Is it wrong to bring one’s own food into a movie theater?
I’ve been going to movies most of my life and I’ve never seen a sign or anything. There really should be some big-ole “No outside food or drink” sign on the door if they want to enforce that. Often, when I go to the movies I bring my popcorn bucket and I smuggle drinks in. Sometimes I also have beef jerky or candy stuffed into my pockets. I’ve even gone as far as bringing in cheeseburgers. I’ve got a coat with big pockets to enable this surreptitious gastronomy. It makes me feel like Harpo Marx.
I’ve always believed it was somehow wrong to do this, but I did it anyway. On Wednesday, while enjoying the roller coaster ride that is King Kong (special effects suck early on, but get a lot better!), it occurred to me that there’s no sign or anything. How do I know you can’t bring in outside food? I decided that I’m going to keep doing it, but I’ll look more carefully for the sign, and enjoy the espionage.
maybe it’s just me…
