With the film theaters going the best way of the good American mall (have a look at what you hath wrought, Netflix!), the large theater chains need to sustain with the adjustments. Some firms are brokering offers with streaming providers to showcase movies briefly in theaters earlier than shortly transferring to TV screens. Other chains are considering larger and selecting to deliver the concession stand on to your kitchen desk. Introducing: AMC popcorn! Only at Walmart! Yes, you should buy that overpriced $11 small popcorn and crunch it loudly within the consolation of your personal sofa!
AMC Theatres Perfectly Popcorn will are available microwave or ready-to-eat type. But you’ll have to provide your personal model of that iconic pumped “butter.” through The Takeout:
AMC Theatres Perfectly Popcorn will likely be accessible in each microwave pouches or pre-popped and able to eat, and it comes three varieties: Classic Butter, Extra Butter, and Lightly Salted. The Extra Butter microwave selection additionally comes with further packets of “buttery topping” (I’m assuming they’re not legally allowed to name it butter) so you’ll be able to apply the perfect quantity to your popcorn.
This isn’t essentially a groundbreaking improvement; massive chains will usually put their title on grocery merchandise to herald some further coin (taking a look at you, TGI Fridays). Yet AMC insists the popcorn you get at Walmart is identical popcorn you get at its theaters and that it brings “movie theatre popcorn taste and aroma to the comfort of home.”
I’m not overly sure about this transfer. Part of the attraction of movie show popcorn is having a dead-eyed teenager shovel these unnaturally yellow kernels right into a collectible Star Wars or Creed III bag. AMC has extra in retailer for popcorn followers. They additionally plan on promoting their cholesterol-raising wares in mall kiosks, to-go packages in theaters, and even delivered on to your own home. So perhaps you continue to CAN expertise the magic of a low-paid service employee handing you popped carbs dripping in oil! The motion pictures are again, child!
