    I used to work at Cinemark. I have to say after eating their popcorn for an entire year every single shift, and even bringing home large quantities of the leftover popcorn at night, I freakin love their popcorn

    For me it's cheese nachos or M&M's. Popcorn tastes nice but it has that styrofoam bite, the occasional bite squeak is almost as bad as fingernails on chalkboard, and you always get something stuck in your throat that makes you scramble for a drink every five minutes.

    Okay so I live by a AMC theater. I tried the popcorn and it was good. I didn’t know there were other popcorns better than AMC’s. If I thought AMC’s was good? Man I wonder what the others taste like!

    We have one AMC in Tucson and it's not popular. I just checked for a 10pm digital showing it's $8.99 - they are cheap. I've gone a few times, but their popcorn is Awful!
    We stick to Cinemark or Harkins

    If you think AMC skimps on there popcorn you should see how they treat there employees. I got sexually harassed and had to quit because they wouldn't even let me work a different shift from the guy harassing me.

    Pretty sure I'm the only one annoyed by this but flavocal is not the oil/butter that is added to the top. It is the orange salt that is added to the kernals while the popcorn heats up that helps give the salt and color to the popcorn.

    They should have sprayed the butter equal amount of times as all the rest, maybe that is what’s effecting it! And they should have read the comment on the pop corn after they ate it and made there decision cuz it might have changed there perspectives subconscious which kind of goes with pleaseavo effect??!?!
