Monday marks another new phase of Quebec’s deconfinement and this latest phase allows movie theatres across the province to reopen just in time for the St-Jean-Baptiste holiday.
The only catch is that most cinemas including Cineplex, Guzzo, Cinémas du Parc, and Cinema Beaubien have decided to wait until July 3 before they reopen— citing a lack of available first-run films and the need to better prepare for the new physical distancing requirements.
However, while other Montreal movie theatres are closed, Dollar Cinema announced late last week that they will be opening their doors Monday, June 22nd.
In a message announcing its reopening on social media, the Côte-Saint-Luc establishment thanked moviegoers for their patience and their support while also stating that they will re-open “with all safety standards in place”.
Among the films scheduled to screen this week is Parasite which won the Academy Award for Best Picture; the family film Trolls: World Tour, and the French comedy Sink or Swim (Le Grand Bain) directed by Gilles Lellouche.
For those who missed going to the movies and don’t want to wait until July 3, Dollar Cinema provides a less expensive movie-going experience with admission starting at $2.50 or less and all snacks at $1.00.
