Sneaking food into the theater?

We all know how expensive theater food is (here in the US at least), because that's thier main source of income.

Winter is here & I brought out the leather coat with the deep pockets and I thought... what the heck ! So I brought a can of coke with me to save a few bucks by not having to buy a bigger-than-I-need drink at the concession stand.

The past 5 years or so I stopped bringing my own food into the theater, becuase I decided that I would just splurge & treat myself to the usual theater food I like & buy (hotdog & oversized drink combo , with an order of nachos w/jalepenos).

But I have become more frugal the past couple of years (to put more into my savings accounts) & I decided against spending so much at the theater. Usually i would spend roughly $13 on the hotdog,drink & nachos meal... so I cut down & brought my own drink which saves me about 3 bucks per movie trip.

Thinking about bringing out the old stainless steel bullet-thermos & sticking it in my leather coat's deep pocket again (like I used to do)... one can of coke isnt enough for me.



Just curious? do you regularly sneak food into the theater?


note: I have never liked eating candy while at the theater.... I like to eat a meal.

Just put a couple cups of popcorn kernals into your ass and sneak them into the theater. Then by the natural heat of your anus the popcorn will pop up and you can get as much as you want(or as much as your rectum can hold)

I always take my own candy and drinks in. It's like five bucks for a medium drink in the theaters over here. I'll only spend money on popcorn or nachos.

Go to convience store, use the 10 bucks that WOULD have bought me a soda and candy, and load up with a couple packs of candy and some energy drinks.

Then stuff it in my pockets. I go to a small and kinda old theater so they don't really care as much. The newer ones are a bitch about it.

I've never NOT sneeked in food. Fuck if I'm going to spend 900% on a pack of skittles. Sometimes I'll wear my big fluffy coat and stick a whole bag of popped popcorn in there.

The theaters here stopped checking for outside food in the last couple years. I doubt it's really affected their income. The most common food sold in a theater is popcorn and the markup on that is in the thousands of percent. Most people aren't going to go out of their way to bring in outside popcorn.
But since the rule change people have been bringing in full KFC meals, birthday cakes and breakfast cereal :hilarious:

I always bring a giant purse when I go to the theater, and I always stuff all my friends' shit in there. I would never pay theater-price for snacks and drinks.

I've bought popcorn, though. At my favorite theater, a large is like $8, but it comes with free refills, so split between a bunch of people, it's a good deal.

I bring food into the theater, but I have rarely had to hide it. The 17 year old kid who takes your ticket and is five minutes from his break doesn't care if you brought your own drinks.

i dont eat the food there, i normally just get a tree fity dollar large soda with free refills.

then one day i just walked in with hot chocolate from a gas station down the road(i get the cocoa for free) and bought my ticket, put the cup on the counter to pull out the money, and walked into the movie. three employees saw, and none cared.

I have a friend that wears sweatpants and will stick a 20oz bottle of pop next to his junk when we're going to movies.

It was kinda embarrassing when I was looking to see if it was noticable and realized I was staring at this dude's crotch for the last 30 seconds.
