And then there are snacks. I'm tempted to sneak food in, but there's just something, well, sneaky about that. But after eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for dinner (we had to save money for the movie), we're hungry.
And get this. They even charge us for the 3-D glasses! Of course, we wear them! We take our grandkids, after all--well, most of the time. (We could pay off our mortgage for the price it would cost to take all of six of them.) Okay, so we wore the glasses once without the grandkids.
And get this: After we paid for the glasses and after we watched the movie, they encourage us to drop the glasses into this big barrel for recycling!! Excuse me??? Didn't I just pay for those?!
Yet, despite all this, we go--and love almost every minute of it (especially if we're eating chocolate caramel popcorn). One evening after choir practice we decided on the spur of the moment to go with another couple to the 10:00 showing of "Nanny McPhee". By 12:30 a.m., we were laughing our brains out at Steak & Shake. We should have eaten apple pie. There was just something very Americana about it all.
By the way, we've already gone to see "Bedtime Stories," and "Marley & Me". Anybody else seen those? I'm curious what you thought. I'm keeping my eye out for upcoming flicks. I'm thinking that Bride Wars looks kind of fun--in a sadistic sort of way.
Any other movie buffs out there? Do you stay home to watch them or go to the theater?
