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  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!
