Letter: Roomier seats? How about eating fewer snacks?

I was a bit confused reading the article regarding theater renovations in Palm Beach Gardens (“Cobb Theatre in Gardens plans to add roomier seats,” May 14). Are the facts not evident? If roomier seats are needed, perhaps we should be asking, “Why?”

The first thing you see when entering a movie theater is food. Not just food — but calorie-laden, preservative-packed foods. Do people really need to eat while watching movies? No.

Americans are becoming larger because of the unhealthy options that are constantly in front of them. We are a country addicted to “instant gratification,” and most people will act on their impulses. Not only will the price of admission be increasing as a result of the renovations but, indirectly, so will health care costs.
