Films: In response to Tribune critic Michael Phillips, it doesn’t matter what reopening rules permit, Chicago-area film theaters plan no fast shift to 100% capability. For now, the nation’s largest chain, AMC Theatres, is sticking with its coverage of “seat blocking,” which implies while you order a ticket on-line, the seat to your left and to your proper is mechanically not on the market. That places AMC’s self-imposed capability nicely beneath 50 %. Native establishments are making changes, however cautiously. In Lakeview, the Music Field Theatre is one in all many Chicago venues that includes the movie model of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway musical “Within the Heights.” As of Wednesday, stated common supervisor Ryan Oestreich, the theater had pre-sold 1,100 tickets for its two-week run. “That’s big,” he stated — the most effective presale since February 2020 and the Music Field’s 70 Millimeter Movie Pageant. The bigger, 750-seat Music Field auditorium will proceed with a 250-person cap and its present masks coverage (i.e., put on one till you’re at your seat and going at your popcorn) via June 25. After that, Oestreich stated, it’s mask-optional for these totally vaccinated.
