A person on the phone confessed that the last film she saw was Titanic asked "why don't theatres sell popato chips?" It never occurred to me was one good reason. Did chips used to have a place in theatres?

Theatres in England sell Potato Crisps.

As a purveyor of "salty snacks" at a 1,000% markup, I'm not interested in selling a competing product at a 100% markup.

Call me a capitalist!

No, that can't be it, many place sell "quote-unquote NACHOS
"

Switching gears, was the reason she hasn't been in so long because she can't get chips?

Tell her chips are bad for her, she ought to try a chocolate bar or buttery popcorn.

How about the crumbs all over the place as the little rug rats stuff their teeny tiny faces with the things?

We sell a small can of Pringles for $1.00 to meet the needs of some customers. We walk over to the dollar store in the same plaza and buy them for .50 cents. They don't seem to cut into our popcorn sales at all. They are simply another alternative. We also sell Cheezits and Oreos or whatever snack mixes we can buy from Sams too. After having completed our annual inventory I am happy to observe that our cost of goods sold dropped 2% this year which makes me happy. More profit!

Just as a side note, Galaxy theatres up here in canada sell Pringles I believe. The other bags are too noisy I think.

Myself I agree with Large...Not at our theatre.

I would think the noise of the bags and the crunch of the chips would be a distraction.

Anyone sell pretzel sticks?

I sold chips years ago but found that it was taking away from my popcorn sales. I wound up eliminating the chips and added flavored popcorn (cheese, chocolate etc.) at a premium price. Cotten candy also worked well for me and very profitible.
