the cinemas during a movie?

I'm not a big fan of eating in public; but I usually get a tub of popcorn and a soda when I go see a movie. I think it's more an emotional thing as it sort of sets the mood of being in a movie theater

Re: POLL: Do you like or hate eating at the cinemas during a movie?

I eat during the trailers before the movie starts. But I have a trick - take note of what food and drink they sell. They sell bottles of juice and stuff and bags of chocolate. So I go to a cheap shop in town before going to the cinema, and buy stuff that's just like what the cinema sells. When you go in, pretend you don't want anything, and when you sit down you can take stuff out of your bag. Who's going to know? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/tongue.png

Re: POLL: Do you like or hate eating at the cinemas during a movie?

If my friend and I want candy during a movie that's always the way we do it; we go to a pick'n'mix and stash out purses! And as soon as the lights are out, out comes the cheap sweets!

Candy in movie theaters is way over-priced! 


I must say a pet hate of mine is when people bring bags of crisps, I am half deaf on my left ear and I have a hard time following conversation in movies sometimes; esecially if there is other noise.

Re: POLL: Do you like or hate eating at the cinemas during a movie?

I think sneaking candy into the movies may be the most popular rule violation in all the world.

I worked part time at a cinema for a couple of years and you would be amazed at some of the other things people have snuck in.  I once found an pizza box and a 6 pack of empty beer bottles.  Don't know how they got those in.   http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/errr.png

I'm sorry, I just don't get this ' sneaking thing'.
I just sit and openly eat and drink my own stuff

"Military Movie Watchers", great, I'm one of them, I'm afraid. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cool.png

I always tend to be lucky enough to have someone sitting right beside or behind me with a huge bucket of popcorn... just perfect. I really, really can do without people rustling around in their popcorn bucket or crisps or whatever. But I guess I'm some sort of special case because I am extremely clairaudient. So I basically hear... everything. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/errr.png

I'm afraid I hate people crunching and munching in the cinema so I try not to do the same! Or else I'll bring in some nibbles that are silent when eaten! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: POLL: Do you like or hate eating at the cinemas during a movie?

I always make sure what ever I bring I can eat silently... And yes I can eat pop-corn silently 

Once I almost chocked because I was holding back a cough during a movie; I had to wait till someone else coughed. (Well also because I hate my cough, I cough like a chipmunk...)

I even did the same when I was the only person at the movie theater when watching In Time...
