By the way, the last time I paid $13.00 for a bucket of popcorn at the movies was the last time I will pay $13.00 for a bucket of popcorn. I made the mistake of going to a 7 PM movie without having had supper, and then after we had found our seats asking my date if she wanted popcorn–and then I couldn’t come back empty handed. I think we need a concession czar in Manhattan to dictate reasonable priced concessions. Scott Walker may be needing a job soon; he would be a good candidate for that job.
On the other hand, there are several former dictators looking for work. Qaddafi’s Concessions–does that have a ring to it. The Moamar special–by a bucket of popcorn, a large Coke, and a box of chocolate-covered cherries and get Mo’ Amour.
Or instead of waiting for a popcorn prince to emerge I can exercise my free market rights and smuggle peanuts and Pepsi in under my jacket or in my date’s purse. Or I can come back on Tuesday nights when popcorn is cheap.
