Showcase Cinemas will re-open all theaters under the company's "Be Showcase Safe" health and safety program. The program has been developed and certified with J.S.

Showcase Cinemas scheduled to re-open include the following New York locations: Linden Boulevard Multiplex Cinemas (2784 Linden Boulevard, Brooklyn); College Point Multiplex Cinemas (2855 Ulmer Street, Whitestone); and Jamaica Multiplex Cinemas (15902 Jamaica Ave., Jamaica).
