Want to See a Movie This Weekend? One Boise Theater to Open in Stage 3
Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and Prime Video have been good friends during lockdown. You've spent a lot of time watching movies together but after Governor Little announced that movie theaters may open in Stage 3, it's time to give them a little space.
Be honest. You're tired of watching movies in your living room. If you're ready to get back out in public, this weekend you can watch movie in a theater and savor every last drop of that extra butter the concession staff lovingly poured on your popcorn.
Overland Park Cinemas is the only Boise area theater ready to jump on the opportunity to get the projectors up and running again. They'll be following all the protocols outlined by the state for a safe reopening, so that means only 50% of their regular seating will be in use but they're excited to see their guests for the first time since March!
In fact, they know that a lot of their guests may be struggling to make ends meet right now and could really use an affordable opportunity to get out of the house to spend time with friends they haven't gotten to see in a while. That's why they've generously cut their admission price to just $1 per ticket.
Want to catch a movie on the big screen? These are their showtimes for May 30 - June 4.

When will the other theaters reopen? The Flicks indicated on their Facebook page that they're working toward a June 26 opening. Villege Cinema told KTVB that it'll be at least a few more weeks for their theater. Our friends at ScreenCrush say it's likely that Regal Cinemas (Edward's parent company) will likely hold off until July when Tenet and Mulan are released.
