I can't stand people that don't get something to eat at the theater. If you're not supporting the theater showing you your film, and you're not enjoying yourself because it's too expensive or bad for you than you're a faggot.

I buy food just to throw it on the floor. I'm showing the theater how much I love them by buying the food, and then I show the janitor how much I love them by making sure they have a job.

I'm the greatest cinephile ever.

You're supporting the theatre when you buy a ticket you dumb twat

You're doing god's work, anon.

I'll usually get a large coke or something but very rarely get something to eat since my friends and i usually get something to eat before the screening. Plus the only good food is usually candy or something that comes in a bag, and I don't want to rustle it and make noise during the film.

>The most satisfying *ksch* sound as you open a 1 liter of soda and everyone gives you that knowing, slightly disgusted yet still envious look.

I show the janitor here how much I appreciate his job too :^)
>>
>>64607624
So I should be required to spend over $20 every time? Fuck off, this isn't a charity.
>>
Buying drinks is expensive and makes me have to pee 70% thorugh the movie.
>>
>because of all the mass shootings they search bags (even purses) at the theatre now as they take your ticket
>i now have no easy way to bring in my sandwich, chips, candy, and gatorade

shit sucks.

Large salted popcorn + Diet Coke/Fanta

Every time.

Cinema makes 0 money from ticket sales anyway.

I guess next time I go shopping for clothes I should buy 10 extra pairs of jeans I don't need to 'support' the store for selling clothes.

For the price of concessions I might as well wait for the BlueRay / Stream release.
>>
What am I supposed to do with the food while I am in the designated cinema showers?
>>
>>64607624
Some anon in another thread that supposedly worked in the business said that it was the opposite - most of the money goes to the studio, not the theater.
>>
>>64607794
No because the store is making a profit off the initial pair you bought you fucking idiot

I worked concessions at a theatre for a while. Over 10 bucks for a large popcorn and a drink, more than we made in an hour. I'll pass

But that's what I said....

At the cinema I used to work in, the regular and large popcorn boxes fit the same exact amount of popcorn in them. The large only looked larger because it was thinner at the bottom

Don't give these people anything
>>
>being a glorified carneval stand with attached projector
>demanding money for fucking popcorn
>going out of business within the next few decades

Choke on a fat one, cinema.
>>
I'm really short, i don't like snacking, i turn my phone off during the film and i don't get up to piss.

I should start a business where you pay for my ticket and i sit in the seat infront of you. I get to see a free movie and you don't get blocked or annoyed by phones/distractions. Maybe i can even get a whole bunch of my well mannered manlet friends to create a circle of consideration around you, for a fee of course.

Damn nigga i gotta go on shark tank with this shit

Do you bring your own falcons, or do I have to supply them?

What are you implying, that it should be free?

I can't carry food into the screens due to the weight of my anvil.

Million dollar app idea: best movie piss break time. Review team (or community driven) sees the movie and within 24 hours posts at what time that inevitable "literally why" 5 minute scene occurs in the second half when you can safely go piss and not miss anything pertinent to the plot.

Optional: includes a very brief synopsis of what happens that you can read on your way back from the pisser (before reentering the theater so as to not disturb other patrons of course).
>>
>>64608341
I'm 90% sure that that app already exists

Oh shit, it does. It's RunPee in the Google play store. How cool.

Anon, you have to understand what the markup is. Popcorn and Soda are cheap as fuck to buy. Then they turn around and mark it up 1000% to make a profit.
>>
>>64608626
That is what people are willing to pay for the convenience of having warm popcorn during their movie. If they sold it for less than that they would go out of business. There are mark ups involved with running a halfway decent theater as well.

I get it. Trust me. But you're average schlub thinks that they are buying things at cost.
