If you’ve been among the reluctant fans waiting to see the latest Spider-Man movie in public because of the coronavirus, a Central Kentucky theater has a new option: Vaccination-required shows.
Movie Tavern in Brannon Crossing announced that beginning Jan. 21 the theater in Nicholasville will offer vaccine-required shows for two movies daily.
“At Marcus Theatres we offer choices. A choice in movies, snacks, seats and auditorium type. And at select locations, there is an additional choice currently available,” the theater company said on its web site. “For those interested, we will offer an afternoon and evening showtime for select movies in which vaccination is required. Guests attending these shows will be asked to present a vaccination card or a photo of the card and a photo ID. There will continue to be regular showtimes for these movies as well.”
Each showing will be clearly marked “VAX REQUIRED” in the listings. Patrons, including all children, will need to show a vaccination card or a photo of a card to attend these showings. Negative COVID tests will not suffice, according to a news release.
Only fully vaccinated guests will be allowed to attend these showings, which means those two weeks past their second Pfizer or Moderna shot or two weeks past their J&J shot, according to Marcus Theatres. Boosters are not required at this time.
Children who are too young to be vaccinated will not be allowed to attend these showings, the company said.
Showtimes for the movies will be listed on the Jessamine County theater’s website and Marcus Theatres app.
This week’s vaccine-required shows at Brannon Crossing Movie Tavern will be “Scream” and “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” Movies not marked VAX REQUIRED are open to any patrons.
