Following the guidelines and recommendations presented by the Government of Antigua, Caribbean Cinemas is delighted to announce its re-opening on Thursday, July 9, 2020 at their location in Friars Hill Road, St. John.

During the past weeks, Management was focused on preparing the facilities, information systems and protocols to meet requirements and measures that would provide confidence to their patrons. Also, employees were trained and provided with the tools needed for their protection and knowledge to effectively interact with customers.

With this new normal and to minimize contact areas inside the theaters, patrons will have the option to purchase tickets and concession items online. When purchasing online, patrons will receive a confirmation code that would grant access entrance after being scanned by one of the ushers and could also pick up their concession items with minimum contact and no handling of cash or debit/credit cards.

It will be mandatory taking temperature at the entrance, also once inside, the use of facemask for patrons and employees is required. There are hand sanitizing stations around the lobby area, clients will also find signage with the new guidelines about the protocol in restrooms, lobby areas and auditoriums. Acrylic panels have been installed in ticket booth and concession areas to protect employees and patrons. Cleaning frequency has been increased on high contact points, such as door handles, counters, kiosks, doors and railings.

Auditorium capacity was reduced to create social distancing by leaving seats and empty rows between parties. Additional cleaning time between shows has been added and will include seats and cupholders disinfection, as well as railings.
