VANCOUVER (1130 NEWS) – British Columbia theater chains are cutting prices to encourage moviegoers to find their socially distant place.A limited number of cinemas reopened on Friday after a multi-month closure caused by COVID-19.

Sarah Van Lange of Cineplex, which has opened eight of its 24 theaters in British Columbia, says the discounts are likely to last until the end of July.

“Whatever the experience, whatever the length of the show, whatever the title, your film will cost $ 5 and $ 3 on Tuesday,” she said.

“We are really trying to gain the public’s confidence that cinema is a safe exercise, that they can come and spend time with us and feel good about it. “

Landmark Cinemas has also reopened two locations in the Lower Mainland.

They also lowered ticket prices to $ 5 and $ 2.99 on Tuesday.

The date on which prices will return to normal before the pandemic has not been set. Van Lange says it will depend on a number of factors, especially when Hollywood starts publishing new content.

To borrow a sentence from Doctor Bonnie Henry: it is not forever, but it is for the moment.
