    The one nearby does a mean plate of nachos. I usually finish off my wife's popcorn afterwards.

    Half of GT will tell you that it's okay to take your own picnic lunch in with you, the rest will tell you that you are obligated to buy your snacks at the theater.

    Personally I am not a big snack guy so I would just get a drink. But I don't go to theaters any more. So I will say Milk Duds.

    I know it is bad for you and over priced but I can't go and not get any popcorn. I try to limit the butter & salt.

    The one I mainly go to has gotten too nice "fancy"...you can get anything from chicken fingers, pizza, and fries to hummus with pretzels or veggies.

    At the theater nearest to our house, you get 1 free refill with a large soda and large popcorn. The wife brings a couple gallon size ziplocks and dumps the first popcorn into them, and gets the refill before the movie even starts. It is tough to power through the first 99 ounce soda to make it to the refill. You really don't want to have to leave the movie to pee.

    POPCORN! Unless you are wearing eyeglasses (or 3D glasses). That buttery crap is hard not to smear all over the lenses and then you are watching the rest of the movie in a fog.

    When I was a kid, I used to eat Snowcaps whenever I went to the movies. I never ate them outside the movies for some reason, even though I loved them. Weird how that works.

    Count me among those who might smuggle in a 16 oz bottle of water and a pocketfull of nuts or gorp trail mix, or a Clif bar, just in case.

    I go for the movie, not to pig out on over-priced junk.

    I bring in an empty bottle of water, slightly squished.

    To that bottle I add extracted juices of Kodiak Wintergreen.

    I don't snack much, and when I do, I have a pretty difficult time spending "theater prices" for junkfood. :)

    I just get popcorn. It's all horribly overpriced, but at least the popcorn lasts a while. If I get a box of candy it's gone before the movie even starts.

    Do you save it for later or eat it all during the movie?

    Our gives free refills with large sizes but won't eat enough...plus I don't like leaving during the movie...

    All you really need are Twizzlers and Coke. NEVER EVER EVER EVER get that "vine" crap.

    You guys are clearly going to the wrong movie theaters. :upeyes: The correct answer is a pitcher of Black Butte Porter and a wood fired pizza.

    Retired, but not expired.
    Raisonettes and a two gallon Coke. I always get that, and I always hate myself about half way through the movie when it starts churning. :supergrin:
