Regent Theatre Reopening Strategy
As we prepare to reopen our doors and relight the marquee, please read the information below to learn what we are doing in accordance with the CDC and local government to ensure a safe and healthy environment.
The Regent Theatre will reopen on Friday, October 9 for concessions to go from 6pm-8pm until Thursday, October 15. Movies will resume on Friday, October 16 at 7pm and continue seven days a week at 7pm and Saturday & Sunday at 2pm. The Regent is prepared for a safe, quality movie going experience for our staff members and patrons.
- The Regent will operate at 20% capacity with pre-selected “pods” available in the lower level and the balcony.
- The maximum number of seats in one pod is six. Groups planning to sit together must purchase tickets together.
- There will be one line for tickets and concession sales. No pre-sale available. Patrons will be expected to wait outside.
- Doors will open one half hour before showtime.
The Regent Theatre will ask that its patrons follow posted guidelines set in place to ensure health and safety so long as the threat to public health remains. Guidelines will be posted throughout the lobby and on the screen during the pre-show advertising.
Patrons are required to wear face masks upon entry and may remove them only once they are seated. If a patron leaves their seat, their mask must be worn to the restroom, concession stand, or otherwise moving about the theater.
To avoid overcrowding in a small lobby, there will be one shared line for tickets and concessions. Patrons will be expected to have to wait outside.
Distancing within the auditorium during the screening of a movie will place separate households at a 6-foot distance from one another. In order to achieve that separation, a minimum of four seats and one row must be allowed between each group of cohabitating patrons.
The Regent Theatre seats a total of 204 on the ground floor and 140 in the balcony. 20% capacity allows for 40 on the ground floor and 28 in the balcony.
Current Regent Theatre Membership holders will have their membership cards honored at the box office until December 31, 2021.
