The long-anticipated reopening of the Village Theatre is set for Friday, Oct. 8, with the screening of the new James Bond movie “No Time to Die.” The City is pleased that Coronado’s beloved movie theater which has been closed since last year due to public health restrictions, will be finally screening films again.
The theater was set to reopen in August, however, shipping delays for new seats resulted in the continued closure. The seats will hopefully arrive prior to the end of 2021. The Village Theatre will initially open the main auditorium only with a decision on the two screening rooms pending. The 1940s-era theater underwent an extensive renovation more than a decade ago after it fell into a bad state of disrepair. The City got involved and together with Vintage Cinemas reopened the theater on June 24, 2011.
When the new seats finally arrive, the installation may require the theatre to have a modified program schedule temporarily.
