Open: Let’s go to the movies!

From big blockbusters to LOL comedies and spine-tingling horror flicks, we could all use a dose of big-screen entertainment these days. Lucky for us, we have a choice of two 14-screen theaters nearby offering up a variety of movies, along with your favorite popcorn, cold drinks, and snacks: the AMC Burleson 14 and Premiere Lux Cine 14 Burleson Commons.

Since reopening in late August, movie theater chains, including those in our area, have gone to great lengths to ensure a safe, clean environment for movie-goers. Among the new measures:

  • Regular hand-washing required for theater employees
  • Increased cleaning of high-contact surfaces
  • Social distancing with floor decals to suggest proper spacing
  • Masks required in common areas, including the lobby
  • Increased cleaning for food service areas
  • Reduced capacity in theaters

One tip for our movie-going friends: we’d recommend buying your tickets online to minimize exchanging cash or credit cards at the theater. You’ll see the links for ticket purchase below. For purchases at the theater, Premiere Lux has set up special kiosks to exchange cash for gift cards to buy tickets and concession snacks.

AMC Theaters also recommends purchasing items with credit, debit or AMC gift cards to reduce contact. The theater chain will accept cash for ticket purchase if no other form of payment is available, but note that cash is not currently accepted for food and drink at the concessions stand or at MacGuffins Bar.

If you’d like additional details, here’s a list of new protocols and a video explaining new safety measures at the Premiere Lux Cine 14 Burleson Commons, and a video and checklist of ways the folks at AMC Burleson 14 are keeping their customers safe at the movies.
