Does your local movie theater allow you to butter your own popcorn, or does the employee do it for you?

We have one that does and one that doesn't... I prefer the one that does... if I'm gonna chow down on lard based fake butter, I'm wanna be able to CHOW DOWN, not get the skimpy amount you usually get when the employees do it for you...

I refuse to go to the movies. I'm not paying four damned dollars for some stupid popcorn that cost them little more than three cents to make.

Eww, why would you want butter? There is no butter where i'm from, just sweet or salted. I don't like popcorn though.

The employees butter it, and i think they are having a contest as to who can put the least on without the coustomer complaning.

*sigh*

I go to a theater that allows you to bring your own concessions in.

No! Thats their job! I'm suppossed to relax and enjoy not serve myself!

Although getting the butter exactly where I want it would be nice... *ponders*

haha my sister used to work at the movie theater over the summer last year when she was going to college, and everyone wanted their popcorn buttered, right? so it was like a reflex to butter popcorn whenever you got it out of the machine. so this one guy orders popcorn but doesn't want it buttered. so she gets the popcorn out of the machine but just automatically butters it. she said it was so funny, she and her friends just kept buttering it and the guy was laughing so hard, and he finally just took it buttered, lol.

The employees do it, and my God do they take forever. It's really sad.

OH god I LOVE buttering my own popcorn.
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 7/2/07 - 4:26:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
The employee does it but you can tell them less or more butter, of course. And they do have these little popcorn seasoning shakers where they have the straws and napkins. Anyway, I don't get popcorn. I get a pretzel when I go to the movies.
10 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 7/17/07 - 9:16:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
Both. They'll ask you if you want it buttered, and then they'll butter it. Then if you want more or something theres a butter... thing next to the straws and stuff.

They do it, but anyway, I hate the butter at the local movie theatre. It tastes a lot different than the butter they use at other theaters.

ugh. i hate the movies! its too loud. and too expensive. $10 for a movie ticket? i don't think so.

the newer theatres have the do-it-yourselfs. but it poses a problem for buttering the MIDDLE :D

At the one I work at, we don't butter it at all. One of the modern ones.

No one is forcing you to buy the popcorn.
Seriously, when people whine about the prices it takes all of my self-control to not say "No one is forcing you to buy it."

Anyway. When I worked at a theatre, customers buttered it themselves.

I believe the employee does it, but I'm not sure if that's real butter or some chemical derivative.

I've never seen anywhere you can butter your own OR have them put butter on it for you. But I'm sure if you brought some butter into the movies with you, you could do as you pleased.
