Some celebrities shouldn't eat popcorn…. (cough, cough) Kelly Clarkson (cough)
I worked at a theater and their “butter” was really just vegetable oil.
A little secret that I'm pretty sure y'all have heard about is that theaters don't use regular butter. The best makers of popcorn use Clarified Butter, aka ghee. Regular butter has too much water and milk protein, which is not suitable for coating the kernels. Butter and salt are the only flavors I like in theater popcorn, but Crackerjacks when going to MLB or NFL.
