Admittedly, there is little competition (read: none at all) in this absurdly specific category, but no other theater offers a savory snack as hearty or satisfying as Naz 8. These potato-filled dumplings won't stand up to the best Indian fare Artesia has to offer, but between the stale popcorn of most megaplexes and the overpriced foreign cookies of certain indie-theater chains, they're a refreshing change of pace and the perfect accompaniment to singing and dancing robots, singing and dancing gangsters, singing and dancing lovers or singing and dancing superheroes. 6440 E. South St., Lakewood. (510) 797-2000,
