Healthy Movie Snacks

Sony CEO encourages movie theater owners to add healthy snacks to concession stands.

Last week, Sony Pictures Entertainment Chairman and CEO Michael Lynton urged theater owners across the country to add healthier movie snack options to their concession stand menus. His speech addressed thousands of theater vendors attending ShoWest, the nation's largest meeting of movie theater owners in the US, held annually in Las Vegas, NV. Lynton suggested that snacks such as fruit, vegetables with dip, granola bars, baked chips, and unbuttered, air-popped popcorn be added as alternatives to sugary candy and calorie-dense popcorn and soda. The concession switch was further emphasized with a video address from talk-show host Dr. Mehmet Oz.
