In my country a theater ticket costs between 7 and 10 euros. We do not add sodas or pop corn as I am quite old fashioned regarding that. If I want to drink, I go to a bar and I chose a restaurant if I want to eat after the movie! Moreover I hate the noise made by the people eating and drinking while I am focusing on a movie. Am I becoming a grumpy old guy...? 

 

I remember the halcyon days when you could smoke in the cinema, buy overpriced orange juice and stay and watch the film twice.

 

Saw Sir PJ's film on the TV a couple of times. Very moving in a subtle way — he captured the gallows humour of the Western Front as well as the squalor. I would have gone stark raving mad in that environment.

Yes, the vast majority of infantry do adapt to their living conditions. It's surprising how quickly it can happen. About 2 days in my case and I'm a hardhead.  :)
