14 Jun

It’s been a long haul for the Rio Theatre that pivoted to a sports bar during the pandemic. As of June 15th, they are back to showing movies and are kicking things off Tuesday evening with an early showing of Cinema Paradiso. Heads up though, don’t go running to grab your tickets for that showing, it is already sold out. Tuesday’s 9:30 pm feature is The Big Lebowski which is also sold out. As you might imagine, there’s a little bit of a pent up demand and a lot of community support. The movie line up continues this week with Anthony Hopkins in The Father and Frances McDormand in Nomadland. If you are craving to see a movie in person, this is for you. Note, there are still COVID precautions and limited seating, so if there is a movie you wish to see, we suggest booking in advance. To purchase your tickets, visit the Rio Theatre.
