Why do refreshments cost so much at the movies? I never buy them, because it seems like such a waste of money.
Movie theaters don’t make money on ticket prices–virtually all of that goes to the studios. Perhaps Don can verify this, but the only real profit margin theaters have is through refreshments. Hence the high prices…
So, in reality, sneaking food into a theater is ‘worse’ (from the theater’s financial perspective) than buying refreshments but sneaking into a second movie after the first one ends.]]>
The money was from me. Your “Mormons are cheapskates” post really started getting to me.]]>
Isn’t it ok if they feel guilty at first while still taking food in but do it enough (while feeling guilty enough) to finally take the action to do right? Change is usually (for me, anyway) a gradual thing.]]>
I had a situation where they didn’t carry what I wanted to eat, so I offered to pay them for the food if they would just let me take in what I wanted to eat.
Does that count?]]>
