After nearly 4 months of being closed to moviegoers, Cineplex is opening up select theatres across Canada. With Galaxy Cinemas in Lethbridge being one of them.
There are now new procedures in place for Cineplex theatres due to COVID-19.
Sarah Van Lange, the Executive Director of Communications for Cineplex says, "On the financial side, obviously it has had a significant impact on our business. But, on the team side, we've been entertaining Canadians for nearly 100 years if you can believe it. So, we are excited across Canada to be opening up our buildings, and I know that the team in Lethbridge can't wait to get back to doing what we do best."
For Cineplex, the novel coronavirus wasn't something that they were ready to deal with at the time. But, Van Lange says, "We have contingency plans in place for events like this. Nobody had any idea that a pandemic was coming. No one has plans for a 4 month closure. That said, we feel strongly where our business is now. And are focused on moving forward, and that includes reopenings."
Galaxy Cinemas is now open to the public, and select showings are now available for movie fans.
