The Popcorn Kid was a short lived TV show that aired in 1987. The show takes place at the Majestic Theater in Kansas City. It focused on Scott Creasman, played by Bruce Norris, who always wanted to be in the movie business. The show was created by Barry Kemp. The first episode was aired on March 23, 1987. The series was well received by critics however most viewers didn't like the series.
Thanks to the YouTube user The Visual Wasteland, (formerly known as Blazerfan40), four of the six episodes were recovered (ie. episodes 1,3,4 and 6). He has stated that he doesn't have the missing episodes 2 and 5.
In the second episode of the show called "There She Is, Vic Damone", Damone followed one of the female employees, Lynn Holly Brickhouse trying to find a talent for a beauty competition. The fifth episode, "A Day in the Life of Ed Asner", revolved around the theater having a Ed Asner film festival, however a tornado threatens the festival.
