CMX Chateau Cinema movie theater is reopening in Rochester, Minnesota!

It's been so long since we've seen a movie poster on the outside of the CMX Chateau theater in northeast Rochester.  They closed, just like everyone else when the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

But, when movie theaters had the opportunity to open back up with limited capacity, this one didn't.  In fact, the movie theater and basically all of the locations in Minnesota that were owned by this chain were removed from their website.  What left everyone puzzled though was a graphic on their main page that said "Coming Soon your favorite movie theater will be back".

According to their Facebook page, the movie theater is planning on reopening on September 24th.  The movie experience will be what we remember but there is a HUGE change - their hours.
