Russell Crowe, Keanu Reeves, and Robert Pattinson are coming to Casper

For the first time since March, brand new theatrical first-run films are on their way to WyoMovies theatres this week.

There are some big titles on the line-up over the next coming weeks, including Unhinged starring Academy Award winner Russell Crowe, Bill & Ted Face the Music starring Keanu Reeves, Christopher Nolan’s Tenet starring Robert Pattinson, and The New Mutants based on the Marvel comic book series.

It has been quite the dry spell for new first-run films at movie theaters — a real bummer for movie buffs and fanatics of WyoMovies’ unmatched big-screen experience. Luckily, this week’s new films seem to be marking the end of this prolonged movie drought.

“We’re excited about new content. It’s what hooks the community in and drives our business forward,” WyoMovies co-owner Andy Houck said. “We’ve invested a lot of time, money and effort to ensure a safe viewing experience. We’re going above and beyond the state’s safety measures for our patrons. We’re in a great place to reintroduce new titles to the community.”

WyoMovies has been tirelessly working to bring the beloved nostalgic movie theater experience back into our lives with evolving, rigorous safety protocols in place so Casper can safely enjoy a night out at the movies. 

“We surveyed around 1,600 moviegoers, and of those who have been to our locations since we reopened, 99 percent said they were happy with our safety measures. It was a good start, but we didn’t stop there,” Houck said.

Along with physical distancing and other mandated guidelines, WyoMovies has been cleaning with anti-microbe electrostatic protectant spray. Additionally, the company upgraded air systems, doubling fresh air requirements with a specialized, high-grade MERV-13 filter. Read more about these and other safety measures on their website here.

Things have surely changed since February, but WyoMovies is starting to bring back to the memorable aspects of moviegoing.

“Studio City Mesa and Studio East are still our only open locations where we’ve been able to implement these protocols efficiently,” Houck said. “It’s a little different, but we’ve put in extra effort to get the community back to the moviegoing experience we love,” he added. At these locations, many concessions are still safely available (with the exclusion of pucker powder and self-serve yogurt), you can take your family or go with a few friends, and now you can get excited week after week with new movies. 

As of now, here are some scheduled upcoming films:
