Regal Theaters Back Open In Midland & Odessa Here In The 432
It's been a while since Movie Theaters have been 100 percent open. It looks like we are headed that way.
Cinergy, Cinemark and Big Sky Drive In have all been open here in the 432 and it looks like Regal Theaters is NOW set to join them.
You know, everybody has been affected by the 'Pandemic' and the last year was brutal! But, you know 'Movie Theaters' probably were one of the biggest hits of the pandemic and the 'shut down' It almost feels like movie theaters were the first to CLOSE their DOORS from the pandemic and NOW the last to open back up. So much has changed for movie theaters due to the 'Coronavirus' that hit us in March of 2020.
Theatres in Midland and Odessa will open Friday with a wide range of health and safety measures, that include wearing a face mask while in the theatre lobby, auditoriums and restrooms. Masks can be removed only while eating and drinking while seated in an auditorium. Regal employees will provide masks to guests who arrive at the theatre without one.
Some Movies NOW Go To Streaming and Theaters On Same Day
This will probably the most 'lingering' effect from the pandemic. The fact that big studios will now release some MOVIES on a streaming service and at the theaters. While hopefully there will still be BIG movies that only open up at theaters, you kind of feel that 'THAT DOOR' has now been open and that there will be more Same day to streaming and Theaters movies in the future.
Will There Always Be Some SORT Of Social Distancing In Theaters NOW?
Even though mask are slowly leaving and some of the 'social distancing' is being less restrictive, again you kind of feel that there will be some form of both of these from now on. I guess time will tell.
Welcome back REGAL THEATERS in Midland and Odessa, so GLAD to have you back!
