Americana: Movie Popcorn

A lot of people can’t go to a movie in a theater without gettting popcorn. It’s as much a part of the experience as air conditioning turned down way too cold, and the kids behind you who won’t shut up.

Although I’ve tried to avoid it for diet reasons, I still love “buttered” popcorn. I prefer to think of it that way, instead of “butter-flavored liquid fat.”

Oh, here’s an experiment. Next time you’re at the multiplex and want some buttered popcorn, listen to what the licensed professional concession attendants ask. You’ll say, “I’d like some buttered popcorn and a small Coke.” The LPCA will respond, “Do you want butter on that?”

Happens almost every time.

It's easy to share with friends.

  1. I indulged in “buttered” popcorn recently when I went to see Star Trek; I decided (rationalized actually) that as much as it cost, I should take advantage of anything added at no extra cost.
