How to Install Movie Theater Butter Addon on Kodi 18.0 Leia / FireStick

how to install movie theater butter kodi addon

In this tutorial, you will learn to install Movie Theater Butter on Kodi 18.0 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 Link-Select. 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 Auto-Play. This variant offers one-click play and automatically chooses the best link for you.

I like Link-Select version more because it can stream in up to 4K resolution. On the other hand, the Auto-Play version is restricted to max 720p streaming. Of course, the Auto-Play variant is quicker. And, since it is limited to 720p, it is often faster to stream. It is totally up to you to decide which one you want to use. I have installed both of them.

Attention KODI Users: Read before you continue

Kodi Add-ons offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming copyrighted Movies / TV shows / Sports. Kodi users are strongly advised to always use a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).

After trying several paid and free VPNs myself, I found ExpressVPN to be the best VPN for Kodi. You get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Moreover, ExpressVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

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.

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.

Winding Up

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.
