Angie

Kirk--

Oh, great question. I have snuck in everything from the popcorn (I know they sell it there, but mine's not made from genetically modified corn and it has real butter) to burritos, sushi, salad, and soup (which I definitely don't recommend in a dark theatre!).

That Double-Double looks good. And I love the beer bottles up the sleeves. It's easier for us women--we just bring a really big purse.

Jo

I used to have special "movie purse". Now, with the kids and the high cost, I have no shame and bring it in a grocery bag! No one has tried to stop me yet! ::quirks an eyebrow::

As a young person, we would go to the drive in and sneak friend in the trunk... =o)

Kirk

Hi Angie - I agree it's much easier for women. But burrito's and soup? How the heck do you eat soup in a movie theatre? Can you imagine coming out with all those stains on your clothes?

Hi Jo - We're not as brave as you! My friend had a 1976 Imperial - we used to call it the "aircraft carrier", could fit 3-4 of us little Asian guys in the trunk for the drive-in movie! We got busted at Waialae Drive-In once - too much food (3 pizza's, bucket of KFC, and some bento's) in the back seat for 3 guys....

Jo

uhhh... guess you were too smart to put it in the trunk huh??? ::laughing:: We had a 60s era (maybe late 50s) Chevy Impala. Wanna hear stories about Puking Pink Ducks?? (As my pastor says, "I wasn't always saved!")

Kirk

Hi Jo - No room in the trunk - too many guys....plus they would've eaten it all!

Rachel

LOL ! Love the story kirk! I alwyas like how your posts have a theme to them. Sneaking food in is always wayyy more fun than pop corn.I managed to sneak in a large 3 scoop sundae once. Another time, I managed to sneak into a normal cinema, my dog magic! ( not that I was going to eat him.) But ever notice how when at home with friends, watching a movie, one will try to re-create the movie experience by microwaving pop corn ?? *ponders*

AAAAhh Haw Flakes! So many memories of my childhood. Being one of the few Asian kids at my elementary school, I actually dealt Haw Flakes to my Caucasian friends...yes, I was a Haw Dealer.

That's sooo good Kirk LOL
hmmm we used to take anything we could! but you would get kicked out if you had hot food, so bottles of drink, chips, jaffas (my movie fav) etc... The Cinema in randwick is actually reasonable priced if you buy a combo meal with your ticket $5 for a popcorn, drink and a choc top! perfect :) plus they are independtly owned ;)

Jo

What are Haw Flakes? I'm tempted to buy them just because of the packaging but I figure with my luck the contents of these lovely little packets would be disks of dried talapia or something equally questionable...

Jo

Never mind, just Googled it. Hawthorne fruit leathers... NOW I can try some!

Kirk

Hi Rachel - An ice cream sundae?? That's amazing! So did you dress Magic up like a little old lady or something? Sounds almost like something someone would do on a dare!

Hi Elmo - You should make your own movie - "I was a Teenage Haw Pusher!"

Hi Clare - Five bucks is cheap - popcorn and such is great, but we get "tired" of it after a while.

Hi Jo - Enjoy! :o)

Dylan

that's hilarious kirk. i just mentioned cuttlefish jerky and haw flakes. The essentials for any chinese movie-goer.

Kirk

Hi Dylan - Yes, I saw that in your post. I kinda lay off on the cuttlefish though....the smell freaks people out. I was wondering; you must be able to make cup a' noodles at the movies, right?

Beth

Mmmm, yum - In N Out! I bring my own microwave popcorn into the theater and bottled water. A full drive-thru meal is something I never considered, but I love the idea!

Kirk

Hi Beth - I'm quite amazed at what some people have brought into the theatre - soup, ice cream sundae, burrito's - just simply amazing!

I think we don't go often enough to get tired of it.... *sigh*

Kirk

Hi Clare - It mostly happens when we attend multi-day film festivals like this one!

Rachel

Kirk,

hehe magic weighs about 7.5 kgs so hes not a very big dog. I put him in a tote bag and brought him in on my shoulder. He is very good and doesn't make a sound even though there are 'scary noises' in the movie. I have snuck him into uni lectures as well as to church (!) At uni one time he sneezed really loudly and my tutor looked up and said "bless you" and my whole class roared with laughter as they knew it was my dog !!

Kirk

Hi Rachel - Magic sounds so well behaved! My Sammy would be all over everything. And he behaved well at Church too!
