If you want fresh popcorn, that's fine. I don't know about all theaters, but at mine if you ask, we will put on a fresh batch, and we don't mind. But don't get impatient and start tapping your foot like a child, complaining about the wait time. I told you it'd be 8-10 minutes. The kettle takes a bit to heat up again. If you knew you would ask for fresh popcorn, you should've made adjustments in your timing to accommodate it. No one is making you late for your movie but yourself.
