Things People Sneak Into A Movie Theater

People sneak food and candy into movie theaters for a variety of reasons.

Concession stand items at movie theaters are often significantly more expensive than similar items purchased elsewhere. Sneaking in their own snacks allows moviegoers to save money.

Preference and variety are other reasons why people do it.

The selection of food available at movie theaters is typically limited.

People bring their own food to enjoy their favorite snacks or accommodate specific dietary restrictions that the theater's offerings might not meet.

Aside from cost and dietary reasons, some people sneak in outside candy and food simply for the thrill of "being bad".

This being said, most movie theaters have policies against bringing outside food and drinks into the cinema. These policies are in place partly because concession sales are a significant source of revenue for theaters, helping to offset the high costs of operating the theater and acquiring films to show.

The next time you go to the movies and sneak in outside candy, just keep in mind that it's cutting into theater's money.

As usual, everything we do here in Acadiana is a little different than what others do around the country, and this includes the things we sneak into movie theaters.
