ATTENTION!!! The Wheels & Reels event has been postponed. We keep you informed on the new date for the movie night. Please read the following message from our partners at Flint River Entertainment for additional information:

As a commitment to the health and safety of our employees, guests, and partners, the complex had put into place a detailed and comprehensive reopening plan several months ago. That plan includes temperature checks, screening questions, and face masks for all employees and subcontractors each time they enter the facility, comprehensive cleaning and sanitization, and various policies and procedures related to personnel health and well fare. To uphold our responsibility as managers and in order to comply with our policies, it is with an abundance of caution that we have decided to reschedule the movie events for a later date.
The Wheels and Reels events scheduled for this weekend 7/31 - 8/1 in the Albany Civic Center Parking Lot have been postponed, after an employee of the Flint River Entertainment Complex reported a positive COVID-19 test.
