Landmark Cinemas has announced it will be reopening it’s Grand 10 theatres at select locations on July 3, including in Kelowna, West Kelowna’s Encore, Extreme and Penticton Theatre.

Landmark has implemented recommended hygiene and physical distancing protocols throughout its theatres and in each auditorium, but cannot guarantee the physical health of guests.

“We ask that you do your part by observing all recommended hygiene and physical distancing guidelines during your visit, and ask that you let us know if there is anything we can do to improve your experience,” reads a statement on the Landmark Website.

To ensure physical distancing and provide a safe and enjoyable movie-going experience, Landmark has made a number of changes that can be seen here.
