Grab your popcorn: Cineplex reopens Alberta theatres next week
Movie theatres across the province will be screening popular films once more as Cineplex announced its reopening plans this week.
All Cineplex theatres are scheduled to reopen on June 10 with a number of safety protocols in place to protect guests and staff members.
Officials say those also include physical distancing inside and outside of auditoriums, which will be filled to 30 per cent capacity.
"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, in a release.
