How can you trick your taste buds to believe you’re actually watching a movie while munching on popcorn?
What oil is used for movie theater popcorn?
Canola or coconut oil is what is used to make popcorn at movie theaters. They are both cleaner tasting and more nutritious than other oils.
What kind of butter do movie theaters use?
Movie theaters use butter-flavored oils. This prevents popcorn from becoming mushy due to all the butter that is being poured onto it. But real clarified butter won’t have the same effect as butter-flavored oils. Clarified butter occurs when unsalted butter melts slowly in order to let the milk solids separate and evaporate. This leaves you with only pure butterfat, or liquid gold, to drizzle over your popcorn. The recipe below will show you how to get clarified Butter.
How to make Movie Theater Popcorn
- In a small measuring cup, melt butter. Take out the foamy topping from the butter.
- Next, melt the coconut oil on high heat in a large pan. To coat the popcorn kernels, add the coconut oil to a large pot. Keep the pot moving to prevent burning.
- Next, cover the pot with the lid when the first kernel pops. Leave the lid slightly open.
- The pot should be shaken until it stops popping. Let the pot cool down on the heat for about a minute.
- Slowly drizzle clarified butter on top of the popcorn. Stop streaming butter once you reach the milk solids.
- Mix the popcorn thoroughly and season it with salt.
- Seasoning salt, cajun seasoning, or your favorite barbecue seasoning can be used in place of salt.
- Sometimes I like to add grated Parmesan or chili powder to my popcorn.
- Coconut oil is essential to recreate the authentic cinema experience. You can’t substitute.
- This recipe makes approximately 14 cups of popcorn.
- I have doubled the recipe and it has always resulted in burnt popcorn. The kernels don’t cover the bottom evenly. Make more popcorn by making batches.

