Let’s all go to the movies!
Cineplex has announced it intends to begin reopening cinemas across Canada starting as early as June 26th.
The initial reopening will start with six theatres in Alberta, with more locations following suit on July 3.
“Throughout the planning process, our top priority has always been the health and safety of our employees and guests and ensuring that your time with us is safe, comfortable and welcoming,” says executive director of communications for Cineplex, Sarah Van Lange.
Upon reopening, reserved seating will be required as to guarantee physical distancing between its guests.
In addition, the theatre chain said their Rec Room restaurants/arcades will be reopening this week in Alberta, with a plan for the rest of Canada still to come.
Like many businesses across the country, Cineplex closed its doors in March in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
