It’s not unusual to hear about someone sneaking their own food or drinks into the movie theatre. After all, the concession stand options are often limited and ridiculously overpriced ($8 for popcorn?!) But one woman got extra creative with her movie snack, and her hilarious hack has gone viral.
In a photo posted to Twitter, a woman is seen holding two ziplock bags full of spaghetti—with meatballs, sauce and all—which she allegedly snuck with her into the theatre.
On @slashfilmcast, we talked about a listener’s gf who brought spaghetti to the theater. Lots of people asked to see photo proof. Here it is pic.twitter.com/NuEUxN4rAo

For anyone thinking this might be a hoax, one Twitter user posted a photo of what appears to be a text conversation between him and the woman about the situation.
I know both parties involved, and can confirm the validity of this story. pic.twitter.com/nt7d5Jf2xU

Some people were not impressed and found the entire thing to be disgusting and rude.
Look how proud she is of this craven act. This is too much. Even in times like these we must draw lines. Movie spaghetti is beyond the pale.

Others thought it was genius and took the opportunity to share what foods they’ve snuck into the movies.
I’m glad someone else shares my love for not only spaghetti but ballin on a budget as well

I’ve been bringing Wendy’s to the movies for ages. 😂My spicy chicken sandwich fell out at the ticket booth one time. Made the loudest thud

Now the serious question is, what will she think to sneak in, next?
