COVID19, Monterey Cinemas Howick
We’re thrilled to announce that will be reopening on Saturday 16th May, we’ve missed you all so much! We’re excited to welcome you back into our cinemas this weekend – our session times will be published soon, so keep an eye out on our website for more announcements
Your safety is our top priority, so in line with the government’s regulations, we have strengthened our operations to ensure you have a safe movie-watching experience with us. These include:
-Enhanced theatre and facility cleaning
We will regularly be cleaning all surfaces in our cinema including the seats, tables, POS, bathrooms and handrail with hospital-grade sanitizer between each session.
All seats in our cinemas will ensure a minimum of 1 metre apart from other cinema patrons. You’ll notice when booking that 50% of our seats have been blocked out, but you will still be able to sit next to your friend. We’ve also marked out 2 metre blocks for queues in the foyer. Staff will be keeping a physical distance from each other during shifts as well.
-Free hand sanitizer
Hand sanitizer will be available in the foyer for all cinema patrons to use, free of charge.
-Staff hygiene measures
Staff will be sanitizing their hands regularly and wearing fresh gloves while serving food and beverages. We have asked that staff stay at home if they are unwell, and if they have or have been in contact with anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 they should seek medical advice and self-isolate.
The customer register will be on covidregister.nz through a QR code or on a sheet at the counter. This is to ensure any potential community outbreak can be tracked and retraced easily.
We would love to welcome you back when you’re ready to join us for a high-quality, safe movie-watching experience. We want to assure you that your safety is our main priority, and we will continually monitor and review the situation as needed. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
