Movie theaters in San Antonio and Austin, Texas, are set to reopen in the coming days with “airport security-style check-in."
Guests will enter a cordoned area near the front door, where they will be asked if they are anyone in their household have had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, says a Variety report. They will also be subjected to an infrared temperature screening, and with anyone over 100.4 degrees body temperature will be turned away.
In San Antonio, Santikos Entertainment will open three of its nine locations, says the Variety report.
Both EVO and Santikos are charging discounted prices — $5 a ticket ($3 for children at EVO.) They have each reconfigured their food service to reduce touch-points, and eliminated cash transactions. Staff will wear masks and gloves. The theaters will have spaced seating, with every other row empty and groups seated at least six feet apart, the report says.
