Movies and popcorn are always the perfect pairing. While some people enjoy seeing the latest blockbuster on the big screen, others prefer the comforts of their own home. With AMC Theaters popcorn home line, that movie theater flavor can be enjoyed anywhere.

Available exclusively at Walmart, AMC Theaters popcorn is available in six options. Both the microwave popcorn and popped popcorn varieties are available in three flavors, Classic Butter, Extra Butter, and Lightly Salted. To replicate that movie theater butter experience, the microwave Extra Butter comes with buttery topping packets, which allows people to drizzle even more butter flavor onto the popcorn, just like the movie theater experience.

According to Adam Aron, Chairman and CEO of AMC Theatres, the newest offering is part of the brand’s effort to “Make Movies Better.” Aron shared, “On March 11, which is Oscars weekend, we will enter the multi-billion-dollar retail popcorn industry with at-home popcorn that features the authentic taste of real movie theatre popcorn. We are especially pleased that we are doing so in an exclusive launch with Walmart, the largest retailer in the United States. We could not have found a better partner than Walmart for this important extension of the AMC experience into the home.”
