Can't say I'm not shocked by this but it's a perfect interpretation of how our movie theaters are not helping the obesity epidemic in our country. I recently went to the movies with my daughter and got popcorn and a large Coke. I'm not sure the ounces on that Coke, but I joked that it comes with a Diabetes test kit as it was HUGE! Great article and eye opening.

As if we don't pay enough enormous, outragious money to the actors who star in the movies we flock to see! It's all so insane....our appetites are out of control for so many "things".....

I bring my own hidden popcorn to the theaters....once a smart aleck ticket taker wanted to "search my pocketbook and frisk me"...when I threatened to sue, they let me in, popcorn, soda and all. It's one thing to pay outrageous prices for the tickets alone, but to gouge people for the food is just so unfair! If they would offer healthy snacks at reasonable prices, that would be a win-win for the theater and patrons. And I believe they would make up the profits on volume.
