Huntington 7 announces reopening August 21

Posted: Friday, August 14, 2020

The NEW GQT Movies is excited to be reopening in Huntington on Friday, August 21, and has announced their plan for keeping you safe on your next trip to the theater. After weeks of studying best practices for retail establishments, reviewing the National Association of Theater Owners (NATO) recommendations and reviewing state and municipal guidelines for theaters, GQT Movies have crafted their plan for the safety of their valued movie guests. They refer to it as the 3Ss Plan and here it is:

FACILITY – GQT will have signs in front of their facilities helping guests know their requirements; they will have capacity restrictions for each auditorium; they will enforce a minimum of three seats spacing between groups; they will place social distancing decals on the floor at the concession and box office lines; have shields at customer interface areas such as concessions and ticket booth; provide sanitizing stations for patrons’ convenience in the lobbies and restrooms; use an electrostatic sanitizing machine to sanitize broad areas such as seats and allow extra time between movies in order to properly sanitize the auditoriums.

EMPLOYEES – Will wear masks or face shields; will conduct a wellness check including a questionnaire and taking of temperatures; require frequent hand washing and sanitizing between touch points and have specific protocols on serving concessions for the protection of guests.

GUESTS – GQT asks that if patrons are sick, that they not enter and return another time when feeling well; they ask that our guests follow our 3Ss plan: social distance, sanitize and wash hands; safely follow recommendations; masks will be required in common areas such as lobby, hallways and concession areas; guests will social distance themselves from another group by leaving three seats between and guests; will need to come to the concession counter for refills and retrieve a new drink cup or tub for popcorn to avoid re-use of those items.

Although several of the planned releases have been pulled and rescheduled into 2021, GQT Movies are committed to bringing entertainment back to the public as soon as possible. At this time, the opening of the Huntington 7 is still to be determined.
