IPIC in Pike & Rose Shares Tentative Reopening Date of May 21
After being closed for over a year due to the pandemic, an assistant general manager at IPIC shared with us that the luxury theater plans to reopen towards the end of this month.
Movie goers can expect some small changes to the IPIC experience. Temperatures will be taken at the door, seats in the theater will be 6 feet apart, and capacity will be reduced.
Pillows will no longer be offered, but blankets will still be available upon request. (We were told that the ticket prices will be adjusted to reflect this change.)
For a look at what a typical evening at IPIC was like before the pandemic hit, check out our post that we wrote a while back.
More information about IPIC can be found here.
Additionally, IPIC and their associated restaurant City Perch are both hiring right now. If you’re interested, you can check out their job listings here.

Regal Announces Opening Dates for MoCo Theaters
Movie theaters in Montgomery County have been closed since mid-March of 2020, except for AMC Theatres which opened this past week.
Regal Theaters have announced reopening dates for their theaters across the county. Among the reopening theatres are all three MoCo locations (Germantown, Rockville, and Silver Spring), but they won’t all be opening at the same time.
The Germantown location will open on Friday, May 7th. The Rockville and Silver Spring locations will be opening two weeks later, on Friday, May 21st.
As of now, Montgomery County does not allow food or drinks to be consumed in movie theaters.

AMC Theatres in Gaithersburg and Wheaton to Reopen
AMC Theatres in Montgomery County have been closed for a year. On their website, they’ve announced that theatres in MoCo will be reopening on Friday, March 26th.
They will be reopening with AMC safe & clean policies, but further restrictions remain in effect that do not allow food and drink in MoCo theatres.
We expect other theatres in the county to follow suit, but with the shift many theatres took prior to the pandemic, focusing on offering more food and drink during movies, some may choose to wait until the further restrictions are lifted.
