No More Popcorn Or Snacks In Alabama Movie Theatres?
When will this madness END???
Finally, we go back to movie theatres to see movies like "Top Gun: Maverick", the new "Jurassic World Dominion" and "Elvis" this summer.
Now, the theatres may not have any popcorn. Or any other movie snacks.
CinemaCon is the big movie theatre convention each year. This year, the talk among all the theatre owners was about the concession stand.
Norm Krug is the CEO of Preferred Popcorn, a big supplier to theatres in Alabama and beyond. At the convention he said "The popcorn supply will be tight!"
Not just the popcorn either.
Consumer expert David Lazarus explains below.
Covid 19 can not continue to be blamed for every problem in America.
I know we have had supply chain issues but this is getting ridiculous.
Furthermore, why is Alabama always listed in these warnings or notices. Is the south the only region of this country that is hit by supply chain issues? It is very frustrating.
A few theatre owners at the CinemaCon conference said it is one big mess, referencing the snack shortages.
When I go to the movies, I want my popcorn and milk duds. Is that too much to expect?
At the moment, the popcorn shortage hasn't really affected Alabama theatres, however the worst is yet to come.
The shortage of popcorn is expected, if nothing changes, to hit theatres in late June or early July. Which, of course, is right in the middle of the prime movie watching season.
