With Guam downgraded to Guam PCOR 2, one of the two movie theaters on the island will be reopening later this week.

After nearly 10 months of being shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Micronesia Mall Tango Theaters is set to reopen this Friday, Feb. 5, 2021.

Tango theaters will resume operations in compliance with the National Association of Theater Owners on cinemasafe.org — a program that promotes guidelines and protocols developed and supported by leading epidemiologists to support a safe return to movie theaters.

As part of the reopening, Tango will enforce face mask requirements, social distancing at 6 feet apart, and temperature checks of movie patrons upon entry.

Tango will only accommodate 50 percent of the normal theater occupancy and only 5 out of the 12 auditoriums will be used. This means only 25 moviegoers will be allowed for each screening.

The other 7 auditoriums will be used for single parties, couples, or a party no more than 25.

Kit Lanuza, the general manager of Tango Theaters at the Micronesia Mall, tells PNC about some of the movie showings confirmed for Friday.

“Right now, the movies confirmed are The Marksman, Wonder Woman 1984, an anime film titled Little Things, and Promising Young Woman,” Lanuza said.

He added: “I am ecstatic and happy that we are slowly inching to normalcy.”

In October last year, the Tango Theaters at the Agana Shopping Center closed down and all the equipment has been sold, according to Lanuza.

On Friday, at the Micronesia Mall theater, the first showing will start at 12 noon so purchase tickets now.

Meanwhile, the Guam Premier Outlets’ Suzanne Perez said: “Our office was informed by the Regal Cinemas corporate office that they are looking to reopen their venue here at GPO sometime in April. This is dependent upon the mainland easing restrictions and the movie studios releasing products.”
