Best part of seeing this in the theater...


is people will load up on sugary snacks and beverages at the concession stand before seeing it... and blame someone else after they leave the theater with empty wrappers and cups. Wah.

Any chance the theater will be selling fresh fruit and bottled water that day? Maybe the folks making this movie will? Yeah... I don't think so either.

the flaw in your "logic" is that nobody will be paying to see this in the theater

I just got back from seeing in the theater, with quite a few others.

And...well? What was everyone eating?

I brought grapes to the cinema recently. Was a very satisfying choice. Perhaps cinemas SHOULD sell things like that? :)

I often bring a bottle of water, but I generally can't avoid the temptation to get a coke too.

Still, I always make sure I get the 'no sugar' versions of coke. (I am not convinced by the wholly inconclusive evidence concerning the sweeteners so far.)

$7 grapes. I can see it now.

Considering the cost and profit involved in popcorn and soda, which are basically forever materials in terms of shelf life, grapes would probably be priced around $25 to $30 bucks. I remember popcorn and soda used to be reasonably priced when I was a kid, or course about the time I started to go to movies regularly tickets were $2, but snacks were like $1 ... now snacks cost much more than the tickets. Theaters used to actually hire competent adults to be ushers, with flashlights they would lead people to their seats and make sure folks were not being rude. Now they hire the mentally disadvantaged that are just paid nothing to clean up the increasingly messy and rude messes that people are now used to leaving.

That is so true. I see mentally challenged people in there all the time and wonder how anything gets cleaned up!

The theater in which I paid to view this film last night was packed.

I don't know though if those there paying $12 for laced popcorn and soda were bemoaning that healthy food is expensive.
