Poll appalls

Re: The Poll, Feb.2-8

People go to the movie theatres to see a movie, not to drink booze. The movies are quite expensive nowadays, and to even consider serving a behaviour-changing drink would certainly change the quiet atmosphere we all appreciate.

Crinkly candy wrappings are bad enough to make people move to another seat, if there is one, never mind the effects alcohol has on loud (usually juvenile) behaviour.

The smell, the refills, the behaviour — who needs it? Not to forget that the majority drive a car to the movies, or feed drinks to under-age teens in the dark. Your poll should never have been initiated in the first place; it is total absurdity to even present it.
