Remember when a hot date was dinner and a movie? Well, after our experience seeing Gravity 3D we are altering our usual movie experience.
Many times we attend the movie closest to lunch time and have popcorn and soda for our meal, and have enjoyed this...until lately.
It seems that if you are the first movie of the day you get stuck with the stale popcorn from last night. Not only stale...but overpriced.,
The tickets were $22 due to the special 3D glasses you wear and then give back and the one large popcorn and one large soda was $19. If the popcorn was tasty maybe I could overlook it since you can refill it for free. We took half the bag home to feed to the blackbirds and they didn't look thrilled about it either.
So our new approach will be to have lunch prior to the movie and smuggle in our beverages when the costs are this high.
Oddly enough, we've been to other movies where the popcorn was only $5 and the soda $4. It's the same stuff so I'm not sure why the wide discrepancy. Needless to say we won't be revisiting that theatre anytime soon.
Long Live the Queen of Cheap Dates
