Popcorn is food, right?

OK, I don't know if this is the best blog for this particular post, but I feel compelled to share a couple of tips I've picked up from seeing movies recently:

1. If you don't want to pay $15+ for an oversized popcorn-and-drinks combo, check the menu for a kids' combo option. Usually, this consists of a reasonably-sized portion of popcorn, a small beverage and candy, all for you. It'll only cost you about $5, and your wallet and your stomach will thank you.

2. All movies are only $5 at Newport on the Levee if you go before noon on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday or holiday. Plus, there are usually only a couple of other cheapskates in the theater at this hour (and if you're anything like me, you find Newport on the Levee intolerably crowded and overrun with kids on Friday and Saturday nights).

OK, fellow Foodie Reporters, please feel free to resume blogging about actual food now.

Popcorn Fan here, just wanted to give an early HEADS UP to the first Movie Theatre Popcorn you can make at home. I saw it unveiled at a food show, and it was a challenge just to get to their booth to sample the outrageously good corn.

It pops on the stove in either a pot or a whirley-pop. It is SOOOO good, better than most theatres and much better price. They said it was going to be in stores soon, but to hit their site www.popntop.com
to get it ASAP
