It’s National Popcorn Day, and AMC wants to sweeten the deal. Your freebies guide

Popcorn fans, rejoice.

National Popcorn Day is Thursday, Jan. 19, and you can celebrate by getting a deal on the popular movie snack in theatres across the country.

According to ticketing company Fandango, popcorn reigns supreme among moviegoers. According to a 2022 Fandango survey, 83% of participants believe that movie theatre popcorn tastes better than kernels popped at home.

According to Cinemark, moviegoers consumed more than five billion ounces of popcorn in Cinemark theatres nationwide last year.

Here are some movie theatres that will be offering freebies and deals on Thursday to satisfy your craving for the buttery, savoury snack.

Both in-theater and online, guests can save 50% on traditional popcorn.

All year, AMC Stubs members can get a free refill with the purchase of a large popcorn.


Large popcorn is 50% off at the counter or through the Snacks in a Tap advance ordering feature.

To commemorate the occasion, Cinemark is also holding a sweepstakes.
