WILLIAMSBURG-Both movie theatres in the Williamsburg area are expected to reopen for business in April.

High Street’s Movie Tavern is planning a reopening on April 2. Face masks will be required except while eating and drinking. Social distancing will also be in place. Patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets online in advance.

Movie Tavern reopened for a short period of time a few months ago but closed again due to the limited number of theatrical releases as a result of the covid-19 pandemic.

Regal also announced plans to reopen its theatres nationwide beginning April 2. An official date for reopening has not been scheduled yet for the Regal Cinema located in New Town.

AMC theatres, meanwhile, have been open since last summer including the AMC location in Hampton.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
