    To me, being at a movie theatre to watch MMA fights doesn’t sound that appealing! Just how many meatheads will be blurting dumb stuff or standing the whole time. I would rather be in my favorite sports bar, or even my living room watching Diaz and Condit go at it!

    Pass. How am I supposed to drink beer and smoke bowls in a theatre?

    Baja, I thought you lived in San Diego. (I may just be remembering wrong)
    In the inland empire, and The LA area people just bring beer in, and smoke up in the theater. I guess you’d know this if you ever went to a movie on a weekend in so cal. I can’t imagine it getting any better the closer you go to Mexico.
