Some Capital Region movie theaters started reopening for business Friday, but changes are in place.

NewsChannel 13 visited Regal Cinemas in Colonie Center to see how it was going.

There are some big changes you'll notice as soon as you walk in. For starters, hand sanitizer locations are scattered throughout the theaters and lobby areas.

Masks are necessary for employees and patrons.

There will be staff monitoring to make sure people are following the rules inside the theater. People are allowed to take their masks off when they are eating or drinking.

State guidelines right now are no more than 25% capacity and no more than 50 people total per screen.

They have four newer movies they're screening as well as some older titles.

Hear from excited moviegoers and a manager about how it's going so far by watching the video of Jacquie Slater's story.
