The one thing I can't stand at the movies here is being surrounded by people scarfing popcorn. It stinks and the noise of hands scooping it up and the subsequent frantic mastication irritates me no end. Fortunately most of the movies I go to are of the more arty farty type, where the theater isn't packed. I apply the MJD thesis to most and wait for the dvd.
another reason i dont go! the snacks are much more than the movie but their such apart of the whole experience. me and da wife can rent a movie for 4 bucks and make some micro corn and some drinks for say $15. at the theatre total comes to $30 plus.

Along with jazz, movies are arguably the most important art form developed primarily in the US. And it is certainly more popular than jazz, as evidenced by the number of threads we have devoted to each around here.
Went to the theatre yesterday evening, watched Broken Flowers starring Bill Murray.
Some joker behind me thought he was cool by sneaking in a bottle of beer, a Carlsberg, to gulp down during the showing of the film. Knucklehead drops his bottle behind me, it rolls under my seat and continues down to one of the first few rows.
The movie itself has a lot of silent scenes, so the bottle rolling along the floor sounded very loud!
We get away with taking in goodies from outside - no checking of our bags.
