Bay Theatre Reopens for Summer

The Bay Theatre is back!

They’re reopening this weekend with a block of summer fun movies.

The Suttons Bay cinema will show classics like Jaws, E.T., Jurassic Park and more this weekend.

The community run theater has new COVID guidelines. Masks will be required and capacity is at 25%.

They have social distancing measures in place and they have grouped seats together in clusters so you can visit the theater with a small group.

The theater has been trying to get off the ground as a nonprofit and they’re excited to be back;

it’s just difficult to operate with everything going on right now.

“The fact is the studios have stopped producing or allowing us to get new releases. And that’s been the biggest thing,” said the theatre’s Larry Domine. “We’ve simply gone out and gotten older summer block buster movies and put together a package of films simply for now.”

The Summer Fun films are a repertory of successful movies:

“Jaws” – July 10, 11, 12

“E.T.”  – July 17, 18, 19

“Jurassic Park” – July 24, 25, 26

“Field of Dreams” – July 31, August 1, 2

“School of Rock” – August 7, 8, 9

The Bay Theatre will operate on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday this summer.

One showing each day: 7:30 pm Friday & Saturday, 4:30 pm Sunday.

All seats $3 for Summer Fun movies.

A COVID-19 Plan is in place to help keep customers and staff safe in the theatre.

State and local health guidelines require wearing masks and social distancing. The Bay Community Theatre will adhere to these guidelines.

Seating is limited to fifty people per showing.

Small group seating (2,3,4) will be available in the theatre on a first-come basis.
