I don't usually snack when I go, but if the movie is at lunchtime, Mom and I will share a diet Coke, pizza and candy.

The "buttered"popcorn is positively disgustingly saturated with fat. Its not even real butter. Its some kind of transfat that has a butter flavoring.

If I'm hungry, I'll stop for a snack before or after the movie - I never eat during. It's just plain too expensive. I've read that theaters make most of their money from that. However, this means that we need to reform the industry! Instead of punishing average people who want to treat their families to an outing, how about not paying actors $10 million per movie? NOBODY needs to earn that much, sorry.

And remember the corn is GMO.

Thank you we need to know what we're eating and what's available.

I might gain weight, but it won't be because of movie food. I rarely go, and when I do, I don't spend $15 for popcorn and a soda.
