Popcorn Party

Bay Area Bites on Friday published a rundown of popcorn quality at a number of Bay Area movie theaters. They had some nice stuff to say about the Roxie:

They make fresh popcorn every night, popping it in peanut oil instead of the more commonly used canola oil. They also offer real butter as a topping and charge $4.50 for a large tub, the least expensive tub of popcorn in the survey.

(Thanks, Brittney!)

UPDATE: Indeed, the Roxie says, “If you haven’t been in to see who is gracing the small, medium and large portions lately, you need to rectify that.”
