Some exciting news for local movie lovers today as Dauphins Countryfest Community Cinema is set to reopen after being closed for 15 of the last 19 months.
General Manager of the Countryfest Community Cinema, Ron Suchoplas, spoke to CKDM about the reopening and the impact COVID-19 has left on the theatre,
"I don't know if it's like a reopening or kind of like our first opening. Some of the things we're doing now is kind of deja vu of when we first opened ten years ago. Getting things ready, because of COVID we've had to lay off our staff twice so basically we've got pretty well all new staff. and you know, get the theatre back in shape again and everything ready to welcome guests."
Suchoplas emphasized the public health guidelines the theatre will follow upon reopening,
"There's going to going to be some new guidelines for us reopening this time around versus last year. Everyone has to be double vaccinated plus their two weeks, so we will have to verify that as people come to our building. Anyone from 0-11 they can come with an adult that has been fully immunized. We are still complying with the six-foot rule. Anybody moving around our building will still have to be required to wear a mask, but as soon as they sit down and enjoy the show and eat their snacks, they are welcome to take their masks off."
Space Jam: A New Legacy will kick off the theatres reopening at 3:30 pm. Other feature films you can look forward to on opening night are; Black Widow, Snake Eyes and F9.
