And while many big theater chains are waiting, Enzian Theater, Central Florida’s arthouse theater plans to reopen June 12.

The theater adheres to the CDC recommendations by implementing a number of security measures.

“Our comfortable seats that you all have come to love will be physically remote to ensure your safety,” said the Enzian in a press release.

The theater will also run at 50 percent capacity.

As for showtimes and which films will be shown, the Enzian said it is still finalizing those details and sharing more next week.

Shortly after the theater closed in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic, it began to release indie films through its Enzian on Demand maintenance. Part of the proceeds from the movie rental went to the theater.

Enzian’s outdoor restaurant, Eden Bar, reopened weeks ago and is open daily from 11am to 10pm.

While other theaters closed their doors, some Florida drive-in theaters remained open, including the Ocala Drive-In.
