MINNESOTA — The state is giving thousand of dollars to movie theaters impacted by COVID-19.

Friday, Jan. 29 was the last day for theaters to apply for the money.

Each theater can get up to $150,000.

Theaters who've lost at least 30% of sales from 2019 to 2020 are eligible.

Theaters in Minnesota had to close twice during the pandemic.


They just reopened early this month.

"The can continue obviously to operate, and hopefully — as quickly as we can — get people back into theaters and watching movies again," said Kevin McKinnon, deputy commissioner of economic development for the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development.

Information on the application can be found online through the department. The deadline is midnight, Saturday, Jan. 30.
