Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Toss the chickpeas with the olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 30 minutes.
Melt the butter with the smoked paprika in a small saucepan. Toss the popcorn and roasted chickpeas in a large bowl; drizzle with the paprika butter, season with salt and toss again.
