In this tutorial, you will learn to install Movie Theater Butter on Kodi 18.8 Leia and Kodi 17.6 Krypton. The installation method used here works on Amazon FireStick / Fire TV / FireStick 4K, Windows, Linux & Mac, Android / iOS, and Raspberry Pi.
Movie Theater Butter is a third-party, on-demand addon that brings to you a massive library of movies, shows, documentaries, and some exciting specials. The addon comes in two variants. The first one is called Movie Theater Butter – Select Link. As the name suggests, it is your regular addon that fetches multiple links and lets you choose the one you wish to stream. The other is MTB’s Greased Lightning – Fast Auto-Play. This variant offers one-click play and automatically chooses the best link for you.
Update: Movie Theater Butter is no longer available. However, you may still install Greased Lightning addon. You may also try one of the other addons from our list of Best Addons for Kodi.
I like the Link-Select version more because it can stream in up to 4K resolution. On the other hand, the Auto-Play version is usually limited to max 1080 p streaming. Of course, the Auto-Play variant is quicker. It is totally up to you to decide which one you want to use. I have installed both of them.
How to install Movie Theater Butter Kodi Addon
I am providing the detailed instructions to install Movie Theater Butter addon on Kodi. However, before we jump into the installation procedure, there is a small prerequisite that must be taken care of.
You can install third-party addons on Kodi, but only after fixing a permission setting. Here is what you need to do:
#1. Open the Kodi app and go to the Settings (by clicking the gear/cog icon on the home-screen – on the top-left)
#2. Now you want to click System (if you use Kodi Leia) or System settings (if you still use Kodi Krypton)
#3. Select the menu item Add-ons on the left part of the following window. Now navigate to right and click Unknown Sources to turn it ON (it is OFF by default)
#4. Kodi throws a warning message saying it is unsafe to keep this option ON. Don’t worry. Movie Theater Butter is one of the safest addons.
Note: You may switch OFF Unknown Sources after installing Movie Theater Butter Kodi addon
Let us now get started with the installation process.

#15. Open Diamond Wizard Repo

Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons / Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Kodi users are strongly advised to connect a VPN while streaming. A VPN for Kodi will bypass ISP throttling, Government Surveillance, and geo-restriction on popular Add-ons. I always connect ExpressVPN on all my streaming devices and I suggest you do the same.
ExpressVPN is the fastest and most secure VPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
Movie Theater Butter Kodi Addon: A Quick Look
To access Movie Theater Butter, go to the Kodi home-screen and select Add-ons on the left. You will find the addon on the right in the Video add-ons section. Or, you may navigate to Add-ons > Video add-ons and click Movie Theater Butter
Here is the main window of the addon Movie Theater Butter – Select Link
Movie Theater Butter is an on-demand addon. Hence, you will find Movies & TV Shows as prominent categories. The home screen of the addon lets you explore options like Movies, TV Shows, Movie Collections, My Movies, My TV Shows, New Movies, New Episodes, etc.
Scroll down and you will find some specials too, like Movie Time, Kings of Horror, Kung Fu, Urban, MST3K / Sci-Fi, Documentaries, Kids Corner, Fitness Zone, Legends of Music, and Podcasts.
Movie Theater Butter addons provide plenty of mainstream and offbeat streaming options. Most video options within the addons work. The select-link version usually offers better streaming than the auto-play.
The addons also let you set up your Trakt account from the home screen. Just click the option TRAKT: Authorize
In fact, you can also authorize Real Debrid from the home-screen by clicking URL Resolver Settings.
Movie Theater Butter is one of the best Kodi addons I have seen recently. With a huge collection of content and smooth functions, the addon has become my personal favorite. Almost everything streams here. And, unlike the regular addons, the specials give me access to the offbeat content I don’t find anywhere else. All in all, Movie Theater Button is a good addon to have. Give it a try.
