Refreshments were twice that of course.
I always skip the refreshments.
I'll skip drinks no matter what so I don't end up with a full bladder mid-movie. I even avoid drinking for a number of hours before I go to the movie.
And I'll always skip popcorn or anything else that will make me even thirstier.
If I were wealthier though I'd buy some of those potent sour candies to combat my thirst, since they make your mouth water. But not at my current level of wealth, considering the prices they charge.
