The Rialto Theatre kept us inspired with marquee quotes as the Five Points movie theater’s screens stayed dark since March. Now, it’s among the businesses permitted to re-open under Phase 3 restrictions, which went into effect last Friday.
Bars may also re-open under Phase 3, but only outdoors at 30% capacity. Here’s a list of Raleigh bars and movie theaters re-opening in Phase 3, which will be updated. Send tips, potential additions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
