The Tower Theater reopens with the closure of Regal Cinemas

The iconic Tower Theater in Sacramento reopened its doors on Thursday for the first time in seven months. General Manager Dave Parker said: “It is very exciting to be open,” and when the new Corona virus pandemic hit California, prompting officials to impose restrictions on public health as a way to mitigate the spread of the virus, many entertainment industries, including cinemas, since State shutdown, Parker was the only Tower Theater employee. Now, the theater was able to return about half of its staff. He said, “I’ve been doing this for several decades, and I’ve never done anything like this.” From the box office to the auditorium, guests will notice new safety protocols in place, including mask requirements, plexiglass breaks at ticket sales, the concession stand and every other row in the halls closed. Under state supervision, Sacramento County movie theaters can fill only a quarter of their seats. “And there are three seats in between each person – a very large space,” Parker said. While one theater welcomed its guests again, another theater closed its doors. On Thursday, Regal Cinemas temporarily closed all 536 theaters across the country due to the pandemic. “It’s disgusting for their business because this is a huge cinema company that just closed,” said Carmen Thurman. Crystal Zamora is running the foot of the building from Regal Cinemas on Delta Shores and said she was worried about the theater staff. “I really feel about them.” “I know a lot of companies are really struggling.” “I hope when everything opens, everyone will go out and make up for any losses.” Meanwhile, as Tower Theater celebrates his comeback, Parker said the future of cinema is unclear. Will the theater remain open? Is the industry? Who knows what will happen. So, you take it day in and day out, ”he said.“ I think we have a good advantage because our customer base is used to watching old movies, so we don’t need all the new products that Hollywood doesn’t provide at the moment. So I think this will help us in the long run. ”

The iconic Tower Theater in Sacramento reopened its doors on Thursday for the first time in seven months.

“It’s very exciting to be back open,” said General Manager Dave Parker.

When the novel coronavirus pandemic hit California, prompting officials to impose public health restrictions as a way to mitigate the spread of the virus, many entertainment industries, including movie theaters, were forced to close.

Since the state shutdown, Parker has been the only Tower Theater employee. Now, the theater was able to return about half of its staff.

He said, “I’ve been doing this for several decades, and I’ve never done anything like this.”

From the box office to the auditorium, guests will notice new safety protocols in place, including mask requirements, plexiglass dividers at ticket sales, the concession stand and every other row in the halls closed. Under state supervision, Sacramento County movie theaters can fill only a quarter of their seats.

“And there are three seats in between each person – a very large space,” Parker said.

While one theater welcomed its guests again, another theater closed its doors. On Thursday, Regal Cinemas temporarily closed all 536 theaters across the country due to the pandemic.

“It’s disgusting for their business because this is a huge movie company that just needs to be shut down,” said Carmen Thurman.

Crystal Zamora is running the foot of the building from Regal Cinemas on Delta Shores and said she was worried about the theater staff.

“I really feel about them.” “I know a lot of companies are really struggling,” she said. “Hopefully when everything opens, everyone will go out and make up for any losses.”
