    That’s interesting. I just read a proper lab analysis from 2011 and 2012
    that has a large Regal popcorn (16 cups) buttered is 1030 calories. Looks
    like your popcorn was full of magic!

    I love when restaurants give me nutrition information. I’ve been losing
    weight for over a year now (I’m over 50 pounds lighter than when I started)
    and I’m constantly trying to find new, healthier options for when I go out
    to eat.

    I’d like to be able to have popcorn at the movies, but I know immediately
    that any snacks a movie theater sells is going to be horrible. If
    everything was labeled, I could make an informed decision and choose the
    snack that’s lower in calories. I understand that some people are going to
    eat whatever they want, whether they know the calorie content or not, but
    not everyone is open to eating 5000 calories a day. As a person who is
    losing weight and trying to live healthier, I can appreciate the extra help
    when it comes to clearly labeled menus.

    Not only that, but these are the same fucking quacks who coerced McDonald’s
    as well as other fast food places to stop cooking their French fries in
    beef tallow. This is why fried food from fast food restaurants tastes like
    crap nowadays, because it’s all fried in manufactured and very highly
    processed liquid vegetable oils such as canola and soybean oil.

    That’s true to a certain extent, but if you think that posting calorie
    counts on menu boards is somehow going to make people eat better all of a
    sudden, then you’re living in a fantasy world. Studies have shown that
    people will eat the same amount of calories regardless of whether calorie
    and/or nutrition information is available to them or not. I suggest you
    watch the documentary Fat Head by Tom Naughton, where he discusses this in
    detail.

    When I go to the movies, I will not eat the movie theater popcorn because
    it’s bad for me. Also, that calorie got me a stomach ache. And it’s not
    healthy.

    Popcorn + soda + candy is a day’s worth of calories. If a theater is
    selling a 2000 calorie “snack,” the least they can do is tell you. Today
    we’re asking you to tweet at @AMCTheatres @RegalMovies @CinemarkUSA if
    you’d like to see calorie info at the movies #CalLoophole

    It’s nice for the occasional treat at the movies, but so many people eat
    tons and tons of this stuff. UGH!

    Are you saying people are too stupid to figure this out.

    Not everyone is aware about food nutrition and how to read labels, less
    when there is no information available like at the movie theatre! That is
    called ignorance, not stupidity that is why we have to read and get
    informed and then do your own research to figer out if it is true.

    Not everyone is aware of the caloric content of food or how much the food
    actually weights. Hopefully we’ll see the macronutrient content too in a
    couple of years

    I like waiting in line, it’s having that in person interaction that’s nice,
    rather than dealing with a computer, it’s a tradition that should stay like
    that in the U.S., plus it’s nice picking whatever seat you want on a first
    come basis

    Korean movie theaters are amazing!
    The chairs can bend all the way to the back so you can almost lie down
    while watching the movie if you want without bothering the person behind
    you because it’s so spacious! And they play music videos for you instead of
    nonstop advertisements while you’re waitin in the theater. Also popcorn is
    amazing.. Not salty or overpriced AT ALL.

    I love this. Minneapolis just got its first reserved seating theater,
    complete with bar & cafe with seat-side service. And of course, if you want
    to avoid ticket lines, there’s Fandango.

    I agree that there are many things that we took from Japan, but I can’t
    agree with the statement ‘a joke of Japan’ cuz there are also things that
    Japan don’t have, and, I want to tell you this. American made cars for the
    1st time, so is every car made in other country is just a joke of America?
    If you still want to insist that Korea is just a copy of Japan, again I
    want to tell you this, as hawaiikai2 said, we koreans transferred our
    culture to Japan since 7th century.
