“Popcorn of the Living Dead” Highlights Arena Cinelounge’s Gourmet Popcorn

While it still perplexes me that the major theater chains haven’t made their popcorn available for curbside pickup, others are getting creative and offering up the perfect movie snack (this is science) in various forms.

Hollywood’s acclaimed arthouse, genre, and independent cinema, Arena Cinelounge Sunset has survived these COVID-19 days by sumptuously re-imagining cinema’s staple snack into a thriving gourmet popcorn business by introducing Arena Cinelounge’s Signature Gourmet Popcorn.

Available in 9 movie-themed flavors, genre highlights include the delicious Popcorn of the Living Dead, a cinnamon churro corn with crushed pretzels, Natural Corn Killers (naked with sea salt), and Once Upon a Time in Popcorn (mesquite smoked cheddar). The best flavor combo has got to be Meoli’s Bliss, which mixes bourbon caramel with espresso pretzels.

“As an independent theater owner, I’ve had to be creative about the survival and expansion of my business,” said Christian Meoli, owner of Arena Cinelounge Sunset.

“Each bag sold supports independent cinema’s survival – in the most delicious of ways!”

“With Popcorn of the Living Dead, we wanted audiences to go in without knowing what to find”, adds Meoli. “So, the end result became a layer of popcorn, then a secret layer under that, then a poster of a classic horror poster in the bag.”

Ultimately, titles like Popcorn of the Living Dead paved the way to officially bridge the gap between movies and popcorn. Poster artist Christopher Butler, who did the poster art of Chelsea Stardust’s Satanic Panic, was hired to do all the popcorn packaging.

Order some snacks for those forthcoming at-home VOD releases and help support independent cinema.

Notes the release: “Committed to the survival of independent cinema, Meoli has made Arena Cinelounge a safe haven for indie filmmakers to screen their films – ones often not shown at an Arclight, AMC, or other major theater chains. His dedication to these indie filmmakers drove him to find a uniquely appropriate way to save not only his business, but the only home that will screen these filmmakers’ works of art.”

Each bag contains blossom popcorn, non-GMO, vegan, dairy and nut-free, with the highest quality ingredients possible.

The complete 9 mind-bending flavors include:

  • Popcorn of the Living Dead – Cinnamon Churro with Crushed Pretzels
  • Eternal Popcorn of the Spotless Mind – Rosemary Salted Caramel
  • Natural Corn Killers – Naked with Sea Salt
  • APOPalypse Now – Jalapeno
  • Once Upon a Time in Popcorn – Mesquite Smoked Cheddar
  • Truffaut Truffle – Truffle
  • Arthouse Gold – Curry
  • Crouching Tiger, Hidden Popcorn – Sweet Chili Lime
  • Meoli’s Bliss – Bourbon Caramel with Espresso Pretzels
