4/29/21 UPDATE: We learned that one of our staff members tested positive for COVID-19, and much of our staff has been exposed. We immediately implemented proper public health measures, and the at-risk staff is now quarantined. With the temporary reduction in staff, we made the difficult yet necessary decision to postpone our reopening. Therefore, we will not open on April 30. We plan to reopen on Wednesday, May 12. We'll see you at the movies in May.
