After a long period of closure and extensive renovation work in the hall, the Lauterbach cinema will reopen its doors on Thursday, July 22nd.
LAUTERBACH – The Lauterbach cinema had grueling weeks behind it. It has been closed because of Corona since the beginning of November, it should have opened again on July 1st – but then water damage occurred, which required extensive renovation work in the hall. On Thursday, July 22nd, the first cinema blockbuster will be shown again after a long time in the cinema, and a big hit will follow on Sunday: the opening of the Bayreuth Festival will be broadcast live from 5.30 p.m. The audience can look forward to Richard Wagner’s opera “Der Fliegende Holländer”.
As Stefanie Dörr from the movie theater told our newspaper, a flush was broken in the ladies’ room in the cinema. “24 cubic meters of water poured into the hall,” she said. The carpets and the floorboards in the hall had been destroyed in a large part of the hall. In order to renew the floor covering, the chairs had to be removed. Now this repair is done, the cinema is not quite finished because two rows of chairs are still missing, “a game operation is already possible,” says Stefanie Dörr. The corona rules, which the movie theater will strictly adhere to, are also very important: To wear the mouth and nose protection (it can be removed at the seat), the safety distance of 1.50 meters and the registration, the conditions under which a visit to the cinema apply What is possible in the first place: Please bring a daily negative test or proof of vaccination or recovery with you … “and please be patient when you enter,” says Stefanie Dörr. Reservations are also requested. There are two options for doing this: our free cinema hotline at the Lichtspielhaus (0800 080 1010 – from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.) or by email to email@example.com (no later than one day before the desired performance).
“Once everyday cinema life has settled in, we want to offer on-site visits to the cinema for spontaneous cinema-goer tests,” says Stefanie Dörr. “As soon as that is possible, we will announce it.”
The opening film “It’s for your best” was actually planned for the November program and is now finally allowed to hit the big screen in Lauterbach. As promised, the cinema will hold the raffle among voucher buyers on Thursday. The lot decides who can enjoy an evening at the cinema (including popcorn + drink) with the recipient. Everyone who has purchased a cinema voucher for the Lauterbach cinema during the corona-related closure will take part in the raffle. “It is for your best” is a German “Feel-Good-Comedy”, among others with Heiner Lauterbach (FSK 12 years).
Reservations are also requested (by July 24th) for the live broadcast of the Bayreuth Festival – on Sunday, July 25th, at 5.30pm, with “Der Fliegende Holländer” (The Flying Dutchman). Admission costs 22 euros (reduced 20 euros). All opera and Wagner fans can enjoy a performance of the Bayreuth Festival in outstanding technical quality, as Stefanie Dörr promises.
