As San Mateo and Marin counties moved to the state's less restrictive red tier for COVID-19 reopening this week, Cinemark has announced movie theaters in those counties will open again, with certain restrictions.

The theaters that will reopen are: Century Northgate (San Rafael), Redwood Downtown 20 and XD (Redwood City) and Century at Tanforan and XD (San Bruno). Showtimes will be staggered and seating capacity will be limited.

Face masks will be required, with many other health protocols in place.

Theaters in San Francisco could reopen next week if the city progresses to the red tier as expected. Among the films that can be seen in theaters currently are "Tom & Jerry," "The Croods: A New Age," "The Little Things," "Monster Hunter," "Promising Young Woman" and "Wonder Woman 1984."

You can also book private watch parties with up to 20 people for $99.
