    It's so funny that expensive popcorn is a thing we share in our cultures.

      it's so weird seeing you guys talking about how expensive it is, your expensive would be so cheap where I live (Brazil); our ticket costs $ 24 for kids and students, and $ 45 for adults, and the popcorn price is similar to the tickets price, it's so crazy to me that you pay like half of the kids/students ticket for the popcorn and the soda. of course there's a huge difference between our countries, how we are affected by certain things and stuff but this is still crazy to me
      edit: I don't know if you can do this but this is something my mom has done since I was a kid and many people have done these days, our Movie Theater is always located in a shopping mall so before the movie starts we buy snacks (like potato chips, chocolate bar, soda...) in a store in the shopping mall, some people also buy burgers and fries...; these things aren't cheap as well but surely a lot more cheap than the Movie theater popcorn haha, and it's totally ok to enter the movie theater with food bought out of it, so we do it a lot, but of course, some people still buy what the movie theater offers (and sorry for repeating some words so many times, my vocabulary is not that great)

      Yeah, a lot of countries outside the West are Westernized for obvious reasons. Though the West itself is starting to become more globalized.

      The movie company gets 60% of ticket sales, and the theater still has to pay a rental fee. So the only way they can profit is through concessions. I was a manager of a movie theater for 5 years.

      @carnivalmutt Yes it is a NY thing. I moved out of that state years ago and went to another state. So many places are cleaner, modern and well maintained especially movie theaters. Also the prices are less expensive and the popcorn is bigger.

      The theater looks like what they have in Texas and California actually. In such states they have the trays as well though in Texas there are some theaters that have a whole table in front of the seats. Yes, a whole table.

    Those trays that fit into custom holders on tables and all seats, have been around in Mexico for a while, we've had them for ages in all movie theaters in Mexico, I'm pretty sure since the early 2000s, maybe 2002 or 2003, but it might also have to do with the corporativism of movie theater franchises and chains, which leads to companies competing, more money being used towards theaters (since huge companies own them) uniformity and standards being uphold.
    It seems like in the USA movie theaters are very outdated, more dirty, look older or without any updates and have less uniformity in regards of features they all have, while here in Mexico even old movie theaters are constantly updated, renovated or modifications being added to fit the company manuals.
    Something I noticed the times I've been to the USA is that there are many more small, locally owned movie theaters or movie theater chains while in Mexico, historically, there had been about 3 or 4 established including the two most prominent ones Cinépolis and Cineméx, which are still around and are more of a duopoly nowadays, even not very long ago, like in the mid-2000s there were many more chains like Multicinemas, Cinemas Gemelos, Cinemas Platinum, Cinebox, which were bought out or assimilated by other bigger companies, either that or they disappeared or reduced to almost nothing today.

      Really depends where you live in the US but to say we don't have them here is incorrect. There are plenty of those theaters they are mostly in another state, a bit pricy or you go to old school theaters outside of a city.

  • ahajshqjxbsjdb Oxjandhamcbsjzk

    I've been to a cinema in Japan and everything was great until I was inside. Don't get me wrong. The thing that made it a slightly less good experience (?) was that I was watching the 3 hour long Avengers Endgame and we could NOT go out to pee cuz the doors were all closed. It was all good tho since everything else was rlly nice and there are merch and freebies they give you when you enter, so that redeemed it lol

    Oliver McCombie 3 months ago +344

    The cinema near us did some massive changes and now every seat is a "luxury" one. Probably due to covid since the seats are pretty space apart now but they're all the fancy reclining leather ones (they can fold nearly flat like a bed) and they all have a tray table like thing for drinks and food. It's amazing.

    • shizukagozen777

      @Jared O. I know- i'm sorry if I made it seem like I was talking about the general cinepolis XD.
      didn't make myself clear enough, but I do prefer just the normal cinepolis over the VIP, it also seems more fun to just see people enjoy the movie has well, instead of being completely alone in the vip simply because a lot of people here are unable to afford it much or simply because of the same logic it's not worth the waste.

      @Jared O. imo wouldn't say the cinepolis vip is worth that much to pay the extra money for-
      you may have a more "comfortable experience", but wey I feel like I got enough with the extremely overpriced cojones popcorns and icee or just fuze tea on the non vip, if I want to drink beer in mid of a movie I'm interested on and want to understand it's better I finish watching the movie then drink at home, vip just feels like I'm on an airplane, not a movie theater.

    The theater I work at has trays, typically we only use them for big food orders (you can keep them until your movie is done) but we give em to you if you ask!
    Popcorn is expensive because it's actually the main product we sell! More so than tickets! (We're actually considered an agricultural business cause our main product is seed) You get free refills on certain sizes. So it seems a lot more expensive if you don't get a refill but it's not if you take advantage of it!

    Here in the netherlands we have moving seats which can transform into a sort of “bed” (it moves the legs up and head and backrest down) and it has a small table you can put in front of yourself to put the snacks on.

    Even know it seems those trays are all over the world I still think those trays make more sense in Japan.
    With Popcorn and Chips you can rest it beside you but with Food like Nuggets and Hot Dogs you wouldn't want to rest it beside you or on your lap just in case it falls

    I don’t know about other American movie theaters, but the one I go to has something like those trays too. Only difference is you bring all your snacks to your seat, and the tray is already attached to the cup holder. The seats also recline as well.

    I mean there's also a few theaters on the states where there's dine in theaters. Where you go, order food, and go to your seats. The seats are able to recline, and you have feet rests too. Then you have a table, and once the staff is finished with your food, they come in and place it on your table.

      I guess it depends how you look at it, movies in the states (atleast where I live) have caterers that will take your order before the movie starts aswell as serve you as the movie starts serving gourmet dishes or regular dishes along with popcorn and possibly even pizza. Innovation is just perception

      Lol wut, even McDonalds has plastic serving trays. That kind of thick plastic is extremely durable, it's the same stuff they make those little kid foot pedal cars out of. It's tough stuff. It'll gets scratched up over time, but it's next to impossible to crack or chip.
      People generally don't steal them because they're so big and awkward to sneak out, and theres nothing really cool/interesting/useful about them to justify the effort. It's not like many people have an abundance of cupholders at home, it's basically useless outside of a theater.
      It's the same reason plastic shopping baskets rarely get stolen at stores. People theoretically could if they wanted to, but other than kids looking for a low effort thrill, there's really no reason why anybody would.

      Or they give you the tray and you leave a deposit. When you return the tray, you get your money back.
