JaCo Theaters Say ‘Moderate Risk’ Change Makes All the Difference
JACKSON COUNTY, Oregon – The move to moderation means restaurants can now open at 50% indoor capacity in Jackson County. For theaters in the region, the change in risk level also makes a huge difference.
Under moderate risk, cinemas can now go from 10% capacity to 20%. A Coming Attractions Theaters manager in Ashland says every little bit counts.
He says he’s already expecting a busy weekend with the change.
“It’s great to be able to grow, especially in our bigger theaters and it’s about having movies where people are excited to come to our theaters and see them,” said Mark Murin of Coming Attractions. .
Masking and social distancing will always be de rigueur in cinemas.
