However, David Chen of the Slashfilmcast posted this photo of someone who decided to buck conventions. Not only did she bring in her own food to a movie, but the food was an odd choice. She brought spaghetti.
The photo drew a lot of attention from Twitter users who were surprised that someone actually brought spaghetti to the movies. Why should we be forced to simply follow the rules of what we are or are not supposed to eat while in the theater?
Some people were reluctantly on board with her idea of eating spaghetti at the movie. If spaghetti becomes acceptable, maybe other foods will become acceptable too. The entire movie theater experience could become even better.
On many occasions, the best time to see a movie is also the best time to eat dinner. Why force yourself to starve just so you can sit in a theater for two hours? You might as well make the most of your time and eat and watch all at once.
Sure, some foods present a bit of a problem when eating them at the theater. For instance, how would you eat a cheesecake? Do yo take out a plate and fork during the movie, or just grab a handful of cheesecake and shove it in your mouth?
A couple of other people pointed out that this isn't the first time someone has eaten spaghetti at a movie. It was also done by Charlie on It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. However, he might not be the best person to site as a positive example.
In case their was any doubt about the photo's accuracy, another Twitter said he knew the woman in question. And he could prove that the spaghetti incident really happened by sharing these text messages. However, the person she was texting did not seem to approve.
In the photo, there's no indication that she brought any forks with her. But we have to assume she had them on her person somewhere. And as long as she did, she should be saluted for broadening the horizons of what's acceptable food at the movies.
