As for movie snacks, I always just bring a Tootsie Pop or two. First I eat the lollypop, then I gnaw on the stick till it unravels. When I leave the theater, I'm covered with white stick fragments.Trini -------------------------I always wondered why people have to eat in movie theaters.Why can't they just sit there quietly and watch the film?I know movies have a very different etiquette from symphonies or operas or plays....But when I'm in an opera - or symphony - or play....WOE BE UNTO THE PERSON WHO IS EATING AND RATTLING PAPERS AND, ESPECIALLY, TALKING. It's so extremely disrespectful to the performers - not to mention the other patrons who have spent big bucks for tickets.I was once at the symphony where Kathleen Battle was singing -- and a woman in a row in front of me was eating peanuts out of a celophane bag. I swear, if I had had a gun, I would have shot her on the spot. (Well...not really... but I definitely wanted to.)At least eating a tootsie pop would be fairly silent - once you get it unwrapped. And movies DO have a different etiquette...as I said.But the question, for me, still remains: Why not eat before you go to the theatre? Or afterwards? Can't Americans go for a whole two hours without eating? ;o)AM....p.s. this is not a personal attack on Trini - or anything even close to one. :)
