COVID-19: The Club is unlikely to return to in-person screenings this fall as renewed Pandemic safety concerns have kept interest in moviegoing extremely limited. We do not believe we can operate successfully as theaters still have capacity limits, mask and vaccine policies, and other operational issues that would be too overwhelming to overcome at this time. We are considering virtual meetings and will communicate soon with members if we decide to give that a try. We will of course be paying close attention to the Delta variant, vaccine booster policies, and the number of COVID cases in our participating cities and hope to see better news in the months ahead. We will update our members as soon as there is a definite plan of action! Thanks for being patient and stay safe!
