While the current closure order from Governor Baker is set to expire April 6, 2020, it is uncertain at this time when Tower Theaters will deem it safe to reopen to the community.
At this time, our utmost concern is the well-being of our community and reducing strain our local health care system. In the meantime, we are following updates from the CDC on Interim Guidance for Businesses and Employers to Plan and Respond to Coronavirus Disease
Check back regularly for updates. Once a safe re-opening date is determined by State and Local officials, we’ll post it here.
Effective Tuesday, March 17, Tower Theaters will close until at least April 6, 2020, based on Governor Baker’s order. After continued monitoring of top scientific and industry leaders, and in conjunction with Governor Baker’s restriction on the sale of food served on premises, we have come to this difficult decision. Although we could continue to sell up to 25 tickets per show, with studios taking up to 70% of ticket sales, our ability to operate, even with minimal attendance, is dependent on concession sales.
We are invested in helping our community through this difficult time and want to do our part to help see everyone though safely. Our thirty years in business is due to the loyalty of our customers, and we sincerely appreciate, and wish the best for, every one of you.
