The Cinemas at Northumberland Mall have been closed since March but are now re-opening with rules in place and limited screenings. Starting on August 14, Rainbow will be open Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday with matinees and early evening shows (no late shows). The first two weeks will feature “Unhinged” and “Spongebob” – showtimes will be here when available.
There will be a maximum of 50 people per auditorium so guests can social distance, and people will need to wear a face covering until they are seated – like in a restaurant, they can remove it while in their seats and eating snacks.
That now makes five (and only five) venues that have re-opened for entertainment in this new Covid-19 era. Details here.
Still closed are the Concert Hall at Victoria Hall, the Firehall Theatre, the United Church (for concerts), Best Western dinner theatre and Port Hope’s Capitol. There are currently no venues with live shows although the Capitol is celebrating their 90th year (Aug 14 to 16) with some events including free outdoor shows from their second floor balcony – details here.
