Guests can make a donation of canned goods and non-perishable food items at the Green Valley location now through Sept. 26.

“By making our theater a drop off point during a month filled with great movies, we’re making it easier for people to help those in need.”

Donations can be dropped off at the box office of Galaxy Green Valley Luxury+ Theatre. If enough items are collected to fill one of Three Square Food Bank’s semi trucks, Galaxy Green Valley Luxury+ Theatre will give all guests who purchase a ticket on Sept. 28 a free 46 oz. popcorn.

Tickets can be purchased in advance online at galaxytheatres.com or at the box office, and just like purchasing tickets for a concert, choose a seat before even entering the theater. iPhone users can also find movies and show times and purchase tickets on-the-go with the official Galaxy Theatres smart phone app. Download is free in the app store.
