The popcorn maker is popping, and safety signs are up.
Movies titles went back on the marquee Friday at Stanwood Cinemas at the Pavilion. After being closed about seven months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the theater welcomes back audiences with five different films, starting with two showings per day around 3 and 6 p.m.
Earlier this month, Gov. Jay Inslee gave the green light to movie theaters in counties in Phase 2 of the state’s Safe Start plan to reopen at 25% capacity. Face coverings are required and may only be removed to eat or drink while seated, according to state health safety requirements. People must maintain 6 feet of physical distance between households.
Other movie theaters throughout the region, including those in Skagit County, also reopened Friday.
