I bring a regular sized candy with me (M & M's or starburst) and then get a medium drink and share it with hubby. And if I'm just starving, a hot dog. So judging from my calorie counts, I'm around 500 which isn't as bad as ordering any of that other crap!

I'm one of those people who can't stop eating popcorn once I've started. I just don't order it anymore.

That picture is of my local theater. It's called "Cinetopia." Weird!?

Until I can entirely get over the mental block of having to eat a snack at the movie theater, I've gotten into the habit of bringing along a baggie of frozen grapes or a box of raisins. By the time I'm done with it the previews are over or I'm engrossed in the movie and I'm not thinking about the Buncha Crunch I'm missing.
