    Is this stealing? And yes, its disgusting.

    Surfing youtube I came upon a vid where this guy goes into the movie theater garbage ( inside the theater, not outside in the bin) and takes out a large popcorn tub and large cup.

    He then goes into the bathroom and cleans them.

    Then, he heads to the concession stand and gets a free re fill of the two.

    Do you consider this stealing?

    On one hand, you could say he is stealing since he never bought the items in the first place,
    On the other hand, someone did buy them and this guy is just getting the free refill that person could have.

    I think it's stealing (you don't know the original purchaser would have taken the movie theater up on the offer of a free refill so I don't buy the person who took the tub out of the trash was just using the free refill of the original purchaser).

    Must not be that abused of thing at that movie theater since they are still offering refills. It's when the offer gets abused that you will see that theater quit offering free refills and moviegoers who are honest will be penalized for those that abuse the offer.

    I agree it is stealing. I don't think free refills are transferable or assumable.

    They charge $8 for maybe 50 cents worth of popcorn. Even if it were abused, probably not worth alienating someone buying their $12 movie tickets.

    definitely stealing. when i was in middle school, we used to go to the YMCA every weekend to play basketball and hang out. It was not uncommon for us to go to the grocery store next door and get a salad at their salad bar. the one day we came back into the YMCA and sat down to eat, one of the other guys who hangs out there took my receipt and left. i had no clue what he was doing but he came back about 10 mins later with a salad and the same drink i had. he said if questioned when walking out he would just show my receipt to "prove" that he paid for it since the time stamp was less than 30 mins from when i bought mine.

    i was not impressed and never let him do that again.

    The original purchaser is the one being offered the free refills, therefore the guy is stealing.

    Here in Cincinnati, most of the theaters have gone to a buy once fill & refill yourself. They sell you a bucket and cup for $12 and its' all you can eat & drink.

    Guess I haven't been to the movies in a while- had no idea popcorn was free refills.

    And another vote for stealing

    Stealing.....Most Theaters ask for proof of purchase before they re-fill the items. Best regards, David PS but I did see a bum go into McDonald and pull a cup from the waste ......and go and fill it with soda drink and then try to hide (by moving around) himself from the employees. Not claiming this individual is homeless..as always see him coming from the same area....

    Only the Jumbo size can be refilled. Small and medium popcorn don't have refills. Best regards, David
