Years ago, an independent theater in our town sold hot apple cider in the winter; another had one theater set up as a lounge and you could take drinks and small plate snacks there from their cafe. Those were nice options.

As to the OP question, I wouldn't take candy or a soda in, but if I'd just opened a bottled water in the car, I can see taking it with me instead of leaving it to get hot and yukky. I go to the movies so seldom that I do like movie popcorn as a treat, even at the horrific prices. If I've missed a meal or something, I might bring in a cheese stick or something low-carb with some protein it.

I wouldn't be doing it to cheap out of buying their stuff, but if I felt like I needed to have an alternative that wasn't available, I'd do it and not fret about it.

Similar question: If you're at a restaurant and the water tastes "off" (not contaminated, just that icky, papery taste restaurant water sometimes has) are there any thoughts on using those Mio-type water flavorings? I usually have a glass of wine or beer when I go out, but I hate it when the water tastes icky, since I'm going to be drinking a fair amount of that, too. It's not like that's a substitute for buying another drink; it would be making something they're already offering more palatable to enhance my enjoyment of the meal.
