You Can Now Buy Real Movie Theater Popcorn at Walmart

And it costs less than at the movies, too.

Buttery, salty, endlessly snackable, popcorn is probably, if not decidedly, the best part of going to the movies. Well, if you prefer to "Netflix and Chill" and stream those Oscar-nominated movies at home, I've got good news. You can now buy the real deal movie theater-style popcorn to enjoy at home.

AMC Theatres Is Introducing a New Line of Popcorn Products

AMC Theatres is teaming up with Walmart on an exclusive line of "Perfectly Popcorn" movie theater popcorn. The popcorn will be available in two formats: ready-to-eat popped popcorn and pop-at-home microwave bags.

Whether pre-popped or ready-to-pop, both options will come in three flavors: Classic Butter, Extra Butter, and Lightly Salted. The microwave version of the Extra Butter flavor even comes with its own butter packet, allowing you to fully recreate that movie theater experience at home.

The popcorn will be available on and in Walmart locations across America starting March 11, just in time for the Academy Awards. For the time being, the Perfectly Popcorn products will be available exclusively in Walmart, with plans to expand to other distributors later in the year.

The microwave Perfectly Popcorn varieties will retail for $4.98 for a 6-count box, and the ready-to-eat Perfectly Popcorn (available in 4.2-5.2-ounce bags) will retail for $3.98. That's a steal compared to what you'll pay at the movie theaters—by me, a regular popcorn will run you at least $9-10. And the ability to enjoy all that buttery goodness in the comfort of your home? Well, that's priceless.
