TikTok users share that they’ve been doing this for years and understand Austin’s actions.

If you’re a frequent movie theater attendee, you likely know that Austin’s video is quite the norm. Simply put, some folks don’t have the time to spend a dinner bill on snacks at the theater. So, people don't have any qualms about taking food into the theaters.

“I put my food in a blanket tbh just neatly fold it every time you go in and boom they don’t care,” one user shared.

“Me and my friend snuck a whole key lime pie into a movie once, plates and everything,” another person said.

“I still sneak in theater boxes of candy on the off chance I go, their prices are ridiculous,” another user chimed in.

Interestingly, theaters are known to have strict rules when it comes to bringing in outside food. However, many people in the comment section expressed that some theaters have relaxed their rules. On the flip side, one person shared that you can’t be told not to bring food into a theater without a sign being present.
