Cinemas welcome back big-screen fun
It is good news for movie buffs now Busselton’s Orana Cinemas has reopened its doors to the community.
The cinema opened to the public on Saturday and is featuring more than 10 movies on a rotational basis.
Manager Leanne Ashby said while the business was operating under modified hours each day, it was wonderful being open to the public.
“We’re looking forward to more people coming through these doors,” she said.
“People have been coming from far and wide, including Australind and Eaton.”
Part of the reason people have been making the trek to the cinema is because of the $5 tickets.
“This is what the owners decided to do,” Ms Ashby said.
“We’ll be doing it through the school holidays too.”
The cinema is open on Friday nights, Saturday afternoons and evenings, Sunday after-noons and 11am and 1.30pm viewings on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
“For now, we’re staying closed on Mondays and Thursdays,” Ms Ashby said. “Being able to get back to some kind of normal is great.”
Ms Ashby also thanked customers for their acceptance of some of the changes within the theatres.
In an effort to abide by COVID-19 safety restrictions, the cinema has blocked off some seats in theatres to apply the 1.5m-spacing rule.
