Even in the age of Netflix and other streaming services, you just can’t beat the experience of going to the movies. The big-screen, hot buttered popcorn, and full-on fun with friends and family. And don’t forget the Dino-tray for the kids!
These simple pleasures have been stolen from us during these trying times. COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on movie theatres in the last few months and it appears to be neverending. Our local movie theatre, Barry Cinemas, has been doing everything they can to keep things going. During the shut-down, they sold popcorn in the streets taking advantage of the Friday Night Cruise in Lander and Riverton. Community members were more than willing to buy in hopes of keeping their theatre afloat.
Now Barry Cinemas are open and showing older movies for FREE while making ends meet with concession sales. The movies have ranged from Disney classics to 80’s action flicks. Recently, they have brought in the Mystery Movie Matinee on Saturdays at 2 pm at both the Grand and Gem Theatres.
You may get a clue here and there and of course, the rating of the movie will be shown. The thrill is not knowing what you’ll get! What you will get is lots of yummy snacks from the concession stand and always an entertaining flick.
Let me answer your next question before you ask it. Yes, it’s clean and safe! You will see a hosed-down, cleaner than ever theatre with only 50% seating capacity. Social distance with your popcorn, sit back, relax, and let the Mystery Movie begin!
Supporting your local theatre is easy AND FUN!
The goal is to exit 2020 with our movie theatres healthy, happy, and up and running. It’s as easy as 1…2…FREE!
