When going to the movie theatre, what do you get from the concession stand?

But when I go to the movies, I usually buy some candy and a soda from the closest gas station and put it in my purse. *shhh, don't tell!* A lot of people do that, anyways. And I buy a small popcorn there.

I saw one trick that I just have to remember the last time we were at a movie. Two ladies bought one of the huge-monster tubs that they allow you to get free refills on (I'm sure they figure they'll almost never have to refill those things!). They had plastic bags with them, dumped the tub into one bag, then went back for their free refill! No bumping hands in the middle of the movie and they could each put as much butter-grease on as they wanted! Genius!
