Hi we are going to the cinema today. Is popcorm ok for milk allergy? I always worry about cross contamination with open containers like that - but its only in the US that popcorn is covered in butter, right? Here its just salt and sugar, I think.

No point asking the gormless people in the cinema...

The cinema should provide an ingredients list! I know ours did when my friend was checking for a wheat allergy

DS2 has a wheat and dairy allergy, and he's fine with the plain sweet popcorn.

We usually buy a bag from the supermarket before hand though - then we're sure of the ingredients, and we don't have to remortgage. wink

Thanks for the replies. They didn't have an ingredient list - it was lost hmm but we risked it and all was well. Next time will be more organised and buy from the shop to save money.

Wall-E. Me and DH loved it but our DC and guest (5, nearly 5 and nearly 3) were a bit too young for it!. I loved it because it didn't have any of those "adult" jokes that go above children's heads thing that was becoming a bit prevalent in moves like Shrek etc.

We all loved Wall-E too.

DS2 (10) cried in bed that night because he wished Wall-E was real.
(He had had a very busy day though! grin)

I liked the way the first part had no speech in it at all, and was still fascinating.
