OK, I'll admit it: occasionally, I will sneak my own snacks into the movie theaters. But with a $12 movie ticket and popcorn, candy, and a soda coming in at well over the price of a nice dinner entrée, can you blame me? It's kind of mind-boggling to think that 10 years ago, movie tickets only averaged $5.65, and five years ago — $6.55, according to the National Association of Theatre Owners.
So with inflation and the current economic struggle, let's be honest: have you ever wormed by the movie doorman with Thin Mints in your purse or have other cheap movie tips? Or do you do what I do and make your hubby hide Jamba Juice in his coat pocket?
