Movie theatres are a place to go and put reality in the back seat. As of March 17, Allen County residents no longer have that luxury. B&B Sterling Six Cinema has turned off its screen projectors for the time being due to COVID-19.  

Theater manager Nic Olson was not surprised by the Bagby family’s decision to close its 50 movie theaters across seven states. 

“Having a movie theater, which is a place where ideally hundreds of people are together in one small room, is going to be a place that gets closed down,” Olson said.
