We will be open tonight (December 18th) from 5pm-7pm for “concessions to go”! Swing by to stock up on popcorn, candy, drinks, collectible glasses, posters and gift cards! Don’t forget to place your order in advance for our special “hunker down” popcorn!
We’ve added some extra days next week to give folks a chance to stock up on treats and merchandise for the movie fans on your “nice list” this year! We will be open on December 23rd from 4pm-7pm with a full concession lineup, and on Christmas Eve day from 10am-2pm for gift cards and other merch (no popcorn sales)!
We’ve heard that Santa and his reindeer LOVE popcorn, so it’s the perfect thing to leave out Christmas eve! It’s much healthier than cookies!
While you are busy trimming the tree or prepping Christmas Eve dinner, why not tune in from 4pm-6pm to stream this year’s virtual edition of A RADIO CHRISTMAS CAROL by Re-Imagined Radio? Listen in on99.9FM, 91.1FM, 1310AM, or on the web at KXRW.FM or XRAY.FM!
For those of you looking for unique gifts for the movie lover in your life, we have another edition of our BIG MOVIE TRAILER SALE! We just added H-J today!
Have a great weekend everyone, and we hope we will see you for a movie (on our big screen) in early 2021!
We were just getting into the swing of things presenting movies back on the big screen when yesterday’s new closure mandate was announced by Governor Inslee. We’re as disappointed as you are, but we hope to have images flickering on our big screen again as soon as possible. At this point the earliest will be December 14th.
The next month is going to be especially difficult for the Kiggins as we enter the holiday season. If you want to help keep the Kiggins afloat, please continue renting films in our
Virtual Screening Room, stop by on Friday’s from 5pm-8pm for “concessions to go” and stock up on gift cards (they make AWESOME holiday gifts for the movie fan in your life) available either in person or via our website.
We also rent out our marquee for special messages if you are looking for a unique way to wish people Happy Holidays, and intimate private party rentals are still available!
Starting this Friday the Kiggins is back in the business of showing movies on the BIG SCREEN! It has been a long seven months (to the day this Friday) and we have missed you!
As of last week, we have been okayed by the Governor to reopen to the public at 25% capacity as long as a strict set of guidelines are met. The health and safety of our customers and staff is our highest priority, so here’s our plan:
Currently tickets are ONLY available by advance reserved purchase through our website. If you show up without a ticket already purchased you will be turned away! Of course, you can use your smartphone and do it on the spot as we won’t require you to print your ticket. This allows you to pick your favorite seats in advance and still allow us to create the required safe social distancing.
When guests arrive they will first check in at our box-office. We will then have two separate lines, one for folks wanting to purchase concessions, and one express lane that will allow guests to go straight to the auditorium and take their seats.
Masks are required at all times while moving about the Kiggins! If you have purchased concession items we ask that you keep your masks on whenever you aren’t actively eating or drinking. Forgot your mask? We have disposable ones for sale at the box-office. If you need to use the restroom or want to grab more concessions, please put your mask back on before leaving your seat. Hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the theater.
Speaking of restrooms, we will be cleaning and sanitizing them every thirty minutes, along with all door handles, railings and public fixtures.
When guests arrive at their seats they will find that cloth seat covers have been placed over their seats giving an added level protection. After the movie, just leave them on your seats and between shows we will gather them for washing at which time that seat will be sanitized throughly.
Once the movie ends we ask that guests, whenever possible, use the interior auditorium exits directly out of the auditorium. We have built in at least one hour between shows so we can make sure the theater is clean, but we don’t want to keep our next guests waiting!
If 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY’s Frank Poole and Dave Bowman had only been wearing their masks, HAL 2000 would not have been able to read their lips to see that they were questioning his competence.
Wear a mask. Save lives.
Bummed as much as we are that your summer travel plans had to be cancelled due to COVID-19? As I write this, I should be in London visiting my daughter who should be there studying this summer.
But never fear! The Kiggins continues to bring the best of world cinema straight to your living room! And next Friday, August 21st we have something special, the thoroughly charming THE AUGUST VIRGIN from up-and-coming Spanish filmmaker Jonás Trueba’s. If you are fan of the works of French master Éric Rohmer or Richard Linklater’s BEFORE trilogy, you will welcome this love letter to Madrid and affairs of the heart! You may not be able to leave the States, but you will feel like you spent a hot summer in Spain.
Pre-sale tickets are available now. Trust me, this is one of my favorite films of the year!
And mark your calendars for a very special live Q&A!
Watch the film and then join us on August 22nd or August 29th for a Film-maker Q&A which will feature a conversation about the making of THE AUGUST VIRGIN with moderator Robert Rosenberg and the film’s director & co-writer Jonas Trueba and lead actress & co-writer, Itsaso Arana!
