Yes. You can make your own popcorn at home to snack on while watching streaming cinema during quarantine, but is homemade popcorn really ever as good as movie-theater popcorn?
The people asked and the Esquire Theatre in Clifton has listened and they will begin offering their delicious popcorn to go this weekend.
Popcorn will be available in giant $12 bags (which each contain the equivalent of four regular bags of popcorn). Purchases can be made via credit card (only) from 4-8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2-5 p.m. Sundays at the theater at 320 Ludlow Ave.
We like the popcorn so much we actually gave it a Best Of Cincinnati staff pick last year:
The Esquire, Mariemont and Kenwood theaters cater to moviegoers with refined tastes for film… and snacks. Offering a vast selection of foreign films and Oscar-shortlisted titles, the Esquire family of cinemas pairs artistry with the best bag of popcorn you’ll find in Cincinnati. Salt and (real) butter flow freely into carbohydrate-stuffed paper sacks, applied carefully enough to harbor the perfect amount of crunch to accompany your cola. It’s classic Americana. If all that popcorn is making you thirsty, each theater is outfitted with a bar to wet your whistle. Visiting film buffs can pour up a star-studded cast of beers, spirits and wines to go with their goodies — the perfect marriage of salt, suds and cinema.
