IPIC Theaters To Reopen In June

Recommended Posts

With Strict Guidlines



While countless theater chains across the globe are still evaluating their plans to reopen amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis, IPIC Theaters announced today that they'll be reopening their Texas-based luxury dine-in chain, beginning with their Fairview and Houston sites on June 4 followed by Austin on June 11. When IPIC allows their doors for select locations to swing wide, the theater company will do so under a set of what some would say are extreme conditions for guests.


What can theatergoers expect when they enter an IPIC Theater location, you ask? To begin, the theater will make use of the Centurion T165K EBT Thermal Scanner and Evaclean Electrostatic Sprayer. The what now, you say? Well, to put it plainly, the Centurion Thermal Scanner device will be used to evaluate a guest's temperature, while the Evaclean Electrostatic Sprayer is meant to attack microbes and decontaminate facilities. According to Deadline, the Evaclean Electrostatic Sprayer is a touchless disinfectant that reaches four-times the greater surface area compared to traditional cleaning equipment. The sprayer will be used nightly during days of the week IPIC is closed to the public.


But wait, that's not all. IPIC is also looking to establish a number of other precautions that will, in all hope, guarantee the safety of their guests. You can find a list of the guidlines set to be implemented at IPIC Theaters below:

- Pausing the blanket and pillow program in-theater
- Requiring team members to wear protective masks and gloves and encouraging guests to wear masks in common areas
- Enhanced sanitization protocols throughout the day, between showtimes and close of business using EPA approved disinfectant products
- Addition of a staff position dedicated to sanitation of all common areas during business hours
- Limiting theater operations to the public to Thursday through Sunday to allow for additional extensive cleaning
- Ensuring proper social distancing between parties in the theaters and restaurants
- Minimizing guest interactions with chain’s servers
- Addition of plexiglass at Guest Services and Express Counters

I bet a LOT of theaters will go Friday-Sunday only, or maybe Thursday-Sunday. That’s our plan for our indoor at this time.

Speaking of drive-in movie theaters...


Miami Dolphins to turn Hard Rock Stadium into drive-in movie theater


As as a Dolphins fan, this is a VASTLY better use of the stadium than actually watching the team attempt to play football.
