The Palladium, one of Santikos movie theaters in San Antonio, is set to reopen on Saturday afternoon after a series of undisclosed “technical difficulties.” The company has been grappling with these issues for the past three days, forcing the closure of most of its theaters. However, the Palladium cinema, located on the northwest side, will resume its afternoon and evening showings.
The troubles began on Thursday when Santikos movie theaters announced via social media that all its Alamo City locations would be closed temporarily as they worked to resolve the technical issues. This also meant that refunds for tickets purchased could not be processed until further notice. These closures extended into Friday, coinciding with the release of new films like “Lisa Frankenstein” and “Out of Darkness.” Moviegoers attempting to buy tickets online were met with error messages.
In an effort to address their customers’ concerns, Santikos movie theaters took to social media again on Saturday, expressing their empathy for the inconvenience caused and announcing the reopening of the Palladium. They advised patrons to stay updated through their social media posts for any further developments. Despite KENS 5 reaching out to Santikos’ guest services division for more information, no additional details about the technical difficulties were provided.
As the situation unfolded, Santikos Entertainment, the parent company of Santikos movie theaters, made a post on Facebook reassuring their audience that the closures were temporary and that they would be back in business soon. The post included a link to further information.
