This is the best homemade movie style butter popcorn recipe ever- with very simple ingredients and easy to follow instructions! No fancy equipment needed- just a pot with a lid!
My poor husband LOVES going to the movies. He’d pretty much live in a movie theater if he could. He loves everything about it- and I am kind of a movie grump.
Don’t get me wrong- I love the movies- but it’s always so crowded, you have to deal with listening to people chomp and fuss with food, if you have to get up to pee you can’t pause the show- and it’s so expensive! I know, I am a killjoy- but I love just cuddling up with a good movie and a glass of wine at home.
Except…. the popcorn. I LOVE movie theater popcorn! It’s hands down the best part of going to the movies, am I right??
That’s why I am so excited to have a recipe for The Best Homemade Movie Style Popcorn. It is so addictive, easy, and delicious!
Don’t believe how easy it is?

My top secret? GHEE!
A lot of people (myself included) get a bit freaked out by the term ghee- but it is just a type of clarified butter. It gives this popcorn a rich, salty, perfect flavor- and is super easy to cook with. I love ghee!
Hot tip- you can buy ghee for the BEST price at Trader Joe’s. I buy a couple bottles at a time. It’s amazing, and is SO delicious to cook with. I love it with broccoli, brussels sprouts, just about everything!
To get the perfect salt, you really need to buy a small tin of popcorn salt. It is very, very fine (so it spreads more easily) – and helps get the perfect flavor! You can usually find popcorn salt with seasonings in your grocery store- sometimes it is also with popcorn kernels. If you can’t find any, no worries! Pop some regular salt in a coffee grinder or food processor and pulse until super fine.
You can easily add other flavors to this recipe- like add some truffle salt, rosemary, fresh grated parmesan cheese… the options are endless!
