Ritz Theatre FAQ’s and Policies

Bring-back Buckets

We now offer a limited number of plastic popcorn tubs. These tubs are refillable on subsequent visits to the theater during the season they are purchased in. The proceeds from these sales help fund the annual maintenance on the projectors at the Ritz and Motor Vu that allows us to continue showing movies at the value we offer our patrons. More information on this program is available from our snack bar staff.

Buckets are only valid in the calendar year purchased, and are usable at the Ritz or Motor Vu Theaters. Each promotional period ends on 12/31 of the calendar year unless otherwise stated.
