Concessions, including popcorn, candy and beer options, are also returning. Those who are are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are asked to still consider a mask expect for eating or drinking, while those who have not been vaccinated are required to wear one.

The 100-year-old theater, the only one on Cleveland’s west side, was previously supposed to open on July 17, but plans were stalled due to financial issues.

According to a recent Detroit Shoreway community newsletter, the theater run by Cleveland Cinemas raised at least $20,955 in donations, allowing them to reopen safely and confidently.
