Dear film friends,
Perched high atop our brick-and-mortar rooftop, I’m super delighted to shout: We’re headed back to the future!
As the nation and state reopen, the Cinema is moving forward, too, expanding capacity up to 50% with a continued commitment to safety and an exciting summer lineup.
On July 2, moviegoers can expect a reopened box office for walk-up sales, a full concessions menu including beer and wine, and comfortable new seating. Face masks will be voluntary for fully-vaccinated guests and required for all others, in accordance with CDC guidance. All guests may remove their masks while eating or drinking in their theater seat.
To accommodate varying comfort levels within our community and delivering on our mission to serve as a cultural and educational resource for all, the Cinema will offer Masked Mornings on Saturday and Sundays. During these first screenings of the day, face coverings will be required for all guests, audience capacity will be capped at 25%, and no concessions will be sold. Additionally, for those not yet ready to return for an in-person experience, our artfully-curated Virtual Cinema platform continues.
The summer line-up promises an exciting mix of first-run features, including Questlove's Sundance-winning music doc SUMMER OF SOUL (opening July 2), Anthony Bourdain doc ROADRUNNER (opening July 16), and fantastical adventure THE GREEN KNIGHT (opening July 30), starring Dev Patel.
Two beloved series also make a return. Big Screen Classics presents cinematic treasures best enjoyed on a towering theater screen: THE BIG LEBOWSKI, DO THE RIGHT THING, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, and JAWS. Sound and Vision features lyrical documentaries and narratives from across the globe. July’s selections are JAZZ ON A SUMMERS DAY, SISTERS WITH TRANSISTORS, FIDDLIN’, and DEEP BLUES.
Tickets are available online at noon on Tuesday, June 29, and at the Box Office beginning July 2.
We look forward to welcoming you back!
