Some people really like their regular movie popcorn! And co-writer and producer of 1984’s “The Terminator” Gale Anne Hurd apparently likes her movie popcorn so much, she was willing to walk out of a movie screening when they didn’t have regular movie popcorn (even when the movie being screened was her own movie, “The Terminator”)!
Over the weekend, Gale Anne Hurd seemingly attended a retro screening of “The Terminator” at the Metrograph theater in New York. Hurd then left the screening because the only popcorn flavors the theater offered was sea salt and olive.
Hurd later said on Twitter to 205,000 plus followers:
“Left the @MetrographNYC show of my film #TheTerminator & won’t be back. $6 sea salt/olive popcorn? No regular popcorn? Not my kinda joint.”
Here is her official tweet:
So apparently to Gale Anne Hurd, nothing can stop the Terminator… except of course, a lack of regular popcorn.
We’ll be back.
