Burnaby movie fans get ready because your local theatre is getting ready to reopen next week.
Cineplex announced Wednesday that if step two of the B.C. restart plan starts on time, theatres in British Columbia will reopen Tuesday, June 15.
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. Theatres in British Columbia will reopen with a 50-person capacity per auditorium, based on guidelines provided by public health authorities.
This includes the theatre at Burnaby’s Metropolis at Metrotown, but the new theatre Cineplex has built at the Amazing Brentwood, a five-screen VIP facility, isn’t opening just yet. It has applied for a liquor license from the City of Burnaby.
“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 reopening, Cineplex will be showing new releases, including The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, Spirit Untamed, A Quiet Place Part II, Cruella, In The Heights, and Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, and opening June 16, Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard.
