The Movie House is open!

The Movie House is open!

After two and a half months of being closed, the Yerington Movie House will reopen its doors on Friday, June 12.

The Yerington Movie House, which is operated by and directly benefits Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley, will reopen with safety measures and social distancing will be in place including limiting the one-screen theater to 50 percent capacity. Moviegoers will need to leave at least two seats between them and the nearest group while in the theater and at least six feet while in the lobby and while waiting in line. The staff at the Yerington Movie House has increased their cleaning schedule.

To celebrate the reopening under Nevada’s second phase, the Yerington Movie House will host a free-of-charge Back to the Future movie marathon, running all three of the 80s classics in order beginning at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 12. The concession stand will be open during the marathon. 

A more regular movie schedule will then begin on Saturday, June 13 with the weekend featuring “Trolls World Tour,” a family movie rated PG. The Yerington Movie House shows movies Friday at 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., Monday at 7 p.m. and Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. The High Note, a comedy-drama set in the Los Angeles music scene, will run beginning June 19 followed by Irresistible, a comedy starring Steve Carell on June 26.

Updates and renovations have been made surrounding the movie experience, including a cleaner and richer picture, better surround sound, a more centered movie, new paint and cabinets and a new brand of popcorn. Prices have also been rounded out to make the experience easier.

The Yerington Movie House is owned and operated by Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley. Proceeds from Yerington’s movie theater, which employs teens from the Club’s junior staff program, directly benefit the more than 1,700 youth in Yerington, Dayton, Silver Springs and Hawthorne who attend the Club every year.
