The BEST movie theatre popcorn in Winnipeg
So say you go to the movie theatres. You'd think the Silver City Polo Park/St Vital would have the best popcorn, but you're WRONG.
You're so very wrong. In fact, the BEST popcorn in Winnipeg is at the Grant Park theatres.
It's so good, I'd rather go to Grant Park on a tuesday than Polo Park or St Vital, or any other Famous Players theatre, because while they give a free drink and popcorn, its just not worth it.
Plus, you don't have to limit yourself to Tuesday. You can go Monday to Thursday at Grant Park for only $6.99! Sure, Popcorn is extra, but its worth it.
The secret seems to be that Grant Park uses Orville Redenbacher popcorn, wheras Famous Players uses Poopcorn brand Popcorn. AKA Act II popcorn. Which apparently leaves less unpopped kernels in a scientific study I just googled, but all the same, tastes like garbage.
So that is my reccommendation. Plus, Grant Park has self serve margarine. Butter Button!
IMAX theatre at Portage Place also has primo popcorn, but they don't have a butter button. Alas. Also you have to wait for movies to come out there. And I'm not sure what brand they use. All the same, at least their popcorn is always hot and well buttered.
