Malco to operate at half capacity amid coronavirus concerns

Coronavirus: Flattening the curve

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Malco Theaters is changing operations amid the coronavirus global pandemic.

The chain is working to sanitize their theaters by:

  • Increasing the deep cleaning frequency of all areas where patrons have direct contact to include kiosks, counters, restrooms, auditoriums, seats and handrails.
  • Re-educating all team members on protocols for proper hand washing and personal hygiene; asking employees to stay home when not feeling well.

Malco will also limit its auditoriums to a maximum of 50% capacity. They hope this will help movie goers practice social distancing.

They also hope anyone not feeling well avoids making a trip to the movies.
