Movie Theaters Are at Risk of Closing for Good!

The COVID-19 pandemic has put movie theaters across the country at risk of going dark for good. From small independent screens to nationwide exhibitors, our local theaters employ over 150,000 people and have formed a cornerstone of the American experience for generations. Without swift action from Congress our favorite theaters could close forever, depriving audiences of the magic of movies for years to come.

Our friends at Rialto Cinemas, the people who own and operate the Cerrito Theater, are asking the public to sign an on-line petition in support of the RESTART act. This bill would extend much needed aid to movie theaters across the country. To read about and sign the petition, just click here.

Please consider signing this petition. We really do want to keep our local cinema going.
