There are two things I miss more than anything right now, going to concerts and going to the movies. Those are two things I used to do a lot prior to this freaking coronavirus pandemic.

Unfortunately, the return of concerts is still a big unknown at the moment, but there is a least little good news for moviegoers likes me.

According to MLive, Goodrich Quality Theaters has announced it will reopen 12 Michigan locations at the end of the month.

If you remember, the company behind the movie chain had declared bankruptcy back in February and then the coronavirus came along which only made matters worse.

Apparently they were recently purchased by a New York management and realty group. They now have plans to reopen on July 31st unless restrictions from the state prevent them from doing so.

Here's a list of Goodrich Quality Theaters that plan on reopening.

  • Ada-Lowell, MI (Ada-Lowell 5)
  • Ann Arbor, MI (Quality 16)
  • Battle Creek, MI (West Columbia 7)
  • Bay City, MI
  • Cadillac, MI (Cadillac 4)
  • Hastings, MI (Hastings 4)
  • Holland, MI (Holland 7)
  • Jackson, MI (Jackson 10)
  • Kalamazoo, MI (Kalamazoo 10)
  • Oxford, MI (Oxford 7)
  • Port Huron, MI
  • Three Rivers, MI (Three Rivers 6)

It doesn't really give those of us that live in Genesee County a lot of options unless you're willing to drive a bit.

For me personally, I go to the NCG Theater in Grand Blanc but have yet to hear when they will reopen. According, to their website, Grand Blanc, Lansing, Lapeer, Midland and Owosso theaters will be opening soon but no specific date is listed.

I doubt I'd even go to a  movie theater at this point, more than likely I'll wait until things start looking a little better.
