Why is popcorn omnipresent in US movie theaters?

Love seeing films in France, where they don't have concession stands... It's quiet in the theaters, no rumpling or chomping of the corn, slurping of the drinks, and no hideous aroma of days, weeks of stale popcorn in the upholstery! If the theaters need to make extra income through the concessions, then perhaps there could be another more innocuous snack?

Pity we Americans can't go two hours w/o eating! Would much rather have a nice dinner before or after the show...
