Multiple movie times are available per day, including two midnight showings for horror movie lovers ready for a late-night scare. On Halloween day, Movies on Broad is offering a five-movie marathon from noon to midnight (each showing ticketed separately).

Guests will be seated in blocks of two, four or six spread out widely across the arena to allow for social distance measures as well as extra room for comfort. The overall capacity of the arena will stay well within the city’s recent recommended guidelines for an indoor facility. A limited number of Wells Fargo Center suites will also be available for purchase for a group of up to six people per suite. Each of these luxury spaces comes complete with a private bathroom, TV, and special food and beverage options available for pre-order.

Safety protocols will be in place. In accordance with city guidelines, all patrons attending Movies on Broad will be required to wear a mask at all times except while eating and drinking from their seats. Social distancing practices will be facilitated by the event layout and on-site staff.

In partnership with NBCUniversal, Movies on Broad will tap into Universal Pictures’ iconic library of films, including popular thrillers such as “Bride of Chucky” and 2018’s “Halloween.” Additionally, family favorites such as “Casper” and “Back to the Future” are slated to show in celebration of their respective 25th and 35th release anniversaries. The schedule also includes two themed double features.
