Late last month, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced lifted restrictions on indoor entertainment venues including movie theaters, performance venues and bowling centers. 

For theaters, the order allows seating at 20 percent capacity with a maximum of 500 people for larger venues. Restrictions will be placed on other indoor entertainment venues, as well. Local businesses must follow guidelines to be able to open to the public.

This is exciting news for Flint & Genesee visitors and locals especially with colder weather moving in. With venues such as the Capitol Theatre, the Whiting and the Machine Shop able to open in the not too distant future, world-class theater and exciting concerts are on the horizon.
