a/perture cinema Announcement Concerning COVID-19
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (MARCH 13, 2020) In our desire to do everything we can to keep our community healthy, a/perture cinema will be closing today Friday, March 13 through at least April 3 and until we know that it is safe to gather audiences together for the art of film. All scheduled special event programming and regular film screenings during this time is now canceled or postponed. This decision has been reached after much deliberation and in acknowledgement of a/perture cinema’s place as a community destination for film.
Despite having recently implemented increased sanitation and other precautionary measures, a/perture believes the best course of action at this time is a temporary closure. By voluntarily closing at least into April, a/perture cinema is prioritizing the health and safety of customers, staff, and the community at large, including vulnerable populations.
Public support is especially appreciated during this time and will help a/perture to reopen with minimal disruption as soon as it is acceptable to do so – memberships and financial donations will still be accepted.
a/perture cinema appreciates the community’s understanding and patience during this unprecedented time. a/perture looks forward to resuming business and welcoming customers back to the cinema upon reopening. In the meantime, please visit the a/perture cinema website for updates regarding rescheduled special events and films (aperturecinema.com) and follow us on facebook and Instagram (@aperturecinema) to stay connected with us while we are physically closed.
