Avengers Adventure



Did I tell you that I took 10 boys to see The Avengers on Saturday night? This first photo shows the first in a line of cup holders with Cherry and Rainbow Icees and Large Popcorns in arms, seven Icees to be exact, 2 waters, one small root beer and four large popcorns to be shared and it totaled -- gasp --

$83.80.


And that didn't count the tickets which were LESS.

Good thing I couldn't hear myself think over the crashing and fighting and mayhem and end of the world happenings in the movie.

  1. they ALWAYS get you at the concession stand!!! And bottled water is one of the most expensive drinks you can buy there. But...looks like the boys were having a great time, and sometimes you've just gotta pull out all the stops.

  2. Well. What are you going to do? In a few more years he'll want a car for his birthday and then you'll look back on The Avengers with great nostalgia.
    Maybe.

  3. Steve and I went to see it on Sat too. I had a $25 gift card that was given to me after a talk about raising Maggie and interacting with the medical world. Halfway through that movie I turned to Steve and told him I pour out my emotions and I'm given this gift card as a momento and I squandered it. Steve owed me $25. (We saw it in 3D so our tickets were actually $31 - but I was willing to accept the price of the gift card). Somehow I don't think I was the target audience for that movie.

  4. Some of our theaters do offer a party package which would come to about the same as that but all you can eat popcorn and soda and a piece of candy. Not such a great idea as the boys will eat, get thirsty, drink, have to go pee, and then get hyper from the sugar. Yeah, I found out .

  9. And that's why my mom would never buy food at the movies when I was little!

    (It was kind of a great movie, though, wasn't it -- despite all the mayhem? I liked it much more than I thought I would.)

  10. Please tell me you stayed all the way after the credits. For reasons unknown, that final scene made me laugh and laugh and laugh due to its sheer... I dunno... existence, I guess. (And 10 boys????? Yikes.)

  11. The scary thing is if you trace everything back to the source, it amounts to half a bushel of corn and a heap of processing. The mark-up has got to be staggering. A jillion percent.

    Sorry, i know that doesn't help any.
