Palace Amusement Company has re-opened its cinemas and there’s currently a half-off special on all pictures.

This continues for another big week for all early and evening shows at all locations – Carib 5, Palace Cineplex, Sunshine Palace and Palace Multiplex.

With the US movie industry facing a second phase of lockdown, the schedule of film releases are uncertain but Palace Amusement will continue to make the best effort to keep patrons entertained.

Before you plan your next movie date-out, remember the following:

To maintain safe social distancing for patrons seated in its auditoriums, Palace Amusement aims to sell approximately 60% of capacity.

Patrons will be required to wear masks and observe social distancing in queues at the box office and concession stands.

A maximum of four persons from the same household will be able to sit together as a group.

Individual patrons or groups, will be separated by a gap of two seats, among other safety measures as stipulated by the authorities.

Sanitisation stations are set up at convenient points throughout the cinemas and cleaning and sanitisation will be ramped up between shows to ensure a safe and relaxed atmosphere for all.

Palace Amusement has also put its frontline cinema staff through intensive retraining to ensure that they are aware of their roles and fully equipped to function within the new norm.

Frontline cinema staff will be outfitted with masks and servers at the concession will be appropriately gloved.
