Star Cinema Grill announced June 4 plans to reopen all locations over the next several weeks. Theaters will be showing classic movies for $5 per ticket, according to a press release.

The company’s Baybrook location opened May 8 at 702 Baybrook Mall Drive, Friendswood. The remaining opening dates are as follows:

  • June 5: 8920 Fry Road, Cypress

  • June 12: 22125 FM 1093, Richmond

  • June 19: 1495 Lake Plaza Drive, Spring, and 4811 Hwy. 6, Missouri City

  • June 26: 2000 I-45 N., Conroe

  • July 3: 114 Vintage Park Blvd., Bldg. H, Ste. J, Houston

  • July 10: 1037 University Drive, College Station

“Since we opened our Baybrook location several weeks ago, guest reaction has been great, and we feel ready to open the rest of our theaters as quickly and safely as possible,” Vice President John Walsh said in a press release. “We have the advantage of lessons learned being one of the first theaters in the country to reopen, and our guests are going to reap those benefits as we open the rest of our locations.”

Several health and safety measures are in place at all locations, including ticket purchases being made in Star Cinema Grill’s app rather than interacting with employees at the box office. Capacity is currently limited to 25%, maintaining a minimum of two seats spacing in between parties.

Servers will take orders tableside with masks and provide single-use menus, flatware and drinkware. Theaters are sanitized between showings, and staff members are screened before each shift, officials said.

For groups that are not yet ready to be among the public or are looking for a more private experience, theater rentals are available for four to 40 guests.

During the reopening, every 100th ticket purchased each weekend will win a $250 gift card through July 13. Learn more about reopening plans here.
