Yes. It's expensive as hell but going to the movie theater just doesn't feel right for me if I don't buy popcorn.

*beer-bro fist* I don't get why theaters don't just sell it. Their profits would be through the roof.

This thread would have benefitted from a poll. I don't buy popcorn or drinks. I eat pretty healthy, so I usually don't want either. Sometimes I'll smuggle a bag of candy inside Miss Palantas' purse.

About 1/2 the time because I know how paper thin most theaters profit margins are. http://ycharts.com/rankings/industries/Movie%20Production,%20Theaters/profit_margin

Yeah, maybe hot air corn you make at home. I doubt the theatre popcorn is all that good for you.

I usually get the nachos special that comes with a drink. I'll only get a popcorn if Im sharing or if I just had something to eat prior to going to the theater.

Apparently. They're a distribution company, so it shows they are paying to have the rights to certain things without turning a profit on them.

Not for me. It might enhance a sh!tty movie, but I'm pretty selective about what I see in first-run theatres. So far this year, it's been:

  1. The Avengers

So I'm 1/1.

Usually just drinks.

Popcorn is usually very mediocre at movie theaters.

If I go to a theater I might buy popcorn and a drink, but I can count how many times I have been to a movie theater in the past 10 years on one hand.

I'd do that but by the time I bought it, got there and inside, the burger would be cold and nasty. I'd love to have a McDonalds double cheeseburger while in a movie though. :cool:

No, I'm very serious about film, so I don't even let Miss Palantas' snatch distract me from a movie I'm intent on seeing. :)

The nachos are always hit or miss. For the price of them I don't want my cheese already congealed.

Yes. Always. I know that the theater's profits on tickets are razor thin, so most of their money comes from concessions, and I want them to stay in business. Plus a soda and popcorn are part of the experience for me.

Yeah that's pretty much me as well, although it's not so much me having a concern over the major chain theatres that I go to surviving as I just think it's part of the movie going experience.
