With the price of a ticket, snack and a drink, no matter which film you end up choosing, a trip to the cinema can sometimes end up costing a pretty penny.
It’s hard to watch a movie without a box of popcorn, but are you allowed to take your own or do you have to fork out and pay for it there?
We’ve checked out cinemas in and around Burton and South Derbyshire to see what they say about their food policies.
Cineworld, which has a site in Middleway Retail Park, is the second largest cinema operator in Europe, with 2,049 screens across 221 sites.
Cineworld was the only cinema chain in the UK to operate a ‘strict no food and drink policy’ on items that had been bought elsewhere.
However, in November 2012, the food policy was changed and now simply states that “neither alcohol nor hot food may be brought onto the premises".
Odeon Cinema, Swadlincote:
The first Odeon cinema was operated by Oscar Deutsch in 1928 in Brierley, Staffordshire, although it was initially called “Picture House”.
Staff at the current cinema, in Coppice Side, state that you are allowed to bring food and drink into the cinema screens, as long as you do not disturb other people around you when you're eating it.
Cinebowl, in Town Meadows Way, offers a great family fun day out, with an ice rink, cinema and an eight-lane tenpin bowling alley with special glow lighting.
The entertainment centre said that customers are not allowed to bring their own food in as it is company policy.
However, film-lovers who fancy a snack can purchase food on the site.
A spokesman for Cinebowl Uttoxeter said: "Customers aren’t allowed to take food in as its company policy, however they can purchase food on site such as a pizza from Papa John’s."
