CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

The Hollywood Reporter reports:

Pop goes AMC Theatres. Beginning in 2022, AMC will begin selling “AMC Theatres Perfectly Popcorn” at kiosks, counters and stories in retail malls across the country. AMC plans to launch five such sites in the first half of 2022. These initial locations won’t be in a mall with an AMC cinema.

Roughly 15 locations are expected to be in operation by the end of 2022. Significantly more outlets are planned for 2023 and beyond, says AMC.

The menu will consist of traditional and gourmet-flavored popcorn, candy and other movie theatre treats, Coca-Cola Freestyle options and bottled water. All popcorn will be freshly made on site. AMC also plans to make the concession, which will be freshly popped in nearby theaters, available in the home via food delivery services.
