Overland Park Cinemas in Boise decided to open its doors this weekend. Idaho Gov. Little allowed the move by adjusting his reopening guidance to move theater from stage four to stage three.
The locally-owned theater decided to open, the only theater we could find to reopen.
It decided to expand its old Tuesday night offering of $1 movies to the entier week.
“We know that the cliché ‘dollar theater’ has kinda gone out of style lately, and we also know that many of you really enjoy visiting us during our $1 Tuesday night! With all the world events going on, many families are struggling to find the resources to get away from the day-to-day grind and enjoy time with their family and friends,” theater managers wrote on Facebook.
OPC, in line with state guidance, limited its seating capacity to half in its four auditoriums. They also ask patrons to do the usual things like practice social distancing.
Hollywood hasn’t released a new movie to theaters sinceI Still Believe and Bloodshot came out on March 13th. Right now, the next movie to hit theaters is slated to be Tenet on July 24th.
