Movies are returning to St. Anthony Main Theatre next month

The MSP Film Society and big studio flicks will return to the screens.

Movies are returning to the screens at St. Anthony Main Theatre in Minneapolis on July 1. 

The movie theater, which closed at the start of the pandemic and reopened briefly only to close again due to the continued delay of new movies being released, will reopen after about a year.

The MSP Film Society says it'll be returning to in-person screenings at St. Anthony Main Theatre in July with expanded year-round programing at the theater (it'll play movies on two screens instead of just one). 

The film society will kick off the summer of movies with Summer of 85 and Summer of Soul.

The lineup will also include Roadrunner: A film about Anthony Bourdain, by Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville. The film is a bio-doc of the late chef and will open on Friday, July 16. 

Ammonite, starring Kate Winslet, will screen on July 12 as part of the film society's Science on Screen series, which will include a pre-screening discussion with Science Museum of Minnesota’s Paleontology curator Dr. Alex Hastings.

And on July 25, the popular Cat Video Fest will return for a "limited engagement."

Both screening rooms at St. Anthony Main will be limited to 75% capacity, with the film society noting it's committed to the health and safety of moviegoers. 

Non-film society movies will also start playing at the five-screen St. Anthony Main Theatre on July 1 as movie studios release new films as COVID restrictions ease. Among the first to screen at St. Anthony Main: F9 The Fast Saga, A Quiet Place Part II and The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, which wall begin July 1, and Black Widow on July 8.
