An Update from YES Cinema - Planning to Reopen July 4th Weekend!
Are you ready for YES Cinema to reopen? The new and improved YES Cinema, that is! We certainly hope so because we are now beginning to have some serious dialogue around all things related to the Cinema’s reopening! We’ve missed each and everyone one of you!
So, what’s new and improved you ask? YES Cinema has brand new sinks and counter tops in the Men’s and Ladies restrooms and they look fabulous!
The theatre also now has large face guards installed in the concessions, bar, and café areas. Obviously, this is being done for you (and our staff) continued safety. Additionally, some wonderful volunteers have made cloth masks for staff to wear during shifts. Hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies are being restocked as well.
What’s coming up you ask? This week there will be a meeting with the Managers to begin discussions on reopening the theater. We’ve also invited Triflix owner, Tristan Watkins, to join in. Triflix is now our YES Cinema advertising partner. There is also an all-staff meeting scheduled in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned for more information and SEE YOU ALL SOON!
Has the Current State of the World Left You a Little...UNHINGED?
YES Cinema comes back with a bang! Some film had to go first. Filming for UNHINGED took place in summer 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana, wrapping in August. Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe stars as "The Man," in a a psychological thriller that takes something we've all experienced--road rage--to an unpredictable and terrifying conclusion. Rachel (Caren Pistorius) is running late getting to work when she crosses paths with a stranger (Crowe) at a traffic light. Soon, Rachel finds herself and everyone she loves the target of a man who feels invisible and is looking to make one last mark upon the world by teaching her a series of deadly lessons. What follows is a dangerous game of cat and mouse that proves you never know who you're driving next to. There will be car crashes. Rated R for strong violent content, and language throughout.

#ColumbusCares - Show Your Support!
In partnership with Quick Signs, the Lincoln Central Neighborhood Family Center (LCNFC) and YES Cinema are providing an opportunity for you to show your support to essential care givers and all essential personnel who are giving so much during the COVID-19 pandemic.
LCNFC and YES Cinema in collaboration with Paul Wendell of Quick Signs is providing an opportunity for you to show your support of all our essential personnel who are currently working diligently on behalf of our community during these uncertain and chaotic times. Currently, there is a national movement called Show Your Heart or Hearts for Health Care Workers. However, we have taken this initiative one step further by including all medical professionals and essential personnel helping Columbus and Bartholomew County residents.
The LCNFC and YES Cinema are processing heart sign orders and delivering them straight to your homes. Proceeds from these “special” hearts will be used to provide income for YES Cinema’s 18 part-time employees and to supplement lost income caused by the Coronavirus shutdown. The loss of ticket sales and concessions, special events, and on-screen advertising has really taken its toll, placing YES Cinema in a precarious situation. In addition, numerous concessions products have had to be purged. We hope to generate lost revenue through the sale of “#columbuscares” signs, featuring a Big Red (thank-you) Heart. It is our hope the sale of these hearts will help YES Cinema remain a key downtown destination. We are now taking orders and hope you will support our efforts by purchasing one (or more) of our signs for $15.00 each. You can order yours by following the link below.
These special signs @ $15.00 each can be your way of saying “THANK YOU” to all the wonderful folks working so hard during this time to help Bartholomew County’s most vulnerable citizens while at the same time supporting the YES Cinema and its mission with the Lincoln Central Neighborhood Family Center.
For your convenience and to maintain social distancing, your sign will be placed in your yard by volunteers from the Columbus Newcomers Club — typically within a week. Please stay inside your home or at least 6 feet away from the individual who delivers your sign!
I Want My Sign!
Thanks to you, too
Disney's Live Action MULAN Coming to YES in July!
How do you solve a problem like Maria? Er, Hua Mulan, we mean - the eldest daughter of an honored warrior. Well, you let her take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation...and a proud father.
A QUIET PLACE II - Coming to YES Cinema this Fall
Following the deadly events in the first film, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path. Co-starring Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou, and directed by John Krasinski (that's Mr. Blunt to you).
Don't go in the water...never get off the boat...and don't utter a sound.
