Wyoming Statewide Health Orders Allow Cinemas to Open – May 14, 2020
The Jackson Hole Cinemas will open again, but not yet.
The safety of our customers and our staff is our #1 priority. We know that many of you are eager to get out of the house to enjoy some delicious buttered popcorn and the diversion of a movie without the distractions of your household — and in the comfort of our luxury recliners — but you will just have to wait. We also know that many of you will probably not return to the cinemas for a long time and we will miss you. For both extremes, and everyone in the middle, please know that we are going to do our best to provide a safe environment for your outside-of-the-house entertainment needs.
“The Movies” have long been a place of refuge in times of uncertainty, alas a pandemic changed all that. Right now, with restrictions easing and few cases in Teton County, it is probably safe to open the movies, but does it “feel” safe? While restrictions are in place to keep people safe, restrictions and guidelines do not give many of us the actual feeling of safety. How will things change in the coming weeks after restrictions have eased here and in other parts of the country? There are a lot of unknowns for the immediate future.
Still, we are looking towards the future with optimism and have set a tentative opening date for June 26, 2020. We don’t expect (nor do we want) a mad rush on opening day. We hope to ease you back into the movies and feeling safe before any big releases.
Notable summer releases (all still subject to change) are Christopher Nolan’s TENET on July 17, Disney’s MULAN on July 24, and WONDER WOMAN 1984 on August 14.
Until we say “see you at the movies,” stay safe.
Cinemas Close as a Precautionary Measure to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 - March 16, 2020
The Jackson Hole Cinemas has sadly decided to close the Twin Cinema and The MovieWorks Cinema for the foreseeable future as this global pandemic continues to spread across the U.S.
We had hoped to stay open to provide, as cinemas have done in the past, a place of refuge and escape in times of crisis. But in this case, we fear we could potentially make the problem worse by risking the health and safety of our staff and our beloved customers.
We will reassess the situation in the coming weeks and provide updates as necessary on this page.
In the meantime, let us all look forward to that happy time when we can once again say: “See You At The Movies!"
Film Companies have temporarily pulled from release the following films:
MULAN, A QUIET PLACE PART II, PETER RABBIT 2, THE LOVEBIRDS, THE NEW MUTANTS, NO TIME TO DIE, F9
COVID-19 information for our patrons - March 13, 2020
We at the Jackson Hole Cinemas (MovieWorks Cinema and the Jackson Hole Twin Cinema) want to assure the community that we are taking extra precautions to protect the health of our customers and employees, and will continue to be a welcoming place for a much needed escape in this time of uncertainty.
The health of our community, staff and patrons is our highest priority. At this time, we will only offer 50% of our seats in order to provide movie-goers safe distance from each other. We have increased the frequency, caliber and consistency of our cleaning practices in the auditoriums, at the concession stand, and the areas in between in accordance with the guidelines from the CDC and other authorities.
Staff who are exhibiting any symptoms are asked to stay home. We ask that patrons do the same.
We are closely monitoring this rapidly changing situation and will provide updates to our patrons as necessary.
