Re: Regal Cinema charges a dollar extra for salt

interesting.....our local regal cinemas does not charge extra for salt.....at least as of the last time i was there.

 

if i were her i would contact someone (either via social media or email or phone) to ask just why she was charged extra for salt or if this is now a standard policy.

Forget about just not buying anything from the concession stand, that would be the last time I ever went there to see a movie.

Maybe it's their way of coaxing people to eat healthier.  I can see a charge for the butter, but I'd sqwack about a charge for the salt.  Loudly.

Re: Regal Cinema charges a dollar extra for salt

You can buy a whole 26 oz. box of salt for $1 or less.  That is just crazy.  Heck, I'd bring my own salt packets.

 

Come to think of it, i don't buy any refreshments when I go to the movies, which isn't often.  I watch TV and movies at home and don't eat while watching.  It's a bad habit to get into.

 

Movie theaters make more money selling refreshments than they do on movie tickets.

Normal salt is no charge, flavored salts like white cheddar or kettle corn have a charge.

That's excessive.  Our movie theatres don't charge extra for salt.

I’d be upset spending close to $10 for a bad movie

than spending an add’l $1 for tasty concessions.

Re: Regal Cinema charges a dollar extra for salt

I went to the movies on Sunday. I bought a special container of popcorn. It was $11.99. And I thought they overloaded the popcorn with salt. My guess because they wanted to make sure that you spent the extra money for a soda.

 

But I went to AMC.
