After a long wait, Okanagan film enthusiasts can head back to the theatres.

A number of movie theatres across the Okanagan are scheduled to reopen on Tuesday, June 15.

Landmark Cinema announced on their website that Kelowna’s Grand 10 location, West Kelowna’s Xtreme location and Landmark Cinemas Penticton will be returning for showings.

Cineplex Cinemas also revealed that Kelowna’s Orchard Plaza location and Vernon’s Galaxy Cinemas are opening as well.

Among the list of viewings at Landmark theatres includes Godzilla vs. Kong, Cruella, Raya and the Last Dragon, A Quiet Place: Part 2, and more.

Additionally, Landmark Cinema’s movie theatre popcorn and treats will be available for delivery or pick up through Skip The Dishes and DoorDash.
