TODAY/TONIGHT: Admiral Theater reopening & 2 other notes

Three notes for the rest of your Friday:

ADMIRAL THEATER REOPENING: As we first reported last week, today is reopening day for The Historic Admiral Theater (thanks to Peter Morse from nearby Mission Cantina [WSB sponsor] for the top photo). First movie’s at 3:30 pm – the marquee is updated, the lineup is set, the staff is ready:

The photo is from Admiral employee Diane, who writes:

We have been rushing to get the Admiral ready for our first moviegoers. We are so excited. We are opening with a skeleton crew of 4. Our general manager is Larry Wymer. We are going to do the best we can to make the movie experience enjoyable while having rules to keep everyone safe and comfortable. We are only going to have 2 movie showings per day (25% capacity) and we made sure to give us, the staff, enough time between movies to disinfect the theaters and common areas.

Welcome back!

The Admiral’s parent company Far Away Entertainment details its safety policies here. And if you’re not ready to go back to the movies, you can still support The Admiral via “virtual cinema.”

IN-CAR MOVIE RAINED OUT AGAIN: The West Seattle Chamber of Commerce‘s plan to show “The Secret Life of Pets” to an in-their-cars crowd at South Seattle College (WSB sponsor) has now been thwarted by weather two Fridays in a row – rain is expected to return tonight – so they are shelving it until next year.

ANTI-RACISM VIGIL: Organizer Nancy says the weekly vigil in North Delridge is on:

We’ll be back on the Delridge pedestrian overpass again. I hope you’ll join us as we take a public stand against racism.

What: Delridge weekly anti-racism vigil
When: Friday, October 16th, from 5:30-6:30 pm
Where: Pedestrian overpass on Delridge at the Delridge Community Center/Youngstown Cultural Arts Center.

Please remember to wear your masks!

If you can’t come in person, please consider passing on the info to your networks.

    I would not go there due to COVID-19. I don’t think it is a good idea to reopen any movie theaters just yet.good luck to your movie theater in this time of uncertainty.

    Woot! Woot! So glad to hear some GREAT news. Bring I. The popcorn. 🍿

    Nope-might be there if they didn’t allow eating in  theater-(no masks while eating & drinking) touching face/mouth -that’s a deal breaker for me. For those braver than I -enjoy.

    Walked over last night for the 6:30pm showing of Tenet! We had an absolute blast! Was nice to have a “normal” night out. Removed mask only while eating popcorn and enjoying a beer. Lots of space between us and other folks as the theater was 75% empty. Had dinner at Pizzeria 22 afterwards and we decided this might be the best night we’ve had since covid decided to ruin the year! The movie theater was SO clean, major social distancing going on as well. You do have to wait in line (6 ft apart) even if you buy tickets ahead online to check-in/ buy snacks because it’s a one way entry/exit situation now. The popcorn was SO GOOD, I had forgotten:) They ran out of Mannys beer which is a good sign in my opinion! #supportlocalbusinesses 

Sorry, comment time is over.
