Normally we go to the small independent theater in town which seems OK with me bringing my own stuff in. I've walked in with reusable water bottles and candy I bought ahead of time with no problems. However this time we went to a chain theater the next town over because we specifically wanted the non-3D movie. As we were standing at the box office dropping $40 on movie tickets, I glanced to the side and saw a big sign that said your own food and beverages were not allowed beyond that point or into the theaters.
I chuckled to myself "Just you try and stop me!" To my advantage I was carrying an infant and being trailed by 3 little boys. So with that comes a big ole diaper bag. A diaper bag that I had packed with 3 Thermos cups of water and some Revolutions Foods Grammy Sammys and Jammy Sammys. We got settled into our seats and then the boys all enjoyed a yummy snack while watching the previews (which were like 20 minutes - ugh!). And of course they loved the movie, we are big Buzz and Woody fans in this house. Mommy liked it too.
So do you bring your own food and drink into a movie or am I the only crazy one? What are some things you have brought and did you ever have any trouble with staff?
