Fuck off cinema.
Is there a food with a worse £/niceness ratio?
I used to make them at Cineworld. By make them I mean open a packet of the shittest nachos and put them in the plastic tub things, and then get shouted at for filling them too much.
Even the hot dogs weren't as bad.
Call them warm crisps with cheese vom dip
ate most of them
Would love to know the meat content in those Cineworld hot dogs, they had these fluorescent pink crystals inside which must have been some preservative or flavour additive, still used to eat them mind.
But yeah the nachos are/were shite
I chose cheese and jalepenos as my "free" sauces.
What is that cheese sauce?
I haven't had cinema food since my parents paid for it.
Nice origin story.
Also, what age can you realistically take a boy child to the cinema, please?
If so, now. don't worry about him yelling or crying- if it's a kids film, peple have to expect that there will be a cacophany of that shit. Nothing too scary for the wee guy though, you terrible terrible parent.
Much prefers books. He is going to be an intellectual colossus like his old man.
Take him to waterstones kids section instead to a kiddy reading <3
Go to the cinema!
but I do love babies <3
Pretty much anytime after my deal closes on 27 June.
just don't, you'll ruin it for everyone else. keep to one of those parents + babies screenings until he's about 21
get this: I love cinema nachos and hotdogs SO MUCH that sometimes I run into the cinema to buy them and run out again EVEN THOUGH I AM NOT GOING TO SEE A FILM.
I say sometimes, I have done this maybe twice, three times over my lifetime, but that's hopefully often enough to earn me some proper grubber status.
fuck it, i'm going to do it tonight, I LOVE PLASTIC ORANGE CHEESE. It makes me extremely hyper and wriggly.
like a hungry bear thinking about them. VENDING MACHINE TIME GUYS.
A beverage? Maybe. But eating: no.
I'm there for the ART.
stuff there face with shit whilst watching a movie
Now go and act all superior in someone else's thread please.
Were it not for the food, I'd always just wait and watch stuff at home where you can eat what you want and pause for loo/ wine pouring/ shagging/ fag breaks.
takes you out of the zone
needing a massive wee takes you out of the zone.
feel the pressure build, absorb the ache, transcend
the salted popcorn is well nice
I just sneak in a bottle of coke and a few beers most of the timeIt is especially useful to have girls with large handbags around me for this but tbh I think I've just walked into an Odeon rockin' a co-op plastic bag.
Also the cinema in my home town, which incidentally is so up to the minute I watched One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest in there last week, still has usherettes. Something very nice about a cornetto you've bought without getting up.
some of the posh girls in the office arranged an office trip to see skyfall at marble arch. None of these girls seem to eat EVER, so for the "dinner" we had arranged before the screening, we went to some horrific cocktail bar and had about 7 lethal cocktails, then we left and i'm thnking YAAAY FOOD AT LAST but no, we went via a supermarket where the receptionist ran in swith the boss's cvredit card to get 'nibbles' which turned out to be 4 mini bottles of champagne per head (easier to smuggle than a 750ml bottle). I was considering getting cinema food at the cinema but decided I was ultimately too embarrassed to eat in front of these glossy emaciated goddesses, so I just went along with the whole plan. Ended up missing the bit at the end that's filmed in scotland because I had to run off and be sick in the cinema loos. I then fell down the stairs afterwards at marble arch tube station and cracked my head. This is why i don't go and watch films at the fucking cinema. dangerous.
I like making myself at home in a cinema though, I'd probably grab a pizza or something from the nearest kebab shop if I was hungry Maximum smuggling ninja powers needed but definitely worth it
every seat had a little table in front to put your pizza on :D
i book the same single seat each week to ensure optimum viewing conditions, walk along after supper with a small bottle of water & a notebook, take my place and enjoy the film with the odd sip of water.
As the credits role i pull out my notebook and jot down a few impressions of the film before returning home to update my spreadsheet
GUESS HOW MUCH?!
I can't actually remember but I remember being wtf?! it was well over a quid I'm sure
If you do a guessy game thing it's good manners to at least pretend to know the answer.
but i really really like
NOM NOM NOM
at the cinema.
Big box of warm salty popcorn with malteses mixed in for a tasty sweet treat every now and then. Yum.
Mixing Maltesers in with salty popcorn? You disgust me.
Now THERE'S a real treat mixed in with your popcorn.
that seems to have a 'restaurant' that'll serve you full meals in the cinema
did this, it was great. It was a very small 'cinema' though
