ENTERTAINMENT: How Admiral Theater is staying open

(WSB photo, this afternoon)

Need some diversion? West Seattle’s only movie theater is open. Here’s how the Admiral Theater‘s parent company Far Away Entertainment says things are being handled:

We are open and if you’re able to visit our movie theater, we thank you!

In order to promote social distancing, we’ll only be selling 50% of our seats to each show and scheduling shows further apart to allow for extra cleaning time. The 50% sales limit allows for more effective social distancing. Now there will be plenty of room to sit apart from others in all our auditoriums.

Employees have been asked to stay home if they’re feeling unwell and will also be screened upon coming to work. We will continue to take all extra cleaning precautions and measures.

We have some great shows on screen and hope you’re able to escape and enjoy a movie!

The Admiral is at 2343 California SW. Its lineup, showtimes, and ticket prices are here.

    Avoiding the prime time showings, I have rarely experienced any screen at the Admiral even approaching 50%.   I enjoy it for prime seating position, front and center,  empty seats around me  and  less viewer distractions.   A  good bet in this context.

    Thank you Admiral Theater!

    Creative response!  Restaurants can stay open via providing pick up/delivery service.

    My husband and I saw Fantastic Fungi today.  It is visually stunning and powerfully informative. Chances are you’ll never look at a mushroom in the same way again. We were 2 of a total 3 patrons. It is safe to go to the movies.

    Oh Thank you!we’ll be there at least once a week.

    We saw Fantastic Fungi too! Absolutely loved it. Rosalie’s description is perfect.

    I’m glad there open.

    If any families are looking for a fun activity (and a potential ferry ride), the Rodeo Drive In theater in Bremerton is a great way to go out to the movies and practice social distancing since you stay in your car!
    And I fully support going to Admiral, too, if you’re comfortable.

    How is the the theater cleaning seats in between screenings?  I love the Admiral Theater and want to support you, but I also want to see our community act responsibly as COVID19 is about to hit us hard.

    The original King Kong on Sunday!  Very cool.
