I thought they already did

AMC Theater Chain Bans All Outside Snacks:

After reporting a loss in the 2nd quarter of this year, AMC is doing what it can to increase revenue. Since the business model of movie theaters is to give all the ticket sales to the studios and scrape out a living on concessions, that means forcing more patrons to buy snacks--so it's officially banning any outside food and drink.

(SmartSpending notes that Regal Entertainment already has a similar ban in place.)

Well, of course, since security scanners have been perfected at airports (and didn't that go over well?), this opens up a whole new market for them.
