Milwaukee, Wisconsin ( January 16, 2024 ) -

Marcus Theatres, a division of The Marcus Corporation (NYSE:MCS), celebrates National Popcorn Day on Friday, Jan. 19, with $5 off any size popcorn and a chance to win FREE popcorn for one year for current and new Marcus Magical Movie Rewards (MMR) members. The popular snack is over 4,000 years old and has an interesting history in the U.S. – it’s been a breakfast food, grew in popularity during the Great Depression and WWII, and even endured a short ban in theatres in 1949 for being too messy!1 However, nothing can stop moviegoers from combining their love of popcorn and the BIG SCREEN, with 92% of Americans telling National Today, the official website that keeps track of holidays and special moments on the cultural calendar, they love to eat the tasty snack.

“The smell, taste, and crunch of popcorn are synonymous with going to the movies,” said Mark Gramz, president of Marcus Theatres. “Not only was it the landslide favorite choice in national surveys, but it was Marcus Magical Movie Reward members’ favorite snack in both 2023 Blockbuster and Holiday surveys. “Popcorn is such a box office favorite that we wanted to make this year’s National Popcorn Day extra special and provide the best value so audiences can celebrate with whatever popcorn size their appetite desires. And for one lucky winner, the popcorn party will continue with free popcorn for a year from your local Marcus Theatre or Movie Tavern.”

MMR members who have already purchased and brought their 2024 Ultimate Popcorn Tub will receive one FREE refill, and members without the tub will receive $5 off popcorn purchases in cinemas and movie taverns on Jan. 19. Moviegoers who aren’t members can sign up for free on-site at the theatre and receive either discount. Both groups will be entered to win free.
