    I always bring my own candy. Usually Reese's sticks, pieces or cups (love that PB). Uno and Rocky Road bars are also good movie-going eatin'.

    I wish someone would invent some kind of popcorn in a bag that was self-heating. You know, like when you pull the cord on a lifevest and it fills up with CO2 but an instant heating unit instead that would heat the popcorn enough to pop it. I would take that into a theater instead of buying their crap. Either that or smuggle in my own microwave to pop it fresh.

    With the insane prices of snacks at the theater, I usually never get anything. Sometimes I will smuggle in my own stuff, usually fast food, because I can get a whole meal or two for the prices they are charging for their concessions. Women have it so easy, since they carry purses they can smuggle food in so much easier.

    That sounds a lot like me. Maybe we were seperated at birth.

    Being as how my bladder is the size of a pea I don't get anything to drink out of fear of needing a bathroom break. I usually don't get anything to eat either because it generally annoys me when I'm subjected to the masses stuffing their faces with little regard as to how loud they're being. What I can't understand is why so many people feel the need to eat in a movie? I mean come on its only a couple of hours and popcorn has to be the most annoying food to listen to someone graze over. O.K. potato chips would be worse but not by much. Thank god for home theater and DVD.

    I always get a small Cherry Coke when I go to a theater. If I missed dinner or something then I will get a box of candy. What kind of candy depends on my mood at that moment (although I really dig that cookie dough candy, whatever it is called).

    People with young children have the best opportunity to sneak in food, since few theater employees will search a diaper bag for snacks.

    Why would anyone dare to search the diaper bag!?!

    Where have you been all my forum life?
    I've complained about this epidemic in the past, and I was surprised when it falled mostly on deaf ears.

    Ugh, and when people are talking before the movie while cramming that stuff into their face?
    Listen, if your hand is lying flat across your face after you "take a bite" of popcorn, you are going wayyyyyyyyyyy over the line.

    My personal smuggling record is 2 one liter bottles of soda plus one 20 ounce bottle plus 2 bags of Skittles.

    I've been party to the introduction of a just-nuked box of Totino's pizza rolls, but it was a friend who did it . . .

    QLD, double-features are pretty standard for me, I find them quite efficient. My most recent one was a K-19/Goldmember double dip. Yes, I do pay for all of the movies I see.

    I will usually pass on getting anything from the snackbar. They practically rape you at the ticket counter with their aggregious prices. Paying $3 for a box of gummy bears (the box makes it look like there's a lot of gummies there, but there ain't) isn't my cup of tea.

    I've sneaken stuff in before including opened bottles of pop in my pockets. You have to be very careful.

    But of course if someone else is buying the popcorn . . . chow time!

    I usually get 1 or 2 from the following list of my favorites:
    - Popcorn (no butter)
    - Soda (Cherry Coke if I am feeling brave enough to tackle caffine)
    - Hot Dog
    - Raisinettes
    - Sno Caps
    - Goobers
    - Frozen Bonbons
    - Icee (though not the classic flavors like plain cherry, coke, or blueberry/blue raspberry)
    - Nachos

    It's pretty pricey there, so that's why I usually only get 1 or 2 from that list. Some of the theaters in LA let you bring in outside food without hiding it, the Glendale Mann Marketplace 4 almost encourages going to one of the places in the Marketplace and bringing in food (I was shocked when they told us we could do that), but I think that's a bit too far usually.
