“It's been a couple years ago but would still likely be true today. I use to go to the movie theater every other week. One of my favorite things was eating a small bag of popcorn with butter flavor, soda, and a hot dog.
Right after the movie would end, I would start to have an upset stomach. By t... See Morehe time I got home, I had diarrhea off and on for about a day and a half.
So the next trip I eliminated the butter flavor. Smae result, just not as severe. I've always been able to eat popcorn at the movies until just a few years ago. I've talked to others who have told me they too could eat the popcorn - until a few years ago,
I believe the main culprit is when the Theater changed from popping their corn with genuine canola oil to using a (probably less expensive) dehydrated (?) type coconut oil. And the butter flavored oil is just another variation of this. And it's not just AMC. I tried the popcorn with no butter flavor at anothe local movie chain, same result.
Too bad someone there is not aware of this. .

“I went to the movies last night at 7:40 thinking it was safe because the theater room was empty. I got a medium popcorn with butter (they had little cups of butter they gave you behind the counter), a medium drink (filled from the soda flavor machine: I got cherry vanilla coke zero), and a bunch a c... See Morerunch (that was sealed in plastic). The straw for the drink was also behind the counter to help hygene. An hour or two after I got home from the movie (around 11) I ended up getting diarrhea and needing to quickly run to the bathroom multiple times in a short succession. I eventually felt well enough to go to sleep. I woke up the next morning around 7:30 am feeling really nauseous. Around 8 I had a bought of vomiting multiple times in a row. Not too long after that the diarhea came back. Around 9 am I actually was going back and forth between the two in short succession , and then soon after went back to just diarhea. I eventually felt okay enough that I could lay down and rest again and by now I feel a lot better but I still feel kind of queazy/ lightly nauseous and my stomache feels delicate. I also still have slight diarhea now when I go the the bathroom (it's about 7 pm). I haven't eaten anything since yet. See Less
