28TH Guinness record in Croatia

Children from SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci, Cineplexx and Avenue Mall Osijek joined forces to build the largest box of popcorn in the world and break the Guinness record. The box was 51.777 liters in capacity, 5.7 meters in height and 2.5-3.5 meters in width. It broke the previous record set in Spain in 2005 with a volume of 52.59 cubic meters. The Spanish box had a volume of 48 cubic meters.

This historical feat took place on Saturday, at the main entrance of the shopping mall Avenue Mall Osijek. It took children from SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci and Osijek citizens two and a half hours to fill the XXL box with 2.8 tones of crunchy popcorn made by Cineplexx. The construction and filling of the box was supervised by Tarika Vara from London, the Guinness World Records judge.
- We are thrilled that the people of Osijek trust in us and happy that we can give them such an unusual record in return. This is just the first of many surprises we are preparing for our patrons – said Saša Kaštelan, the Cineplexx marketing director, who threw in the last few pieces of popcorn into the box.
- We are particularly proud that Cineplexx, Avenue Mall Osijek and Osijek are now owners of yet another Guinness record – said Markus Romić, the director of Avenue Mall Osijek.
No one was happier to break the record than 80 children from our SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci, who came to the event with their 16 SOS mothers.
