    Popcorn kicks ass at the movies. It's the best ever. The smell when you walk in, mmmmm, nothing like it!!!

    Why is it that you can't make popcorn at home like this????

    Even popcorn at the amusement parks isn't as good.

    Why is popcorn at the movies so good?!?!?!?? I wanna make some like that!!!

    Do you have a favorite popcorn at home? I prefer the Reddenbutters Movie Theater popcorn myself.

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    the best thing about movie popcorn is that you can usually go back and get free refills! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Did someone say POPCORN? [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]

    Bring it on ! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I like the Redenbacher's too, but now they have this ultimate butter or some shit, and I've left their movie theater butter flavor in the dust.

    Nothing beats the actual theater stuff though - and I can have the biggest fucking meal out at dinner just before a movie and still manage a family size tub on my own. [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img] ink:

    at home, i still use a hot air popper, very rarely will eat the microwave stuff. we get good locally grown raw popcorn around here. my roommate's got one of those stovetop hand crank poppers, works pretty good, too.

    my mom and my grandmother both used to manage movie theaters...they didn't pop their own corn, it was brought in, prepopped, in huge bags. they just put it in the warmer...the popper still looked like it just came out of the box, no oil anywhere on it. not sure how many chains are still popping on site as opposed to bringing it in already done...every now and then, mom would bring home a bag of the prepopped stuff, so we'd have the good popcorn at home.

    what i miss most, though, are the french fries they used to sell way back when my mom managed the drive-in (remember those, kiddies?) damn, those were the best, even better than the ones at school...

    Ever since I got a filling on one side of my mouth, it seems too sensitive to eat popcorn!
    I'll go with Pabs pick of Reddenbacker's Movie PC or ACT II's brand for the best!

    God, I love popcorn at the movie theatre, with extra butter! I know that theatre butter sauce/oil they pump on there contains enough fat to put a double quarter pounder to shame, but I don't care. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]

    That is a fact! In a past life I was a theater manager and I used to pop the first batch of the day. I would hit the flavored oil button twice for that batch and it popped a deep yellow color. That stuff came in large cans and the ingredient list would make any cardiovascular surgeon go into convulsions, but it is the key to the movie popcorn taste! That was the stuff that the staff ate and it was awesome! I would live on popcorn and Mountain Dew all day long. I can't imagine doing that now. Adding butter at a theater on top of the stuff that is already on it is overkill for me.

    I love Blockbusters butter flavored popcorn. It's the closest to the theaters popcorn that I can find.
