Historic Brockport Strand Theater has biggest movie weekend since pandemic
âIt’s just great to go back to the movies,â said Gianna Grillo, exiting the building.
âI love movies and it’s like my first since January,â added Dominic Grillo.
Moviegoers have taken to eating melted butter over popcorn, candy, and soda. The owner said they had to shut down the timeline because they had no movement to show since the studios have delayed new releases. This opening weekend is a big deal.
âThis is the first weekend nationwide that big movies come out, sure, Godzilla in March was huge but Disney’s ‘Cruella’ and ‘A Quiet Place Part II’ they are rated for. doing this weekend pretty well, âsaid Jeff Yantz.
With the theater’s COVID-19 precautions in place, people were flocking to get their tickets. Families that came said it was great to watch a movie outside of their living room.
âWatching movies at home makes you feel a little cramped so it’s nice to be able to go out as things open up like the lilac festival, movies like that. It’s nice to be able to go out as things open up like the lilac festival, movies like that. do more things with each other, âKenny Ratliff said.
Movies on a screen mean job vacancies. Yantz says they’re looking to hire someone who walks through the door.
âIt looks like people aren’t really applying for jobs right now, but there are openings here and we’re ready to hire people when they come in,â Yantz said.
The historic Brockport Strand Theater has entertained moviegoers for over a century, and it is the second oldest theater in the country.