Cinépolis Food & Drink Menus Hillsdale mall is currently adding restaurants, an outdoor area, and a bowling alley. Cinepolis is a movie theater that has been integrated recently. It stands out in terms of design and service.
Two tickets for “A Beautiful Day IN The Neighborhood” were purchased online before I arrived at the theater. The price was $11, which is quite affordable compared with the $11.75 Century Redwood City Downtown theater and $13.75 Century 12 San Mateo.
I thought that there would be an employee checking my ticket as I entered the theater. Instead, I was shocked to discover that the lobby was virtually empty when I entered the building via the escalator.
There was a full-service bar, as well as many tables and couches. The interior was sleek and modern. The high windows that allowed you to see outside made it a perfect spot for a meal. It could easily have been a restaurant.
But I soon ran into a problem. I couldn’t find the correct place to check my ticket. I nearly went into the theater without checking in. There are three machines that you can use to redeem your ticket. Although the process was simple, I found it a little strange.
I wanted popcorn to go before the movie. There was no place to buy popcorn. I saw workers making popcorn and other movie theatre snacks. It was like I was living in another universe. The employees were doing their own thing, and not helping me to get my popcorn.
I decided to quit because I was too late to see the movie, and I really wanted to enjoy it. No one checked my ticket when I went into the auditorium for the film. The theater asked me this question: “If you were to just sit down and not buy a ticket, would anyone ever catch me?”
They were also more luxurious than many theaters I have visited. They also had enough space to prevent awkwardness when walking between the seats. There was also a small lamp next to each suite and a menu. The menu was more extensive than any other theater that I’ve visited. Although some prices seemed outrageous, others were not. The 1/2 pound burger cost $13.95. M&M’s on the other side were $6.50.
I ordered small popcorn for $7.50. The service they provided was less helpful than it was annoying. Instead of having to buy it in person, each chair has a little “service” button. It will be pressed and an employee will arrive to take your order. The convenience of not having to get up while watching the movie was great, but the whole thing took much longer than if it were me trying to grab it.
My popcorn was not hot by the time it arrived. It arrived at room temperature which was disappointing. I would have avoided this if it had been bought from the store. Also, I don’t usually get popcorn or snacks during the movie so I found the whole thing redundant.
Another issue I had was with the delivery personnel. According to the San Mateo Cinepolis website, the food was to be “delivered stealthily by the ninja-like server.” But, I was constantly distracted by the employees going back and forth between the movie-goers. Although I believe the concept of service in a movie is good, in practice it is not necessary.
Overall, I feel mixed about the new theater. I enjoy the large seats, affordable ticket prices, and beautiful interior. I was disappointed in the service and the interruptions it caused.
Luxurious cinemas are a great way to elevate the movie-going experience. Cinepolis is the leader in this market with two San Diego locations: Del Mar & La Costa. Are luxury cinemas worth the higher price? This article will help answer that question.
The best thing about luxury cinema seats is that they can be reserved and purchased in advance. To choose a theater, movie, or time, visit Cinepolis USA. The price depends on whether the movie has a matinee ($17.50), normal screening ($19.50), or 3-D (a surcharge of $3.00).
Yes, There’s Booze!
People love luxury cinema because they can enjoy the latest movie with a glass or two of wine. Specialty cocktails are made with premium liquors such as Grey Goose vodka.
There are however some restrictions. This option will not be available for the new Disney movie, much to the dismay and disappointment of parents across the county. All theaters must be at least 21 years old. If the movie is not clearly marked as 21+, then you’ll be sipping Diet Coke against Jack and Coke. There are also non-alcoholic beverages like mochas and sodas.
Important to be aware of is the movie labeling. Technically, 17-year-olds can view rated-R movies, but they will not have access to the evening showings due to alcohol.
Cinepolis has a wide variety of food options inside the theater. You can find popcorn with butter and classic movie candy, but there are other options such as paninis, short-ribs, paninis, and chocolate lava cakes.
There is no child’s menu. However, there are edamame, quesadillas, and pizzas as well as mini corn dogs, pizzas, and other favorite dishes. This does not mean that you get a pricing discount, so a drink or meal for your child could cost as much as it would for yours.
Be aware that you will be eating in dark.
With a touch of a button, the waiter can be summoned. They will however automatically request an order once you’ve sat down. They have mastered stealth ordering and can cruise in and out of the restaurant without disturbing other customers.

Cinepolis chairs can be used to relieve leg cramps. They are more comfortable than many living room furniture and are wide and plush. You can be sure that no one’s head will obscure your view because the seating is set up in a way that’s not too straight.
As you can see, there are two chairs per section. This means that if there are three of you, one person will be slight to the left. Do single movie-goers feel uncomfortable? It’s not because movie theaters offer more personal space than traditional ones.

Copycat Movie Theater Popcorn
Transform movie night by making this Copycat Movie Theater Popcorn at home. It’s delicious, easy, and so budget-friendly! This recipe serves 4 and costs $1.22 to make. That’s just 31¢ per serving!
- 8 Tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
- ½ cup popcorn kernels yellow or white
- Salt to taste
- Add butter to a microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup with a spout.
- Melt butter on HIGH in the microwave until melted, about 25-45 seconds.
- Use a spoon to scrape the top layer of film from the butter. Set aside.
- In a large heavy-bottomed pot over high heat, add the coconut oil. Once the coconut oil is melted, put on oven mitts and add popcorn kernels. Swirl the pot until the kernels are coated in oil.
- Shake the pot frequently over the burner so the kernels don’t burn. Once a couple of kernels pop, put on the lid but leave it ajar.
- Continue to shake the pot frequently over the burner until the popping slows down to 3 seconds between pops.
- Remove the pot from the burner and let it sit with the lid ajar for 1 minute (this will give any remaining kernels time to pop).
- Remove the lid and pour the clarified butter into the popcorn in a steady stream. Once the clarified butter has been poured out and just milk solids remain, STOP. Transfer the milk solids to a container and keep it in the refrigerator for another use.
- Toss the popcorn until evenly coated in butter and season to taste with salt. Serve.
