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.
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.
The Premiere Cinema at Edgewater Mall is still temporarily closed, but the company does have four locations open in Texas and Alabama. You can find updates on the reopening plans in Biloxi here>> https://bit.ly/341l7dQ
