    I don't enjoy the feeling of being price gouged so I get the wife to smuggle something in her hand bag. Not that I've been to a movie theatre for about 8 years. I might go again if they stop only making sequels and super hero movies.

    Have you ever been in an American movie theatre? The soft drinks come in a bucket. I have no idea how anyone could drink that much of the stuff.

    I wish it wasn't expeeeeensive. That's why I never ever buy anything at movie theaters. The popcorn's smell is pretty great though.

    It's getting that way in the UK, got to be careful to ask for a small otherwise you need a trolly to carry it around.

    And popcorn also comes in buckets

    It was the best for me too but now it's been pushed off the top shelf
    If i hadn't discovered this...

    It most definitely would be, pralines and cream is a great ice cream

    But cafe gourmand, 4 strengths of coffee ice cream from latte to espresso with edible coffee beans and caramel. And me being a coffee addict... Well, close competition but the winner is cafe gourmand.

    I like them both too, Frank. That being said, it's been over 2 years since I stepped foot in a movie theater. I haven't been to the movies since the pandemic started. I am, however, very tempted to go see the new Downton Abbey movie that comes out on the 20th. I don't know if I will or not, because I was tempted to go see the last Downton Abbey movie at the theater, but I changed my mind.

    You must be among the 1% that can afford movie theater food.

    It's been a long time since I've been to the movies. I just don't go anymore. Part of the reason is that, when I buy a soda, I find I can't make it through the movie without the need to run to the restroom. Of course, in the minutes leading up to that point, trying to hold it - it's hard to pay attention to the movie.

    Much easier to watch movies at home, where I have a pause button.

    I'm not sure, but my local movie theatre seems to have better quality soda than popcorn.

    Must be the butter they use.

    I find the popcorn stale, however granted, with the right butter, it might be good anyway.
