Annual Manual 2018: Top of the Pops 

How Boise's movie theater popcorn measures up

Food critics practically trip over one another in their rush to critique culinary delights. But we ask you: Where are the popcorn pundits? It's estimated that Americans eat somewhere around 17 billion quarts of popcorn annually. And at the movies, popcorn is considered a main food group and a major reason why cinemas still thrive. Time magazine estimates that theaters make a whopping 85 percent profit at concession stands (a big reason why customers are frowned at when sneaking in their own snacks).

We believe it's high time to seek out Boise's best movie popcorn. To ensure a fair apples-to-apples (or kernel-to-kernel) comparison, we ordered a small popcorn with no butter or extra salt at each of Boise's favorite cinema and placed them on a scale of one to five kernels.
