At the movies....
 
We all know the cost of going to the theater to watch a movie is so expensive! So what do you do to bring down the cost?

Me...I bring my own snacks!

Movies are one of the few times that I ever carry a purse. Snacks, cookies, soda/tea, cake, and whatever else may fit!

Though these days I rarely go out to the movies. Too many people around to really sit back and enjoy a film. Would rather be patient and wait for a film to come out, then watch it at home on my 84" tv. It's just like the movies, but without all the dang kids chattering through the good parts of the film.

I have gotten to the point I don't like going to the movies that much anymore. I don't think they are making anything worth taking out a second mortgage to see. LOL! When we do go, we try to catch a matinee or use the old folks discount. :)

I bring my own drink and snacks. I sneak them in using my backpack lol

I join the email club. They send me coupons for discounted or even free snacks or tickets. Even then, we try to catch the matinee.

Our local movie theater is old, but you can't beat the prices. It's like $5 per person. Only problem with it, they only show one movie per week or sometimes two.

One day during the week we get a cheap day at the movie theatres - costs $6 and I bring snacks and soda with me, they don't mind.

Yes, $2 movies and discount matinees. Our local theater sells books of tickets at a discount.

We bought the CarMike popcorn bucket and can get refills all year for $5.

I totally agree...it's expensive!! We went to see The Lone Ranger last week with my dad...there were 5 adults and 3 kids which came to $50 and then we got 3 buckets of popcorn, 1 icee drink, 1 box of candy, and 4 drinks which came to $52....CRAZINESS!! :hypnotize:hypnotize

My thing we would've ate before we went so we would be full and we would've got two drinks (but I buy the loyalty cups and get $1 refills) and if they had to have something, we would've shared a big popcorn....but since the grandparents are here visiting and paying the kids get whatever they want...so thankful they got the tab! :thumbsup:

I remember my mom and I would sneak food....we would go to Whataburger and order meals...then she would bring her big purse and we would load it up and eat our Whataburger inside the movie...lol...good times...good times!! :thumbs_up:thumbs_up
