Beer, and lots of it. When I saw Poltergeist with a group of friends we snuck in enough beer for us to have two or three beers throughout the movie.

A large Italian sub, in the sleeve of my winter coat. And beer. Four per sleeve, per person.

And once a small bag of moths that I released into the projector beam. They look huge on the screen and there's no getting rid of them.

I am picturing you dutifully collecting moths the night before. You are an evil bastard, Paul.

I have made fireworks on the screen by throwing handfuls of popcorn into the beam.

I've actually never snuck anything of note into a theater. I'm there for the popcorn, usually. But I did have Taco Bell in one. For a brief time, the Centennial Lakes theater in Edina, MN sold Taco Bell at their concession stand. It was very weird watching a movie while eating soft-shell tacos.

Not me, I'm too much a Girl Scout. But I read a very funny account by Kevin Murphy (from Mystery Science Theater 3000 - he was Tom Servo, among others) about how he had his family snuck in an entire Thanksgiving dinner.

Damn, I can't top Kevin Murphy (All Hail MST3K!! *sigh* Oh how I miss that show...) but my Dad once snuck in a 6-pack and an entire bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken--complete with tubs of mashed potatoes, cole slaw, and biscuits!

Of course if you aren't counting food, he used to have a penchant for sneaking ME in to movies that were wholly inappropriate for kids my age--like the first Alien movie, for instance!

A tape recorder. Star Wars, 1977.

Gawd, I'm a geek...

This has some potential. The new Harkins 16 has opened up in Bricktown, east of downtown, just south of the fountain.

Just east of the fountain are a Sonic, a barbecue joint, and a Vietnamese noodle house.

Back in college, I snuck a six-pack of Shiner Bock long necks into Star Trek IV (the whale movie). Consumed it during the movie, too. We didn't get busted, even though we were a bit obnoxious and a few empties rolled down under the seats to the front of the theater. I was even skinnier back then, and didn't have much space in my clothes (I used both pant legs and tucked others into my waist band with a sweatshirt covering them).

The most interesting debris we have found cleaning up the theater was an empty large Pizza Hut pizza box, although I did once find chicken bones near the screen....
