Think about it, you purchased your movie tickets to see the hottest flick of the year, meticulously selected the perfect seat (with the best view of the screen and isn’t too far from the aisle for trips to the concessions and bathrooms but not too close to the aisle so that you aren’t constantly being walked in front of) and now you can sip on a beer or wine while you enjoy the film.
