Rialto Covid-19 Preventative Measures

AS OF 16 May 2020

Dear Rialto Friends,
HOLD ONTO YOUR BUTTS … until the Governor gives us the go-ahead to open!!!
Jurassic Park and Back To The Future are the big winners this week. However, voting was so close between Jurassic Park and Jaws that we decided to show them both! For those excited for The Big Lebowski look to our Monday at the Movies in the future and I’m sure you will see it there soon.
We still don’t have an official date for Phase II re-opening but the showtimes when we are allowed to open will be as follows:
Friday,
JAWS: 1:30
BACK TO THE FUTURE: 7:00
JURASSIC PARK: 9:15
Saturday,
JAWS: 4:30
BACK TO THE FUTURE: 2:00, 9:15
JURASSIC PARK: 7:00
Sunday,
JAWS: 4:30
BACK TO THE FUTURE: 7:00
JURASSIC PARK: 2:00, 9:15
We’ll let you know via Facebook, Twitter and our website, as soon as we have firm dates.
We have a number of new safety measures to ensure the health and well-being of all our patrons. These include the following:
· All patrons will be required to wear a face mask. Disposable masks will be provided to those patrons who do not have their own. These need to be worn until the patron is seated and at any time the patron is not in his/her seat i.e. entering and leaving the theatre, trips to the bathroom or lobby during the movie.
· Patrons will be asked to line up outside the theatre (according to social distancing limits) before being allowed into the lobby. The word ‘Rialto’ is stenciled on the sidewalk to show people where to stand and how far apart.
· There will be a maximum of six people or six couples in the lobby at any one time. The first patron will be served from the register on the right-hand side of the counter and in the meantime the second patron will be waiting to be served at the register on the left-hand side of the counter. Service will alternate between the two sides.
· Inside the theatre every other row has been marked off-limits with ‘Caution’ tape to ensure social distancing rules. Patrons will be expected to keep the required number of seats empty between different parties.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience these measures may cause, however, I’m sure you’ll agree that we all need to do our part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and we greatly appreciate you observing them while visiting The Rialto.
