Today was the umpteenth time a movie was impacted by the noisy crinkling of popcorn bags.I can't be the only person who has noticed this. Of course, it always happens in the most intense scene where the dialogue is crucial to the plot. I don't blame theater goers. After all, popcorn is traditional movie fare. I blame theater and concession owners.
I get that the money to be made is from the food and drink sold. The solution is easy: go retro and provide popcorn boxes of various sizes just like in the old days. Boxes don't make crinkling noises. Now, wasn't that easy?
The next time you go to the movie, forego the "bag" and ask for a box even if you are getting the tiny order of popcorn. If you get a funny look, just be pleasant, smile and offer them a quarter for the box.
To be considerate of other movie goers in the shared space, all we have to do is "think inside the box" ...of popcorn.
