What did you eat during the last movie you watched?

Postby JP » Tue Jan 26, 2010 7:47 am

Inspired by the discussion of Avatar :D Long movie needs a lot of food.

My tally was:

- a litre of orange juice
- bag of crisps
- 100g of roasted cashew nuts
- purefit protein bar
- 4 rasberry doughnuts
- couple sweets, but only a couple...

Probably a PB in calorie count :lol:

Nothing. If I'm watching at home I might have a bottle of Bernard Free or Erdinger Alkoholkfrei, but eating in the cinema is for savages.

Last time I went to the cinema I smuggled in a packet of pumpkin seeds & ate the lot - did feel sick afterwards.

Last movie: nothing. Had eaten a huge dinner at a restaurant and even though I wanted to get a Lakrisal just because I was at a movie I just couldn't.

I feel sick just reading your list JP :lol:

Not round here it's not; you get chucked out if caught. I'd guess that refreshments is where the cinemas make a lot of money, so they don't want people bringing their own food & drink in.

Not a problem in winter as one can wear a large coat (with its many pockets) without arousing suspicion. In warmer times I just stuff as much as I can in the wife's handbag :D

Eat before, eat after. It's OK to be a little bit hungry you know! You won't wither away!

People eating is one of the main reasons why I rarely go to the cinema, unless it's an action film where the sound of massive explosions is loud enough to drown out the sound of incessant rustling and crunching, and even then I tend to go to ther first showing on a Sunday when the film is at the end of its run and the chances of encountering one of these people is minimal. Luckily we now live about 1 minute's walk from a multiscreen, and 10 mins from a decent independent cinema, so we can be in and out in a flash. If I had my way all food would be banned from cinemas, people who talk would be thrown out, and people who leave halfway through to have a fag (!!!) would be refused re-entry.

This quiet cinema nazi bollocks has ruined what should be one of the great communal experiences. Why go sit in a room with hundreds of people to pretend that you are by yourself?

It's gone so far now that when I went to see the MOST IMPORTANT FILM OF RECENT TIMES - Rocky 6, the entire cinema sat in silence.

Where was the cheering? Where was the shared despair, the fraternal elation?

RUINED by the quiet sweetie paper mafia, that's where.

I suspect there was no cheering because everyone had their mouths stuffed with crisps or had nipped out for a fag.

Just to be clear, I try to avoid sitting in a room with hundreds of people, instead going to the cinema at unsocial hours to increase the chances of the audience being comprised of just me and the wife. People like you and JP ruin the hard work of cinematographers, composers and sound designers everywhere. You should be ashamed.

I'm with Ninearms, I go to the cinema for the facilities of big screen and quality sound system. I don't need to be told 'aww, he's died' by the people behind me when I can see it, or that 'its boring init'.

And anyone who answers a phone in the cinema should be publicly shat one.

i think people like ninearms and konstantin should be banned from posting this thread, akin to people who preach abstenance on a good sex thread.
