Do they really issue refunds?
I've never heard of any movie theaters giving out refunds, cause someone didn't like the movie they pay for.
Considering the price for a soda, even water and popcorn, it should be free.
The concessions are where most of the money the theater makes comes from. They're often around 85-90% profit. While the percentage varies from movie to movie, the studios get the lion's share of ticket sale profits, especially early in a film's theatrical run when they're still paying off production and promotional costs. If it weren't for the concessions, movie theaters and chains wouldn't be able to operate, and even with them, they frequently go out of business or change hands in buy outs or mergers.
