How many calories are in movie popcorn?

I know how many are in "regular" popcorn, but movie theaters add stuff.

This is a shocker for sure. There are 573 calories in a small movie popcorn, that is without added butter. A medium size runs 951 calories with no added butter.

Depends on the size, but because they are often oil-popped, even the smallest size, without butter, can be several hundred calories (around 600). Larger sizes can go up to and even well over 1000 calories! Once you start adding all of the butter, you are talking major fat and calorie content.

Of course it all depends on the theatre but the regular popcorn with butter has about 400-500 calories. Many of these theaters use tons of butter because they make the popcorn in large batches which requires alot of butter.
