Standards applied:

1 cup (8 oz.) popcorn popped in canola oil = 55 calories (source: http://www.popcorn.org/)

1 tbps "buttery topping" = 130 calories (source: the nutrition label on the bottles of it at work)

1 small (46 oz.) popcorn = 316 calories

1 medium (85 oz.) popcorn = 584 calories

1 large (130 oz.) popcorn = 894 calories

1 extra large (170 oz.) popcorn = 1169 calories*

*-my theater does not offer this size, but it is an industry standard that is offered at some places in the United States, namely the large first-run chains.

Using a fairly imprecise way of measuring, I concluded that one "squirt" of butter from our electric-pumped butter machine was approximately 3.5 tablespoons, for 455 calories. Hence, using 1 for the small and medium and 2 for the large (and presumably the extra-large if we sold it), you get the following:

Small = 771 calories

Medium = 1039 calories

Large = 1804 calories

X-Large = 2079 calories

Kind of gross to think about, isn't it?
