Treasure Valley Movie Theaters Offering Drive-Thru Popcorn Pick-Up
According to Governor Little's four stage plan to reopen Idaho, the earliest we may be able to catch a movie is mid-June.
If there is no significant jump in coronavirus cases and proper social distancing protocols are followed, large venues like movie theaters will get the green light to open in Stage 4. The target date to begin Stage 4 is Saturday, June 13.
Will Treasure Valley movie theaters re-open that day? It's unclear. Some major movie chains have been vocal about not wanting to re-open until new movies like Mulan (rescheduled for July) are available.
If you're getting by streaming movies through Video on Demand, Netflix, Disney+ and Hulu but you're missing that golden river of real movie theater butter you've got some options to pick up your favorite snacks at your favorite theater to munch on at home!
This Saturday, May 2, the new Eagle Luxe Reel Theatre will be offering curbside popcorn pick-up from 4-7 p.m. For $5, they'll bring a large family size bag of freshly popped popcorn to your car. To maximize proper social distancing guidelines, they're accepting cash only and are asking for exact change.
Frontier Cinema in Emmett has offered similar opportunities twice since Saturday. In addition to popcorn, they offered soda, regular and large size movie candy and cotton candy. Their latest curbside sale was last night, but you can keep an eye on their Facebook page for future opportunities.
