Cinemark 16 movie theater reopens in Gulfport

GULFPORT, Miss. (WLOX) - Have you missed going to the movies?

One Coast theater officially reopened this week and another is set to open on Friday, following months of being closed due to the pandemic.

Cinemark 16 in Gulfport is now back open for traditional ticket sales. The Grand 18 D’Iberville Theatre is set to open Friday, Aug. 28.

Both theaters have implemented safety measures, such as elevated cleaning and sanitizing protocols. Movie goers must also wear masks and practice social distancing in all common areas, such as the lobby, concession stand areas, corridors and restrooms. However, once seated in the auditorium, those masks may be removed.

Socially distanced seating will also be enforced. Employees at both theaters are also required to wear facial coverings and gloves during their shifts.

Cinemark 16 will add sanitizing stations throughout the theater, as well.
