The Movies at Midway team congratulates the teachers of Sussex County on implementing new procedures and safety protocols in order to safely reopen local schools.
As a thank you, the Movies at Midway will offer movie tickets for $1 each to all Sussex County schoolteachers Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 17 and 18. One discounted same-day ticket per teacher will be permitted with valid school district ID.
Movies at Midway team members know firsthand what it is like to spend countless hours developing a plan to reopen safely. Nothing is more important at The Movies at Midway than the safety and comfort of all guests and employees.
Along with movie theaters nationwide, Movies at Midway has pledged to participate in the CinemaSafe program. Promoting protocols and guidelines developed and supported by leading epidemiologists, CinemaSafe supports a safe return to movie theaters. As part of this program, Movies at Midway requires face masks for all employees and guests, encourages social distancing with floor decals and signage, has reduced auditorium capacity by 60 percent, and has enhanced cleaning and sanitizing protocols. In addition, theater employees undergo daily health screenings including temperature checks and are required to frequently wash their hands. Hand sanitizer stations have also been installed for use by both employees and guests.
For those who are immunocompromised or looking to hold a small-group event, Movies at Midway offers the option of private screenings during regular business hours for groups of up to 50 people. The cost is $195 for a retro movie and $295 for new releases.
