Thanks for the link.  As many of you know last year was the first year we "gave away snacks for a suggested donation" With the understanding that the money made goes back into maintenance, repair and upgrades for the theater.  It's been a bit of a learning curve and it's also been interesting to see how people react.  So this is how we work it.  Soda is in cans, self serve out of a cooler, we bag your popcorn, and if you order a pizza we cook it.  BTW pizza is just a frozen pizza so all we have to do is unwrap it and throw it on the barbeque, that was an idea Jake had.  I'm getting off track here.  The popcorn and soda is on table and at the end of the table is a box that you put your donation into.  What's interesting is to watch who puts what into the donation box.  It's interesting to see who over and under donates.

I've slowly figured out where to get the best deals popcorn and soda.  We are thinking of adding some candy to the menu for next year and possibly a popcorn machine either this year or next.  Some of you will cringe but I've been buying bags of pre-popped popcorn.  I'd really like to change that but like everything even a small popcorn machine costs money.  Most folks seem to like the whole snack bar thing, and the biggest thing we get requests for are candy bars.  So we may add a line next year, I just need to find a place to buy them cheaply. 

Also next year we are going to move the concession area to the deck area.  This will pretty much eliminate seating on the deck, but it will keep the snacks dry if it rains, and also make it so one person could in a pinch run the show and the concessions alone.  Which would be a big plus if one of us gets sick, takes a summer vacation, or if I have to run over to the Night-Sky to help out there.  I guess what it comes down to is just simplifying the setup.
