Local theaters back in business as Hollywood starts rolling


Prairie Cinema manager Jessica Pitzer and her fellow staff are anxious to fill the theater with patrons again, at least to a socially distant capacity.

Customers are encouraged to buy their tickets and reserve theater seating online. With every other row unavailable and a buffer of two seats between each party, this ensures a preferred spot to the movie of choice. (Photos by Correne Martin)

In the auditoriums, the cinema staff have labeled each row by letter, and each seat by number, to help direct patrons to their reserved seats.
