Harkins Theatres Popcorn Hits Arizona Grocery Store Shelves

Now you can now get the buttery taste of Harkins popcorn whenever you want — without paying to see the most recent Marvel movie or whatever you’re looking forward to most.

Catch up on your couch with all the movies you missed in theaters without missing your favorite snack. Harkins Theatres announced that they’re going to start selling five flavors of popcorn: kettle corn, creamy caramel, cheddar cheese, white cheddar and classic movie theater butter.

Currently, you can find the iconic local favorite at Fry’s food stores, Bashas and Circle K, with more locations to come.

And if you want to gripe that it’s not the same outside of the theater, owner Dan Harkins said that they’ve been in the popcorn business as long as they’ve been in the movie theater business.

"We are incredibly passionate about our popcorn and are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring this new product line to grocery and convenience stores," said Harkins in a press release.
