Many movie theatres across Alberta will reopen next week as part of Stage 2 of the province’s reopening plan.
Galaxy Cinema in Red Deer is among the theatres that will reopen to 30 per cent capacity on June 10.
All theatres will open with enhanced safety and cleaning measures as well as updated procedures to allow for physical distancing both inside and outside auditoriums.
“We recognize the new appreciation our guests have for the theatrical experience and we can’t wait to welcome them back to our theatres, as nothing compares to the big screen and big sound that we’ve been missing for so long,” said Sarah Van Lange, executive director of communications, Cineplex.
“We continue to prioritize health and safety measures to ensure that our theatres are a safe, relaxing, and inviting space for movie-lovers to escape with family and friends.”
As part of the reopening, Cineplex theatres will be showing highly anticipated new releases including The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, Spirit Untamed, A Quiet Place Part II, and Cruella; and opening June 10, In the Heights and Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway.
