EL PASO, Texas -- Cinemark reopened its theater in far east El Paso with a lineup of "comeback classics" films listed on its' website.

Cinemark 20 and XD at 11855 Gateway West were back in business on Friday.

The No. 3 movie chain in the country said the reopening came with "greatly enhanced cleanliness, sanitizing and safety measures at every step of the movie-going experience.”

Cinemark said among the new health and safety measures at the theater are a requirement for visitors to wear face masks, reduced capacity in auditoriums, and increased cleaning throughout the facility.

Movie theater chains have been hit hard by the pandemic, which caused them to close locations in mid-March. Re-opening theaters has proven difficult in some instances as coronavirus cases surge in parts of the U.S.

    1. Right. Open up ALL the theaters, bars, gyms, SCHOOLS. Enough of this cowardice by our officials. Practice common sense actions but never surrender your freedom. Once lost freedom is hard to recover. Just look at all the communist nations. Their citizens literally die to come here.

  1. Not a fan of the brick & mortar movie theaters. For starters, way too much money. Wait a month or less it will be in Redbox. Kick back in my recliner, make my own popcorn & snacks, and pause it if I have to wizz!
