The Movies at Midway recently congratulated the teachers of Sussex County on implementing new procedures and safety protocols in order to safely reopen schools. As a thank-you, the Movies at Midway will be offering $1 movie tickets to all Sussex County school teachers on Saturday, Oct. 17, and Sunday, Oct. 18. One discounted same-day ticket is available per teacher with valid school district ID.
“The Movies at Midway knows firsthand what it is like to spend countless hours developing a plan to safely reopen,” representatives said. “Nothing is more important at the Movies at Midway then the safety and comfort of its guests and employees. Similar to the changes Sussex County’s teachers and students experienced when returning to school last month, you will notice new safety protocols at The Movies at Midway as well.”
Along with movie theaters nationwide, the Movies at Midway has pledged to participate in the CinemaSafe program, which promotes protocols and guidelines developed and supported by leading epidemiologists to support a safe return to movie theaters. As part of this program, the 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, the Movies at Midway offers the option of private screenings. Private screenings are available during regular business hours for groups of up to 50 people. The cost is $195 for a retro movie or $295 for new releases.
