    Cinemagic popcorn is so good. I thought it was national but I guess it’s only an east coast thing??

    Cinemark has the best popcorn I have ever tasted. I frequently buy it and bring it home to eat while I watch movies or TV shows. I eat that whole big bucket they have there.

    We used to have a small theater in my town and my cousin lived down the street from it. He would buy one of those expensive buckets that they would give you free refills on and just walk to the theater to get popcorn. 😂

    There's more to it than just using the butter. Each theater mixes in Flavacol and coconut oil butter, and then afterwards they put a butter glaze on top.
    That's the secret.

    I go to AMC now since moving 'cause they have $5 tuesdays. Usually get a popcorn and drink and it's hit or miss. Sometimes it tastes bad. Sometimes it tastes great. I think it's who makes it.

    Cinemark popcorn taste good, but it is so greasy though. When I get a small popcorn at Cinemark, I feel the oil sliding into my stomach and clogging my arteries while moving through my body. I feel so disgusting afterwards.
