No...not me. But, I asked to read the label of the oil it's popped in and did not see an issue. You could inquire the same. When I order the medium with butter, I don't feel so well after.....but it sure is good goin' down. ;) (probably not gluten related)

I used to work for National Amusements theaters. Their stuff is fine on the gluten, but I wouldn't eat the buttery topping if you have a soy problem...leave it plain.

I have done ok with it. We never get the "butter flavored topping". I know with any popcorn that I can't eat too much. Not a gluten thing. Not sure what. Maybe the hulls are scratchy.

Ingredient-wise, the popcorn should be fine - we don't let Chris have it because of cross contamination issues. If someone would grab a soft pretzel and then go in to get popcorn, then the whole thing is now contaminated with gluten. We just pop and take our own and the theaters have always been very understanding.

I'm not claiming that I can absolutely guarantee that every single theater popcorn is gluten-free, but in 10 years I've yet to find one that isn't. And that includes the buttery type topping.
