Do You Sneak Snacks Into the Movie Theaters?

Do You Sneak Snacks Into the Movies?

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?

There is a dollar store right next to our movie theater that sells the same drinks and candy as the theater. Why pay $4 for something I can get for $.50?

Yes, but not to save money. Although that is a nice perk. I do it because they don't sell snacks that are healthy and fit with my food intolerances.

I don't, but not because I think it's wrong. I just try not to eat too many snacks anyway, and I can totally go two hours without stuffing something into my mouth. I really don't like anything movie theaters have to offer, either.
