When y'all said you miss movie theater popcorn, y'all were NOT kidding.

This past Friday (April 24th), Alamo Drafthouse in Lubbock ran out of popcorn after they handed out a whopping 800 boxes.

Traffic got a little...nuts. This is a shot of the traffic during the event via TxDOT. The cops even came to help with traffic. Y'all were perfectly well behaved.

I spoke with Alamo's management team shortly after the event. "It was incredible! I can't wait until we can reopen. Everyone was so nice and gave such kind words," they told us.

I also can't wait until Alamo Drafthouse returns. It's absolutely my happy place. If they do another popcorn run, I'll be sure to let y'all know first.
