I'm looking for advice please on a model of Popcorn machine, that would be suitable for a light commercial/social purpose - namely a community village cinema. where the maximum seating capacity is 200. & supposing half that number bought popcorn. I'd be interested to hear of other's experiences, any pitfalls, do's & don'ts etc. Tia.

I've got a small one from Argos a couple of years ago , it's very quick and makes a batch within 2 or 3 mins , it's cheap to use and easy to clean
However if you have a film on it would be making a popping noise if used at the same time / in the same room
We tip the popped corn into a bowl £1 from Asda and wash it up afterwards
Tbh we don't use it very often

Thank you for your reply. What quanityof finished popcorn does the machine make each time and what is the weight of the kernels at the start please?

The finished bowl is about 2/3 of a large cake mixing bowl , sorry ages since I've used it so cannot remember the original amount of corn used , it's only about 1/2 a mug full though
