Popcorn Now Available at Screenings!

9th May, 2019

You’ve asked for it and here it is – popcorn is now available at ANU Film Group screenings starting from tonight!

Going to the movies isn’t quite the same without popcorn, which is why we’ve been investigating ways to make this right over the past few months. And we’re now thrilled to announce a new partnership with the wonderful folks at Cracking Corn to bring popcorn to our new cinema at Kambri.

Cracking Corn is a local, family-run business that specialises in hand crafting popcorn in a variety of delicious flavours. Since launching in 2016, they have earned a reputation as the best producers of popcorn in the Canberra region, and have become a regular presence at most markets, sports games and shows around town.

We will be selling two of Cracking Corn’s most popular flavours – Salted and Salty Sweety – with each bag of popcorn popped by hand and then heat sealed for freshness before being delivered to us for sale. The bags are also resealable so you can take what’s left home with you at the end of the night.

Bags will sell for $5 each – with 50% of profits being donated to the Rotary Club of Woden Daybreak, continuing our long-standing relationship with them, and in recognition of their many years of service running the ANU Film Group canteen.

Sale of popcorn at the ANU Film Group will be strictly on a trial basis to begin with, during which we will assess its ongoing viability based on feedback, sales and other factors. So if you like Cracking Corn popcorn and want to see it continue being sold at Film Group, be sure to stop by the front desk and pick up a bag at your next screening!
