    I don't know about anyone else, but I bring my own treats to the movie theater. When the cost of a bottle of water comes to $4 CDN. and the theater policy is to not allow outside food and beverages, I feel there is no other choice for me.

    Does that technically put me in the wrong?...I think it does, but I don't think what the movie theaters do is right either.

    And all the time, everybody does. Cause it's obnoxious that they don't sell hot cheetos, and i love hot cheetos. And the expensive part too [​IMG]

    most of the time I bring it myself, very rarely I buy something. The prices in the theater over here are way, way to high. A bag of m&ms in the supermarket here costs €2.50 or something, over there you pay €5.50, and drinks are even worse. Beer is like tripple the price.

    I end up doing it all the time. Technically they can throw me out but most of the time I don't want the crap they sell at the theatre. Nobody's ever stopped me even when its in plain sight.

    I think it is funny people have been conditioned to *need* food and drink at the movies. It's like people can't go an hour and a half without eating something.

    its basically like an instinct at the movies, you really cant get that type of popcorn at home with the microwave, its much better tasting

    you get popcorn but they make it so salty that it makes your throat dry now you need to pay crazy prices to get a beverage

    It is an instinct because they have trained you to want it in the same way they have trained women to want diamonds.

    Over here your allowed to bring your own stuff to the movies. (as far as I know) I tend not to though. The prices aren't THAT outrageous over here, I only buy Popcorn and a drink anyway.

    I love McChickens even without the chicken it would be so delicious mostly because the mayonaise is so awesome.
    Also the same people who make me eat the popcorn also killed Tupac.NOOOOO!
