OCALA, Fla. (August 21, 2020) – Following several pre-opening events at the end of August, Ocala’s historic Marion Theatre will resume normal operations beginning Thursday, September 10, 2020.

The Marion Theatre’s new standard film schedule will be as follows:
Thursday: 2PM and 7PM
Friday and Saturday: 11AM, 2PM and 7PM
Sunday: 11AM and 2PM.

Due to current guidelines restricting the operation of theatre, the Marion will operate at a safe and extremely reduced capacity. The venue, which traditionally holds around 300 guests, will be limited to no more than 60 guests per film/event. Guests will be seated by group/family and distanced in accordance to state guidelines.  During this time tickets to the Marion Theatre will be sold as general admission. After COVID-19 related restrictions are eased, the Marion will offer select-a-seat experiences for all patrons.

The Marion’s concession offerings have also been re-imaged with a full bar that includes liquor, beer and wine. Mobile ordering and delivery will be available to your theatre to reduce congestion in the lobby for all food and drink items.
