I hope you’re all feeling OK today. We’ve decided not to wait until Washington acts to announce the nationwide shut-down we all know is urgently needed to beat back COVID-19. We are, immediately, closing the State and Bijou theaters in Traverse City. The absolute best way to prevent contracting the virus or giving it to someone else is to fully limit our contact with other people. A movie theater, by its nature, is about coming together with other people to enjoy a film. For now, watching movies will have to be done at home.
