Are you ready for Swapcorn?

Have you ever been on a romantic date to the cinema, only to find you and your partner can’t agree on what flavour of popcorn to choose? Showcase Cinemas has the answer – after they created a limited-edition couples ‘swapcorn’ box to prevent any lovers’ tiffs this Valentine’s Day.

The split popcorn box allows couples to share one carton of popcorn, with both sweet and salted varieties separated. Couples can still enjoy that romantic cinema experience without any disagreements over flavour, so the only divide in the relationship is in the popcorn box.

The revolutionary popcorn box is a first in the UK and features a special Valentine’s-inspired design, fitted with heart-shaped ‘love handles’, perfect for sharing with that special someone.

The limited-edition ‘swapcorn’ boxes will be available nationwide across Valentine’s Day weekend* in five Showcase Cinema de Lux locations; Bristol, Derby, Glasgow, Leicester, and Paisley. Mark Barlow, UK General Manager for Showcase Cinemas, said: “Valentine’s Day is a day for caring and sharing with those closest to you. We want this year’s Valentine’s Day movie date to be the best that it can be, that’s why we are introducing our Swapcorn boxes.

“We think it’s a really simple solution for sharing your cinema experience, and your favourite cinema snack, with your loved one without having to compromise your choice of flavour.”
