Sunnyside Theater: Friday Is Movie Day!
Earlier this week, I told you how the The Grand Cinemas Yakima Valley was finally prepping the popcorn to be back in business! They had opened back up last October after being shut down in March 2020 because of the pandemic. Back then, (4 months ago) we felt things were getting back to normal. We could go back to see movies on the BIG SCREEN! Well, that love & hope was short lived with the theater having to re-close it's doors on Monday November 16th. I'm happy to say it's official, the movie theater in Sunnyside will be back open THIS FRIDAY!
Now that our region has entered into Phase 2, it was only a matter of time before they opened back up. Well, I must admit, with The Orion announcing they'd be open, but not hearing much of anything from our lower valley theater, i was getting nervous. Thanks to their reader board, website & twitter... it's official for a re-open on Friday, February 26th!
According to the theater's website, the features on the big screen will be a mix of action, drama and family films. Wonder Woman 1984, The Little Things, Tom & Jerry, Monster Hunter, The Croods: The New Age, & The Marksman! With many businesses not being able to re-open their doors, I was scared, and can honestly say, seeing those lights on as I drove past Sunnyside's Exit 69 on I82... they looked so beautiful!
