Megaplex Theaters reopening for private family screenings

The Megaplex theatres in Utah were one of the last groups to close when social distancing first began. And like moviegoers across the state, they are looking forward to safely watching a film on the big screen.

Megaplex Theaters have announced that they will be reopening for private family movie viewings at select locations.

The theater group made the announcement on Twitter on Wednesday. Theaters will be available to rent to play one of their current movie offerings. They will include seating for up to 20 people with popcorn and a drink for everyone.

 

Megaplex says the package will run for $375 and be available at The District, Thanksgiving Point, Legacy Crossing, and Pineview.

Megaplex Theaters president Blake Andersen told KSL’s LiveMic with Lee Lonsberry that the reopening was always something they were looking to do.

“In Utah where we’ve done a fairly good job of managing this virus and this situation, it’s very likely that we’ll be one of the earlier theater chains to be able to open up.”

Anderson says they’ve been working with studios to bring back classic films as well as other films that were in the rotation when the theaters closed their doors.

Live Mic with Lee Lonsberry can be heard weekdays from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on KSL NewsRadio. Users can find the show on the KSL NewsRadio website and app.
