Movie Snacks Purchased vs. Brought From Home
At the movie theatre over the weekend, I saw a guy sit down with a pizza box. It wasn't something the cinema sold so he clearly brought it from a local pizza shop. I don't actually know the cinema's policy on whether outside food is allowed so I can't say if the man was breaking any rules or not. But the smell of the pizza was kind of distracting. I mean I LOVE pizza so I got a little envious that he got to enjoy his pie while watching the movie.
On this particular night I bought the standard large popcorn and soda. It cost more than I think it should but I'm aware that movie theatres rely on concession sales to turn a profit.
But I feel bad for parents who bring their kids to a movie. If every kid buys a snack, that becomes a really expensive night out! If I had children, I'd probably be tempted to bring snacks from home so I could save money.
Do you think people should be allowed to bring popcorn and candy from home? What about bringing in a pizza or bag of fast food?
