Jam With Fossil Youth, Celebrate National Cotton Candy Day With Cotton Candy Cocktails And Sing Along With James Taylor.

However many years you have been watching movies at the theater, you’ve had probably a number of tricks up your sleeve to bring your own food to avoid paying $8 for a small popcorn cup.

But all the purse stuffing and literally stuffing snacks up your sleeves aside, movie theaters might not actually matter — if you live in the United Kingdom, that is. A few U.K. movie theater chains apaprently don’t have strict food policies and most of them said that they don’t really care if you bring in your own food into the cinema as long as it’s not hot.

Now this might not be the same policy for U.S. cinemas, as this diabetic man learned a few years ago when he had the cops called on him for brining in strawberries to keep his insulin levels safe during a showing of Divergent.

Now, if you’re not feeling up for that kind of risk taking, feel free to peruse our list of Monday happenings for an alternative to the movies. Either way, you can still keep some Sour Patch Kids in your bag. — Pauline Esguerra
