@Hate - Ah, the old 'burrito in the boot' trick! I was laughing about that as I brushed my teeth this morning. Dunno what part of the world you're in, but 'back in the day' (late 70s) Jack in the Box was 24/7 and had some truly awesome deep-fried burritos; we used to go about 2am on study breaks and get some! They still have the best (deep-fried) tacos AND on their value menu 2/99¢, but sadly the burritos have been gone for decades.

@Hate, that is the best thing I have heard in awhile. You're lucky you are male or some of us might REALLY like that comment. LOL

@ Angus...Back in the day I always stopped by Taco Bell to buy some burritos to stick down in my boots before entering the movie. I'm sure everyone wondered where all that onion smell was coming from.

@AR - I never liked 'em, and they're sort of a dying breed, but they can still be found here and there. Still had one in the small town in the south where I lived, and I think there's *one* in like a 50-mile radius here in the big big city too.

Definitely the sort of place I will want to visit while visiting the US. @Bib - lol. The feet... are in this lovely Lilly.xd

That reminds me. I haven't been to a drive-in since the early 80's. That would be really fun to do again.

C'mon, guys, quit. 54, I think you made your point. Too much is never enough, huh?
To paraphrase the late Clara Peller from the classic 80s Wendy's advert: "WHERE'S THE FEET???"

@AR - There's some chain that has a sit down restaurant that shows the movie in front. There was one of 'em in Dallas, and a few other pockets in the U.S. but I forget the name right now.

There are some theaters near Boston that have full on restaurants and fast food joints in them. You get your grub on while watching the movies.

Oh and perhaps the only cool thing about where I come from is the fact that it's really ok to take snacks into the theatres, without having to hide them. Once I even ate a pizza there that I bought somewhere else, and I always buy my Coca-Cola at the supermarket.

@BackInBlack - LOL at the "Please, people, if you brought any alcohol or illegal drugs here with you tonight, leave them in my car!". Even though I don't really like 3D I feel really bad for not having watched Gravity in 3D, with all sole shots from Sandra Bullock. XD

That's what's so great about going during the winter time. Got my big fluffy down coat on and they don't notice the liter of soda or the pint of SoCo in my pockets. I don't mind paying for some popcorn as long as I'm getting drunk while I enjoy it.

I actually usually *do* smuggle in snacks, water, alcoholic drinks, even a full Starbucks hot beverage once! But there's nothing like movie theater popcorn. At the same price per ounce as silver bars!
One recent MC before a 'special event' movie I attended gets best line going over theater rules: "Please, people, if you brought any alcohol or illegal drugs here with you tonight, leave them in my car!"
Yep on the LOTR box sets... it's overwhelming to think about, but I want to see all that sometime.
I like 3D ok, but usually as happy with 2D. Saw Thor in 3D, Gravity in 2D.
1. That's a great deal, and I prefer 2D anyways. Smuggle in your snacks!
2. Yea, 10-12 hours, I only watch extended cuts though, which add another 50 minutes per film. Then I watch all of the behind the scenes/making of content, so it's like a week long event for me lol. Obsession...

@WoG- Thanks! Just checked the 'cheap theater' and it's still there in 2D but gone in 3D. May have to run down there on Bargain Tuesday and catch it for $1.75 (US). What a deal! Until I buy $8 popcorn, that is.
Agree there's nothing like original Trilogy - got Special Edition Box Set DVD's and been meaning to rewatch them, when I've got a spare... what... 10-12 hours?
DoS releases on dvd April 8th, so yea, it might be getting a little late for a theater viewing. If you liked UEJ, then DoS won't disappoint. In the end, I'd still give the nod to LoTR, but the Hobbit is still great.

@WoG- [facepalm] HOW could I have forgotten Liv Tyler in that movie? I like her way, way better than Cate. I've not seen 'Smaug' yet but did see E. Lilly on the talks doing the promo tour for it. Meant to see it on big screen & maybe 3D but probably too late now. One theater runs 'em a couple months 'late' and for only $3 or $5 if 3D. That'd be sweet. Hope it's as good as the rest of LOTR.
Yea, Cate Blanchett does a good job as Galadriel. Liv Tyler also made for a good Arwen. Both had better feet than anticipated as well. Although, I think Evangeline edges them out for #1. I've actually never watched a single episode of Lost, so I had no idea she existed until The Desolation of Smaug.

@WoG - Didja like Cate Blanchett as Galadriel in LOTR?
Really liked Evangeline in "Lost" and loved the show... until the sucky ending.
