My wife and I went to the movie theatre on Friday night – something we don’t get to do much since we have a five-year old daughter. Before the show, we were at a store and they had Red Vines on clearance for $1 so I picked up a pack for the movie. As I was struggling to hide that pack of Red Vines in my shorts’ pocket to sneak it into the theatre (are those Red Vines in your pocket or are you happy to see me?), I wondered how many people actually sneak candy into theatres and why?
So, I created a poll to see if I can get some answers to this burning question. Vote in the poll in the upper right of the site and we’ll tally the votes in a week and see what we find out.
Leave a comment on this post too if you want to give us more info. If you do smuggle candy in, why? For me it’s the high prices at the theatre, but I could see doing it because you have a favorite movie candy that your theatre doesn’t sell too.
Speaking of that, what is your favorite movie candy? If I’m getting popcorn, I MUST have chocolate with it. Rasinets are always good, as are M&Ms, but malted milk balls are good too. If I’m not getting popcorn, it could be anything really, depending on my mood. Maybe Red Vines, Skittles, or Junior Mints.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, we saw The Descent. Not a ground-breaking movie, but not bad. Plenty of “surprise” moments that you knew were coming. It’s essentially the same movie as last year’s The Cave.
