I have identified 3 critical parts to the movie theatre popcorn you love. I will break it down for you:

1- Paragon Coconut Popping Oil = Provides the 'nutty/toasted' flavor, the odor that permeates the local cinema, and yellow hue to the popped corn
2- Flavacol = The yellow ultra-fine salt of good cinema popcorn.
3- *Buttery topping = the goo you get when you ask for "extra 'butter' " at the concessions counter or clarified butter[1].

My current recipe: (2014-05-29)
Lindy's Stainless Steel Popcorn Popper for popping (you can use pots to great effect too, no worries)
3/4 cup popcorn kernels
3/4 tsp Flavocol
55 grams coconut oil (I have a digital kitchen scale)
3 tbs salted butter (you can use unsalted too)

Makes ... well ... a really big bowl. We hold it in a large stainless mixing bowl.
Enough for three adults who really like to eat popcorn.
990 calories for the entire bowl. I eat about 1/3 bowl ... ergo about 330 calories.

Directions:
[] Popcorn
With stove on high, put Flavocol and coconut oil in kettle and melt then swish a little to distribute. Dump in popcorn and close lid. Stir kettle with crank. This recipe makes more than can fit in the Lindy's kettle, so I quickly pour off SOME of the extra when the kettle fills and put it back on the stove.

[] Clarified butter topping
Put the butter in a small bowl or mug and microwave _as low as it goes_ for five minutes. The objective is to melt the butter slowly and prevent it from 'boiling and crackling'.

I just found this huge gallon jug of red coconut oil. I've been using it for weeks now and it tastes and handles just like the movie theater. It is semi solid at room temperature.

A friend I know has owned a movie theater for over 20 years. He told me the industry secret.
You know that old popcorn smell at the movie theater? That sweet smell that reassures you and lets you know you've arrived in the cool air conditioned retreat of your favorite movie house? That smell is red coconut oil cooking over high heat. Sadly the health conscious has abandoned this, but still today in most theater's red coconut oil is used. I've found a couple products I really like but they come in tiny containers. That's no good. This is a gallon. Bring on the popcorn! This will be enough to serve an entire crowd at a high school football game. You only need a tablespoon and a half for an 1/4 cup of uncooked popcorn.

Next get Flavorcol. This is the seasoned salt that is used.

Don't use butter. It won't turn out right. Use butter flavored topping.
Good Luck!

I've been studying up on how to make the perfect popcorn for quite some time now, and the very best advice I got was right here on Amazon! Lots of "popcorn people" here, many of whom revealed their secrets. I bought the threesome recommended by Amazon: Paragon Coconut Oil, Paragon Popcorn, and Flavacol. With Super-Saver shipping, it's a deal that can't be beat.

After reading the instructions on all 3 ingredients and the reviews published herein, I settled on the following recipe: 1/4 cup of coconut oil, 3/4 cup of popping corn, and 1 teaspoon of Flavacol. I heated up the oil, added the popcorn, then added the Flavacol while the stirrer was churning. I kept my fingers crossed and waited. All of a sudden, all hell broke loose and the popcorn commenced to popping. Much faster than that Orville Redenbacker crap---this was like a machine gun going off! Very few unpopped kernels compared to brands I've purchased in the supermarket. This is the real deal, folks. My house smells like the lobby of a movie theatre!

After a squirt of butter, I chowed down on the best popcorn I've ever eaten! Seriously. Buying the ingredients in these quantities saved a bunch of money compared to the supermarket, and I have enough to last for a very long time.

I'd advice folks to buy a few Tupperware re-useable cereal containers to store the bulk popcorn, as the bag cannot be resealed; and I'm also looking into getting some smaller jars for more convenient storage and use of the coconut oil.

Thanks to all who contributed their advice to this "forum" of sorts!

Coconut oil is what they use at the movie theaters. Accounts for that sweet almost floral fragrance. Makes great movie theater style popcorn. Kinda scary seeing this giant tub of orange oil. Even scarier seeing the level of it going down. But does make crispy, fragrant popcorn. it solidifies at room temperature, so you have to scoop it out into a bowl, microwave it at 30 seconds and then it goes into the kettle.

Just like movie theater popcorn. I used an internet suggestion. Melted a small amount of coconut popcorn popping oil in the microwave and filled a ice cube tray with the oil. Placed in freezer. Excellent idea, just the right amount of oil in the cube, without the mess of digging into the jar.
