Yeah, down here in Nawlins' they still serve alcoholic beverages at the movies. The J&C slushie is not too strong with the Jack though. Obviously they don't want folks getting drunk at the movies. But if you drink it fast enough, you can get a buzz, as well as a headache.

Hell, in honor of the movie, they named two more daquiris after famous Star Trek drinks: Romulan Ale and Klingon Bloodwine. (Although the bloodwine is cold...not warm the way real Klingons would prefer it.)

Believe me, I was stunned at the cheap ticket prices too.

To paraphrase Scotty: "Ah love this place! It's exciting!"

You know, Paramount should do an ad with you in it, saying exactly that.

LMAO, you would not believe that amount of people that actually say that to us when they are ordering their concessions. lol, Like we need that bit of info...

What we find even funnier is when ONE person orders a Tub of popcorn with layers of butter, a Nacho, candy, and... a LARGE DIET COKE.
Sorry, but that diet coke does not offset the rest of your order.

Oh, and our Ticket Prices are $9.00 Evening, and $7.00 matinee. IMAX is Higher, $12.50 Sun-Thu Evenings, $13.50 on Fri and Sat Evenings. $10.50 Sun-Thu Mattinee, and $11.50 Fri and Sat Matinee.

We find empty bottles all the time.

I guess some movies require a good buzz to enjoy.

$10.00 per ticket for my wife and I (as full sized kids).
$4.75 for a medium popcorn for me which I almost finished.
They were selling some new HUGE popcorn for $6.00 that was around 2 feet tall.

'Worth EVERY second: a HUGE screen in Silicon Valley, San Jose
Monday night after dinner, only about 20% capacity in a giant dome theater with BOOMING sound. We were so lucky.

All of you should just say "I'm so glad I don't live in southern California" and then stop posting about the very inexpensive trips you've made to the theater.

On opening Friday night I paid $11.50 per ticket NOT IMAX... the soda was $5.75, the small popcorn was $6.00 and the candy was $5.00.

The next day I went to a Saturday matinee. The tickets were $9 per person. The soda was $5, the small popcorn was $5 and the candy was $4.

Quick Tip: Do what every other person does. Stop by Walgreens, CVS, or any Dollar Store and buy the same candy for just $1.00.

I know I work at theatre, and concessions are how we make money, since the box office revenue goes to the film companies, but you have to save where ever you can.
