Don’t Take Popcorn For Granted! It Was Banned In 1800s! But Why?
May 20, 2016
We are so busy in enjoying our lives that we don’t consider the small things as blessings. If these were taken away from our life, it would have been no fun around. Popcorn is one of the example. We can’t even imagine of not eating popcorns while watching a movie, as it would be like eating French fries without ketchup. Do you know popcorns were banned during the 1800s at the theatres?
Popcorns were banned during the 1800s at the theatres due to a reason! What would that be?
Popcorn used to be a popular snack during the 1800s, and so many people started producing it in large quantities. But theatres in that era were considered as a high-class place, because there was no sound in movies before 1927 and people who were not that wealthy were incapable of reading. So the theatres didn’t allow popcorn so as not to disturb the high class while reading the movie dialogues. Now imagine that pin drop silence they required in movies!
Consider it a blessing that we don’t belong to 1800s, otherwise we would had to watch movies while reading and without popcorn!
