      My first reaction was, use the gift certificate to the last penny and not a cent more, so they don't get to keep the money.

      Then I remembered that it really doesn't cost them any more to run the movie with you sitting in the seat than with you back home, so using the certificate in a sense doesn't actually take anything out of their pockets. It just puts you in their chair.

      So I guess I'd have to take the same line you did. It annoys me that they have that cash in their coffers, but I don't see any way to really change that.

      To paraphrase my favorite Martian, sometimes logic makes me very, very angry.

          But popcorn's cheap. Max out on the candy! Ooooo -- and then give it to somebody's kids, so they don't spend their money to buy more!
