The History Of Popcorn At Movies

Today, movies and popcorn go hand in hand.  Every major theater in the United States offers popcorn to patrons and theater goers.  More home theaters are being built, and more people are putting in large, high quality TVs in their homes to watch movies and sporting events. The amount of movies you can watch in your home continues to expand and people prefer the comforts of their own home. However, you don’t want to lose their movie going experience and a popcorn machine inside your home can preserve that.

The history of popcorn and movies dates back to the introduction of movie theaters in American culture. In the mid-1800s, popcorn was introduced to the public at fairs, carnivals and rallies. After the first portable popcorn machine was invented, the amount of popcorn eaten went up dramatically. Eventually, as movies became more popular and theaters were built across the country, popcorn vendors saw it as a chance to make some solid money.

They’d post up outside the theaters and as movie goers would exit for intermission, they’d grab their favorite salty snack before heading inside. Movie theater owners couldn’t pass up the opportunity to cash in on the sales. Since then, popcorn has become a staple in the theater.

The days of selling popcorn outside movie theaters have passed. Bring the signature movie popcorn taste to your own home with your own popcorn machine.  You’ll have the best movie watching experience of all your friends.
