Come Thursday, CinemaONE Limited (IMAX, Gemstone Theatres) will reopen its One Woodbrook Place, Port of Spain location.  

This follows the easing of restrictions on concession sales at movie theatres in the last revision of COVID-19 restrictions.

MovieTowne and Caribbean Cinemas have already resumed their operations. Estate 101 has its grand reopening tomorrow.   

CinemaONE CEO Ingrid Jahra said they’re happy to welcome their patrons back after being closed for most of the COVID-19 pandemic.

She assured all protocols are in place to ensure the health and safety of all moviegoers while at CinemaONE’s theatres.

Jahra said: “With the implementation of robust health and safety protocols patterned against the CinemaSafe industry protocols, CinemaONE and its staff are committed to preparation of a safe and sustainable reopening.”       

“After being closed for over six months in the interest of public safety, we are thrilled to           welcome back our staff and our DIGICEL IMAX and Gemstone patrons.”           

She applauded Government for its work in managing the reopening of the economy and the health and safety of all citizens.

She said: “We are truly appreciative to finally have the approval of concession sales from the Government of Trinidad and Tobago. We applaud the Government’s efforts to balance public health and safety with the need for economic revitalisation.”
