Life’s a movie with these Portland area popcorn brands

Whether you’re partaking in National Popcorn Day on January 19 or simply looking for a salty or sweet snack, this is the place to start.

Popcorn overflows from a clear glass bowl with Kiggins Bowl written in old fashioned red lettering on the outside.

Pop in to Vancouver’s historic Kiggins Theatre for a flick and fistfuls of buttery goodness.

Friday night, Portland — it’s on and poppin’. No really, today is National Popcorn Day, a holiday whose less-than-firm grip on the public conscience can only be explained by buttery fingers.
