The Angelika Film Center at Mockingbird Station will welcome back moviegoers Friday after being closed for about five months because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Guests and staff will be required to wear masks, and auditorium seating will be limited to ensure 6 feet of distance between patrons. All seats and tray tables will be sanitized after each use.

The cinema has adopted a wide range of health and safety protocols, including upgraded filters in the HVAC system to improve air quality, floor decals to space out guests, acrylic barriers at the concession stand and restricted access to water fountains, vending machines and arcade games.

The opening comes just days before Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated “Tenet” debuts Sept. 3. The Angelika will show two early screenings of the film each day beginning Aug. 31.

“The Personal History of David Copperfield,” “The Eight Hundred” and the 10th anniversary edition of “Inception” will also be shown opening week.

Customers are encouraged to buy tickets online and arrive no more than 30 minutes prior to the movie to limit overall occupancy.
