Buttered popcorn and a soda. That's the best!

If I have to add something to the perfection that is buttered popcorn and pepsi, it's Reese's Pieces.

So far I've amassed Junior Mints (thanks for the reminder @lumpthar!), Dots, m&m's, granola bars, apple slices, grapes, nutella snack pack, and PBJ sandwich. Add to that a GINORMOUS popcorn and coke and I think I'm good. I'll be sharing with my friends...but 12+ hrs in a theater is a long time. I just remembered this theater has mini corn dogs...so I may wind up with some of those too :)

Oh yeah, plus my flask of adult type beverages...because sparkly vampires are so much better with coconut rum.

I like dumping my Raisenettes of M&M's into my Popcorn... Delicious.

Roller food (hot dogs) or nachos are a must.
I have seen them for years at the movies and wondered why.

My go-to candy at the movies is Junior Mints.

I get popcorn with extra butter (butter halfway, then on top, please) and sour patch kids. I prefer to bring a seltzer from home, or I'll get water. I'd pack sandwiches, cheese slices, beef jerky, and a few clementines if I was doing the marathon.
Have fun! My bf and I are taking my 14yo to the 10pm show, which makes us the best parental people ever. :)

@mkdr: I saw them at Target during Halloween season, and they went on sale post-holiday. The only knock I have against them is that each little bag holds literally 2-3 1/2 pretzels. Talk about portion control!

For a single movie, my favorite snacks are buttered popcorn and Raisinets. I've never done a movie marathon in a theatre but if I ever did, I'd probably be searching for one of those adult-only theatres where you have to be 21 to get in and waiters bring drinks and food right to your seat. I saw a movie in one of those at the Mall of America and it was a really nice experience.

For a 12 hour marathon I might consider bringing an orange or two. They travel well and from my last movie marathon experience with the Batman movies the air freshening side effects would have been most welcome. When the theatres aren't given time to air out between showings things can get stuffy.

I was just at the movies on Monday and Tuesday to see Flight and Argo. The Studio Movie Grill (Dallas area) has discounted tickets available sometimes, plus pretty good food. This time I had pizza on Monday (lunch time) and a fruit cup on Tuesday (early afternoon).

I love movie theater popcorn with extra butter, especially at the theater that gives free shake-on cheese topping. If I'm not in the mood for popcorn I bring in wasabi peas and colossal cashews.

@chronosquall14: WHOA! I had no idea those existed - and now I want some so bad. Don't have time to make them myself for this trip, and they don't appear to be available anywhere around here, but I will definitely be trying them sometime soon. I may actually add them to my Christmas candy collection that I make every year. Thanks for the suggestion.

The last time we did a marathon I supplemented the theater hot dogs and popcorn with hardboiled eggs, clementines, bananas, bell pepper strips, and cheese sandwiches. I also bought a dozen krispy kremes. We didn't smuggle them in, I left them in the trunk of my car (the eggs, sandwiches, bell peppers and some waters in a cooler) and we went out during the breaks between movies and ate them, got some fresh air and stretched our legs at the same time. We were a large group so we took turns holding our row of seats and watching people's stuff (being the pantry I didn't have to take watch). The theater that hosts the marathons here has a cafe that sells salads, sandwiches, pizzas, etc. But they are pretty pricey and still tend toward overwrought, over salted commercial food. I just found out they are doing a LOTR marathon the one weekend I will be out of town this holiday season. :(

@phoenixgirrl: We got to Deathly Hallows Pt. 2 way to early and my wife went out and got us some Char-Grill burgers and snuck them in. Best Date Ever.

It's gotta be poopcorn. Yes, poopcorn.

@chronosquall14: My wife bought some of those *before * they were on sale(of course) and you are right about the portions. I can eat a pack and 5 minutes later wonder if I ate them or laid them down somewhere.

@moondrake: That is an awesome idea! Next time (not sure if I will do LOTR) I will do that. We have almost an hour before the last movie and we could have gone out to a place next door for food, but we had enough here. A reason to take a walk outside would be good though. For anyone else doing a marathon and wants popcorn/soda - be sure to get the large if your theater does free refills like Regal does - totally worth it! We just refilled before the last movie :)
