Pike County movie theater set to reopen after pandemic

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) – Riverfill 10 Theaters in downtown Pikeville have set a date to open their doors to East Kentucky movie fanatics and those looking for an escape from reality.

“It’s been almost 14 months,” said Cathy Harris, Director of Riverfill 10. “We’re very happy to get back on track after what happened last year.”

The theater should reopen on Wednesday, May 19 after some final preparations as well as certain necessary precautions.

“Everyone has to be careful,” said Harris. “It’s one of the things that kept us from reopening, but now we feel like things are a little bit safer and there’s light at the end of the tunnel.”

Community members and city officials are excited to see the theater and other local businesses reopen after a year of the pandemic.

“I’m so excited that our theater is reopening and I’m sure the community is excited as well,” said Pikeville Town Commissioner Allison Powers. “I really missed taking my kids to the movies and when I heard the news I couldn’t have been happier.”

Officials also say it’s not just good for the town of Pikeville, but the entire region.

“It’s great for Pikeville that businesses are reopening,” said Powers. “It’s also very beneficial for the surrounding counties who come to eat, shop and, of course, see a movie.”
