Pelican Cinema, a Klamath Falls-based movie theater affiliated with Coming Attractions Theaters out of Ashland, has sat dormant for months due to COVID-19 crowd restrictions, but with recent rule changes the theater has reopened to the public once more with film screenings Fridays-Sundays.
Most films presented are at a discounted $7 per ticket for ages 12 and up, and $5 for ages 3-11. Screenings are limited in ticket sales based on total seating capacity, to adhere to current social distancing practices. Contact tracing information is collected for each individual in attendance, and staff wear masks and gloves at all times. Every customer is personally escorted to seats in each screening’s respective theater to ensure proper spacing between people in each theater.
Additionally, select films will be offered at a reduced $5 “Guest Appreciation” rate. For Feb. 26-28 these films will be “Willy’s Wonderland,” “NomadLand,” and “Safer at Home.”
Under current Oregon restrictions, every customer must wear a mask to be admitted. Additional safety protocols implemented by the theater are in place to assure proper social distancing.
