To our Valued Picture Show Guests,
We feel it’s necessary to keep our loyal moviegoers informed of the urgent state of our movie theaters as we continue through these uncertain times.
The COVID-19 pandemic has put movie theaters like ours at risk of going dark for good. From small independent screens to nationwide exhibitors, movie theaters employ over 150,000 people and have formed a cornerstone of the American experience for generations. Without swift action from Congress our theaters could close forever, depriving audiences of the magic of movies for years to come.
Together, we can urge Congress to keep movie theaters alive until they can fully reopen. Visit saveyourcinema.com to tell your legislators that you demand action to save local movie theaters now.
Help us spread the word on social media with the hashtag #SaveYourCinema. Every voice counts! Thank you for your support.

Picture Show Entertainment to Re-Open Grand Junction Theatre This Weekend!
Grand Junction, CO (June 8, 2020) – Picture Show Entertainment today announces the official re-opening of its Grand Junction, Colorado theatre on Friday, June 12. Operating under state and local reopening guidance, Picture Show will open its doors to the public at 50% capacity. This decision comes after weeks of training and implementing new procedures to keep both Picture Show employees and guests safe and healthy.
After more than a month of an overwhelmingly successful Curbside Popcorn Pickup service, Picture Show is excited to provide the affordably priced, luxury movie-going experience enjoyed by the residents of Grand Junction and the surrounding area once more. During a time when the community is eager to reconnect and enjoy a night of family fun, audiences can finally come together to enjoy the sense of connection found by going to the movies.
In advance of new major Hollywood movie releases like Unhinged, Tenet, Mulan, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, Wonder Woman 1984 and Quiet Place 2 that will begin rolling out in July, guests can expect to see past award-winning movies on the first weekend like Midway, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Now You See Me, Batman Begins and classics like Space Jam at discounted prices. Updated business hours and adjusted ticket prices have been implemented for the first phase of reopening. Movie tickets will be $2.50 per person and group rentals are being offered for an exciting VIP experience with a maximum of 25 friends and family, for a value rate of $75.00 per screening (limitations apply). The theatre will be open daily from 11:45 am – 8:15 pm.
Visitors returning to Picture Show will have the opportunity to enjoy a full menu of food and beverage items including $1 hot dogs, delicious burgers, funnel cake fries, Freestyle Coca-Cola, ICEE’s and of course, fresh movie theater popcorn!
To ensure every precaution is met, Picture Show, in concert with the National Association of Theatre Owners and health officials has planned and executed an abundance of operational adjustments and safety measures including but not limited to; plexiglass barriers to reduce contact between team members and guests, enforcing and maintaining a six-foot physical distance in all areas of the theater including lobby and auditoriums marked with floor signage and safely spaced luxury recliner seating.
The Picture Show team of staff will continue to adhere to stringent cleaning and sanitizing protocols to mitigate and reduce touchpoints in high traffic areas, use personal protective equipment and hand washing on a frequent basis. Additionally, to reduce additional guest touchpoints, Picture Show will not accept cash during the first phase of reopening and encourages advance ticket purchases at pictureshowent.com.
