I'll try to collect and share theater info about their return to business as it becomes available. I've noted each of the theaters and will note their planned opening date and links to any additional information they provide.

Marin County moved to the "Orange Tier" on 3/23/2021, Napa County to the "Red Tier" on 3/2, Sonoma County to the "Orange Tier"on 3/23. Movie theaters can reopen to 25% capacity once again, and Marin has removed the restriction on concession sales - reverting to the State's guidance. 4 Marin theaters are open - Northgate, Rafael, Regency and Rowland. Napa's Century theater is open.

One has to wonder how our elected officials can tie the ability of businesses to operate to availability of ICU beds for which they've never enumerated the number deemed essential per 100K citizens. Hospitals have been closing or consolidating for years, but no leaders have felt a threat to the public in case of a disaster or pandemic?

For reference here's the State's Guidance (is guidance a requirement?) for Movie Theaters.
Industry Guidance: Movie Theaters and Family Entertainment Centers

The National Association of Theatre Owners and 310 companies representing over 30,000 screens nationwide have come together to commit to implementing expert-backed industry-specific health and safety protocols. Many of the North Bay theaters are included in that group. Click here to see the protocols and theater commitments

Don't even think about attending a theater if you aren't wearing a mask.

Some of the theaters have added reserved seating to ensure social distancing. You'd be wise to buy tickets in advance to ensure you're able to be seated if your local theater is open. Remember, the State's guidance allows only 25% of the seats (up to 100) in any auditorium, and a county may be even more restrictive.
