Metropolitan Theatres Corporation announces the reopening of Camino Real Cinemas on Friday, March 26th and Fiesta 5 Theatres on Wednesday, March 31st.  The theatres are located at 7040 Marketplace Drive in Goleta and 916 State Street in Santa Barbara respectively.  Movie-goers will be welcomed back to the cinema just as blockbusters reemerge on the big screen with the likes of Godzilla vs Kong on March 31, Peter Rabbit 2 coming in May for families, and the highly anticipated Quiet Place 2 opening Memorial Day weekend. 

Tickets can be purchased beginning Tuesday, March 23rd at MetroTheatres.com or on the Metropolitan Theatres mobile app which is available for free download on iTunes or Google Play. 

Private Rentals of new theatrical releases will be available at both theatres for up to 20 guests and can be booked online. To schedule a private screening, guests can visit www.MetroTheatres.com/your-private-screening or the Metropolitan Theatres mobile app and select the “Your Private Screening” option from the featured movies listings.  More information can be found at www.MetroTheatres.com.

The theatres will reopen in accordance with local mandates and will offer enhanced cleanliness, sanitizing, and safety measures at every step of the movie-going experience.

The theatres continue to keep the highest standards of safety, physical distancing, cleanliness, and sanitization for the well-being of guests and employees.   In addition, employees were trained prior to reopening on proper safety protocols and will wear required personal protective equipment (PPE) while working, in addition to completing a wellness check-in prior to each shift.

Metropolitan Theatres Corporation’s safety protocols are highlighted below, outlined in this video and detailed on the Metropolitan Theatres website.

  • Auditoriums will be disinfected between showtimes.
  • Theatres will have reduced capacities to maximize physical distancing.
  • All showtimes offer reserved seating with social distancing technology that will automatically block seats adjacent to a party upon ticket purchase.
  • Face masks will be mandatory for all guests within the theatre and may only be removed for eating and drinking while in the auditoriums. Face masks and gloves will be required for all employees.
  • All public and high-contact touch points will be disinfected frequently.
  • Sanitization stations are placed throughout the theatre for customer use.
  • Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets online or on our new Metropolitan Theatres mobile app allowing for contactless payment methods to provide a more contact-free experience.

Additionally, Metropolitan Theatres has aligned with CinemaSafe.org, developed by the National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO), to voluntarily follow a set of health and safety protocols developed by a team of industry experts based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Metropolitan Theatres Announce Reopening of Camino Real Cinemas and Fiesta 5 Theatres

CDC case data for Texas, starting with March 2, when they opened the floodgates, to today:

Texas, cases per 100K over previous 7 day period. March 2, March 16, March 26:
26.3 to 109.4 to 83

Texas, cases per 100K cumulative for pandemic. March 2, March 16, March 26:
9132 to 9384 to 9518

No matter how you slice it those are increases. Perhaps you should stop relying on biased social media sites.

Post the link! Because every site I see has Texas (as well as most states other than Michigan, Missouri and a handful of east coast states) trending down. As per the google COVID tracker Texas had a 7 day average of:

March 2 - 7259
March 16 - 4707
March 25 - 3683

If you will read the comment you are allegedly responding to, you will see that the 7-day adjusted rate per 100 K has indeed gone down since the 16th as of today, but is still much higher than it was on March 2. Does that not mean increase to you?

Of course the cumulative rate goes up, but take a gander at the rate at which the rate goes up, and its absolute value per 100K.

Just go to the CDC US Status page for cases and deaths, and click on the state you desire:

I was mistaken on cumulative rate. It's the rate, amortized over the whole pandemic, not a total. If the current rates trend down, so too will the cumulative rate, just more slowly. If the pandemic disappeared today, that cumulative rate would trend toward zero as time went on. The fact that it's increasing shows that the daily/weekly rates are increasing.

The CDC data are as stated.

Texas, cases per 100K over previous 7 day period. March 2, March 16, March 26:
26.3 to 109.4 to 83

Case rates are trending down now, but are still well above the rate on the day they opened up, March 2.

Just go to the CDC US Status page for cases and deaths, and click on the state you desire:

AHHHHH...I see your mistake! The DAILY case number per 100k on March 2nd was 24.2. You then switched to WEEKLY totals for March 16 and March 26. So yes...the weekly total for March 16 and March 26 ARE HIGHER than the single day average of March 2. But...yeah...the case rate has literally gone straight down since late February! Don't take it personally...data mix-ups happen to the best of us! The daily CDC chart for Texas is:

There is a more comprehensive report on Zerohedge (based in Bulgaria) on the MediaBiasFactCheck page, but here's the quick summary:

"Overall, we rate ZeroHedge an extreme right-biased conspiracy website based on the promotion of false/misleading/debunked information that routinely denigrates the left."

Perhaps... but there is an anonymous user on here who has been posting erroneous numbers about Texas all month. They literally started with the daily rate in Texas and then there next two data points were weekly total rates to try and show things were going way up... when... obviously... as per every site and the early morning referenced cdc data... Texas is going quickly down. It was possibly an honest mistake... but it was used and repeated at least a half a dozen times. The fact is, the numbers in Texas have gone straight down since late February. That is a fact.

Also, you probably do (or obviously should) realize that mediabiasfactcheck.com literally is the definition of biased media. It’s founders sole qualification for rating anything is a communication degree...

The Poynter Institute notes, "Media Bias/Fact Check is a widely cited source for news stories and even studies about misinformation, despite the fact that its method is in no way scientific."

Clever website name though... but that’s basically the extent of its credibility... it’s name. So yeah... cite it to disprove potentially another worthless article. The point is though, the cdc data you cited was fabricated... or at best copy ad pasted wrong as the Texas numbers have gone down since late February... literally proving your entire months thoughts on Texas wrong. I just really want to know if you did it on purpose or just screwed up the data and really thought you were right...
