Kamloops Film Society closes Paramount Theatre due to pandemic

The decision follows the provincial directive for public gatherings to be capped at 50 people. Society said public events will not be held there until circumstances improve

Following the revised government restriction on the number of people who can gather at one time — down to 50 from 250 — the Kamloops Film Society has closed the Paramount Theatre for public events until circumstances improve.

“During this time, all volunteer shifts will be cancelled and we will be having staff conduct cleaning, maintenance, marketing, stocking, operations and other activities so as to cover the hours they would have otherwise worked,” film society executive director Dusan Magdolen said in a statement.

“As the situation continues to evolve, we may be changing our approach, but we will continue to do our best to take care of all Kamloops Film Society employees during this difficult time.”
