There's an excellent little independent cinema in my town. Ticket prices are 
reasonable, food and drink offerings are high but not unreasonable and (drum 
roll)...it's licenced. A beer or glass of wine with your movie is a great way 
of dulling the pain. And so damn civilised. They have decent discounts for 
seniors and a film Club with special screenings and events. In the summer, they 
have a outdoor cinema at the back with deck chairs and a drive-in style screen 
where you're welcome to bring your own picnic hamper - they just expect you buy 
drinks at the bar at the back, but don't get difficult if you don't.
Strangely this decadent and deviant behaviour on the part of the clearly 
deranged owner and management has been ridiculously successful.  It's not some 
rural backwater movie hose with one room and films showing up six months behind 
the DVD release - it's a mini-multiplex with 7 rooms, new releases, 3D, 
surround sound and a nice line in European films, thanks to the art house 
connection. The only downside is that you might be exposed to the owner's 
Groucho Marx impression if he's in the mood and not at one of his boutique 
'art' cinema's closer to the city. 
Popcorn? A useful packaging material but not something you actually want to 
eat, is it?
