Small popcorn. Coke. Twizzlers. Glosette Raisins.

Minstrels and a Coke...bought at local supermarket and smuggled in, of course (not sure what it's like elsewhere in the world, but Cineworld cinemas in England are extortionate for snacks).

Oh man, you got that right.
The feast that I just described... $25 easily, if not more.
I haven't smuggled snacks in so far, but God knows I should be. The bastards.

Since I watch most of my movies at home these days, my favorite is pizza.

Back in the day, when I used to go to the movies all the time, I would get two boxes of Milk Duds and a large Coke.

In the old days, Popcorn, Goobers and a large Pepsi!

Rarely go these days, but when I do I just share some Corn with my Sis who also shares her drink into my small courtesy cup.

Air...I haven't bought snacks at the movies in twenty years. Too expensive, they make me want to pee halfway through the movie, and I can't stand the sounds of crinkling wrappers and crunched-up popcorn and ice rattling around inside a cup.

When I was little, it was usually popcorn and a Coke. These days, I'll sometimes get a small Coke (especially if it's a long movie) just so I have something to sip on, but otherwise I don't really bother with snacks anymore. Depending on the show times, I'll occasionally get something for lunch or dinner before or after I see a movie.

Popcorn and Milk Duds which now cost too much at a movie.

Folks, the popcorn must be real butter, right , oh heaven. As for milk duds I think that candy has put more money in the dentist's pockets or as much as peanut brittle.

The combination of Reese's Pieces and buttered popcorn can't be beat. Of course, I need something to wash it down. Only Cherry Coke will do.

I like hot dogs and various candies, but my favorite is still popcorn, probably at least in part because of the romance I associate with the rituals and traditions of moviegoing, and definitely also because I can salt it as much or as little as I'd like.

I used to drink sodas, but I don't like them as much these days as I once did. Nowadays unsweetened tea is my main beverage of choice when eating outside the home, whether it's in a theater or in a restaurant.

I always get a jumbo bucket of Diet Coke, and a bladder full of regrets about 2 hrs into what is more and more frequently these days a 2.5/3 hr movie.

When I was a kid it had to be heavily-buttered popcorn. In later years it was Milk Duds ("Great, now I can get rid of my few remaining teeth.") but for the longest time it was Sno-Caps. For the past couple of decades, nothing.

TO JIM- It reminds me of that funny skit I once saw, why some people don't buy any snacks when they go into the movie theatres these days. They show a man well dressed with expensive clothes on entering the theatre , then they show him going to the concession stand, the last shot shows him leaving the theatre naked , no clothes on [ha-ha-ha-ha]

While we are talking about snacks, folks, let me tell you a real funny event that happened in the movie theatre years ago I was watching tales from the crypt-72- if you are familiar with the film, the first tale in this anthology film has JOAN COLLINS being terrorized by a maniac after she killed her husband, they all were moral plays you see. So there is one scene where nearly everyone in the theatre jumps[when the hands coming through the window attacks joan], the man sitting in front of me had a large box of popcorn, full at the time. When that scene came up the whole contents of that box went flying in the air and landed on me and other viewers near him, oh what a laugh everyone had, even the man who lost all the popcorn, the good old days.
