Ahhh…Summer Movies…

Posted by innovativeip on July 12, 2010

Summertime means movies.  New blockbuster releases, free movies-in-the-park, and if you’re lucky enough to live within reach of one of the few that remain (or are old enough to remember), the drive-in.  And, with movies, there must be popcorn.

On July 12, 1938, U.S. Patent no. 2,123,663 was issued for a coin operated popcorn machine. 

Hungry for more? Read the patent at  http://www.innovativeip.us/images/pat2123663.7.12.pdf.  My favorite element is the salt dispenser, adding just the perfect amount right as the popcorn is dumped from the hopper to the sack.  Enjoy!
