Can I sue a movie theater for only having salty popcorn
3 attorney answers
What were you planning on suing for? You have no damages ($.) Were you going to file suit to force them to service salt free popcorn (expensive for you.) Should everyone with high blood pressure be allowed to sue? I have high blood pressure.

Anybody can sue for anything. The question is whether or not your lawsuit would be successful. I do not see a basis for a successful lawsuit. There is no indication of monetary damages, just inconvenience of not having non salted popcorn.
You can sue for anything you want but whether you would win (and what you think your damages are) are very unclear. You do not claim to have a disability, and it is very unclear whether a disability expert would consider changing their popcorn manufacturing procedure to be a reasonable accommodation to you being able to use the movie ticket they sold you.
Please DO NOT message or phone me with further questions or comments as the discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public (the only exception to this being for serious prospective clients). If you have additional follow up questions or additional facts to add, re-draft them into a new question and repost it. My responses on this website DO NOT constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship.
