JACKSON, Tenn. — Empire 8 has announced they will be reopening the theater on Friday, June 26.

Empire 8

For the first two weeks, Empire says it will be showing classic films for audiences of all ages, including “The Goonies”, “Trolls: World Tour”, “The Avengers”, and “Back to the Future.”

Entrance into all films during this time will be $5 per person.

Theater staff will be wearing protective gear and the building itself will be thoroughly cleaned on a routine basis.

To help with social distancing, their seat reservation system will also have new protocol.

“When you buy it through the computer system, it’ll automatically block one seat on each side of that, so the next person who buys a ticket cannot buy a ticket with someone they’re not with,” said Phil Zacheretti, the President and CEO of Phoenix Theatres Entertainment.

Empire 8 will open 30 minutes before the first showtime of the day and close 30 minutes after the last movie.
