Cinemas open — with upgrades!Ridgecrest Cinemas general manager Kelly Walden (right), pictured with Lindsey Miller and Connor Weimholt, show off some of the new upgrades in the local theater — adult beverages and other new movie treats, a recently remodeled concession stand and heightened measures for sanitizing and distancing. The Cinemas re-opened last weekend after nearly three months of closure. “We couldn’t be more thrilled that we are open again! It’s been too long since seeing all of you!” said Walden. “We look forward to the community returning to the big screen throughout the summer!” While the film industry sorts out impacts on new title releases, Ridgecrest Cinemas is showing classic movies for $3 a ticket.
