Indiana movie theaters set to reopen
BREMEN, Ind.--- Indiana movie theaters are now allowed to reopen at 50 percent capacity. This comes after Governor Eric Holcomb announced that the state is now in Phase Four of its "Back on Track" plan.
"We’re all very excited, we’ve been getting a lot of support from the community," said Tony Barts, the manager of Bremen Theatre.
Movie goers across the state are now able to enjoy films on their favorite silver screens.
"We’re very excited to go out and see films again, especially at a local theater where we can support local businesses That’s very important," said movie goer John Green.
For people like Green, local theaters provide a different experience that streaming movies at home has lacked for the past few months.
"Getting out in a group and watching it and everyone’s enjoying it together it’s more of an experience, rather than watching it at home by yourself, it’s far better," said Green.
Although theaters are allowed to open Friday, several local ones, like Bremen Theatre, are opting to wait until next week to open their doors.
"We had to coordinate with studios and all that, get together with our booking agents, which usually takes about a week," said Barts.
Bremen Theatre will be showing the movie "Jaws," for the film's 45th anniversary next week. Admission is free to the public.
