Anybody thinking they are clever doing this is like the dumbest person ever.


Who the fuck thinks they're clever for doing this?

You guys make up the weirdest shit in your head.

I just bring candy from the store in my coat/pants pockets. You get more for the same price so yeah >_>

The cost is so egregious you'd be silly not to.


People acting like cheating the theater out of needed revenue is what smart people do, right here.

I shouldn't have to pay more than the price of a ticket just for soda and popcorn AND not be able to bring in my own food. That's not a convenience upcharge, that's extortion. They need to pick one or the other.

The theater near my place is smart, they lowered the ticket prices to $5's permanently and they're making serious bank with the concessions. I know because I'm doing their taxes and I'm surprised not more theaters are following it.

I'm fine if they charge whatever they want to buy food on the premises, but I should be able to at least bring my own.

It's how they make money, they make like 0 dollars from the tickets themselves. If you think it's a shit deal then don't go to the movies or go and don't get food. But people who just don't ever buy concessions because "people spending the extra money so that the place you enjoy going to makes revenue are chumps" are dumb.

It's the same logic of people who don't tip, no, you haven't "cracked the code" you are just cheap and refusing to participate in these institutions at face value.

As fucking if that's the only way they make money. Tickets here are 15 bucks.

I'll do what I please thanks.

Also if your business model relies on selling candy pop and popcorn at a gigantic markup that's what I'd call one shitty business model.

Like there are some circumstances I understand: If you have dietary limitations then maybe bring your own snack but buy a soda, if you are SUPER SUPER poor but love movies then ok you can bring snacks maybe, but when you start making money you'll start supporting the business that is providing you entertainment. Even people who are like "yeah, it kinda makes me a dick, but it's what I'm going to do", like I don't really respect that, but I can at least acknowledge the person is taking ownership.

What I loathe are the people who act like they "cracked the code" like they are somehow clever for noticing that things cost more in the theater. "With how much money you save, you'd be an idiot not to". I hate people like that so much. No shit it's more expensive, that is where the theater makes a lot of it's money, you aren't being smart you are being cheap. At least take ownership of that. If you are at peace with kinda cheating the theater out of revenue so the rest of us have to make up for it (which is probably part of the reason concessions are so expensive) then so be it.

I have already quoted 2 people in this topic doing that, and they aren't the only ones.

Also it's not a charity, but it is a business that provides a service we value. Supporting such a business in sincerity is the not dick thing to do. Unless you are like crazy poor. Being cheap and skirting the rules and procedures of places is not a virtue. Even you are kinda acting like it is because you are acting like there is nothing of value in interacting with a business on it's established terms.
