Broken Arrow's Warren Theater is reopening after closing for months due to COVID-19.

Reopening plans include a wide range of new health and safety measures based on guidelines provided from the CDC.

Regal employees will undergo daily health screenings, which includes temperature checks.

They'll also be required to wear masks and wash their hands every 30 to 60 minutes.

Concession stands will look a lot different; every other register will be closed, only certain items will be sold, and refills on drinks and popcorn won't be allowed.

Guests must wear masks at all times inside the theater but can take them off to eat or drink.

Regal says employees will monitor each theater to ensure guests follow protocol.

For the time being, theater capacity will be reduced to 50 percent.

To maintain physical distancing, two empty seats must be between groups.

Right now, Regal isn't showing new releases. They are showing classics like Jaws, Inception, and Star Wars as well as some newer films from the last 5 years.
