WHO DOESN’T WANT TO WATCH SOMEONE CARRY A BAG OF POPCORN THAT FEEDS SEVEN TO YOUR DOOR?
Since Honolulu ordered everyone to stay at home, we’ve attempted to turn our living room into a movie theater multiple times. After all, every night can be a movie night when no one has school or a commute the next day. We turn down the lights and log on to one of our multiple streaming services. I even paid $20 to rent Trolls: World Tour for 48 hours, then made my family watch it three times to drive down the “price-per-viewing.” Since I have two kids, I’ve been able to replicate having to walk out during pivotal plot moments, bumping other viewers along the way, to help someone in the bathroom. But something was always missing.
The right kind of popcorn.
Consolidated Theatres hears you. The movie houses have been closed since March 17 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. A few weeks ago, Uber Eats began delivering concession fare from its Ka Makana Aliʻi and Mililani locations to homes from Kapolei, ʻEwa Beach and Wahiawā through Pearl City. (Take that townies!) Last week, the theaters began accepting takeout orders from the two locations for all fans. It’s not just the popcorn, although that staple is available in large ($6) or family sizes ($20); the latter being a giant bag that dwarfs the small bag of kakimochi that comes with it.
