According to an announcement made by Showplace Cinemas on Tuesday, all of the theater's locations will be open as of Friday, Aug. 28.

"We're officially reopening our doors this weekend," the statement from Showplace Cinemas says. "That's right, Friday, August 28, all locations are back open for business!"

Showplace Cinemas says its theaters will first reopen by playing some "classic favorites" through the weekend, with ticket prices for those movies set at $5 each.

Movie showtimes aren't available yet, but Showplace Cinemas says those will be posted soon - and will be twice daily Monday through Friday for evening shows. Additional shows will also be added on Saturday and Sunday in the afternoons.

Concession sales will be limited during this time with $5 popcorns, $5 fountain drinks, $4 candy options, and $4 bottle waters.
