In large heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add popcorn kernels; cover, leaving lid slightly ajar for steam to escape, and cook, shaking pan occasionally, until popping slows, about 5 minutes. Transfer to large bowl, discarding any unpopped kernels.

Meanwhile, in nonstick skillet, heat butter with rosemary over medium heat until butter is melted. Stir in salt and pepper. Remove from heat. Drizzle over popcorn; toss to coat. Stir in Parmesan and chives. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 4 hours.)

Makes about 8 cups.
