 Lefty's reopens with renewed vigor • New drive-in theater summer series offers nightly movie classics. Like many other Cape Region establishments that were considered nonessential businesses, Lefty's Alley & Eats near Lewes was forced to close its doors when the COVID-19 state of emergency was declared in mid-March. Lefty's has a new chef and new menu, a new general manager, an upgraded patio, and is offering a drive-in movie theater. The drive-in started June 22 with a sold-out showing of “Rocky.” Other upcoming movie favorites include “Dirty Dancing,” which is sold out, “Beach Blanket Bingo,” “Animal House” and “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” Sunday shows in July will be reserved for streamed Clear Space productions with proceeds going to the organization. Anita Broccolino, director of sales, said it's the first drive-in theater in the state to operate since 2008. “The new drive-in was both an exciting and an important quick-pivot to help us offer entertainment within the proper social distancing parameters and help business rebound.”  Go to www.iloveleftys.com for a movie schedule. https://www.capegazette.com/article/leftys-reopens-renewed-vigor/204005

STATE PARK - Special Update – as of June 30 • New Limits Set for Delaware Beaches • In accordance with Gov. Carney’s goal of limiting interactions among people in Delaware’s beach areas to reduce transmission of COVID-19, the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control announced the following restrictions to be imposed starting on Friday, July 3 and lasting until further notice:
• The number of vehicles allowed in Cape Henlopen, Delaware Seashore and Fenwick Island state parks will be limited to approximately 60% of the parking capacity. When the 60% capacity is reached, all vehicles will be turned away until vehicle volume within the parks is reduced. Vehicle restrictions may be lifted periodically as volume levels are noticeably reduced within the parks. These limits, which will be enforced at park entrances by DNREC Natural Resources Police, will not be managed based on a “one-in, one-out” policy that would encourage lines of waiting vehicles and people.
• At Cape Henlopen, when the main gate is closed to additional vehicles based on parking lot capacity, the closure will include vehicles that have arrived at the park for drive-on surf fishing as well.
• At Delaware Seashore and Fenwick Island surf fishing beaches, NRP officers will monitor the number of vehicles on the beach and will close drive-on beach entrances if vehicles fail to maintain the 20-foot distance between vehicles currently mandated by the Governor’s emergency order.
• Masks or face coverings are required in bathhouse and concession areas of all three parks and strongly encouraged on the beach as well.
• Campgrounds and cabin rentals will continue.

THEATERS

The Cinema Art Theater is now open!  Like many other businesses, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society needs to make sure that our customers feel safe in our venue, and we also need to generate revenue to financially survive.

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society wants every customer to know that we are doing the most we can to provide safety and comfort for our patrons and we ask you to assist with these efforts while enjoying quality films.

Second Street Players • The Board of Directors of Second Street Players (SSP) has announced the CANCELLATION OF THE REMAINDER OF ITS 2020 SEASON of shows, including Main Stage and Children’s Theater productions, and Movies at Riverfront Theater (MaRT). “While it’s disappointing for all of us involved in this great community organization to have to take this step, we must acknowledge the challenges associated with moving forward with our season as planned,” said Guy Crawford, President of the SSP Board. “It would be very challenging financially and logistically to present a show under social distancing restrictions that may last into the fall. The health and safety of our volunteers, actors, crew, and patrons are very important to us and this decision will allow us certainty to plan for the future.” For more information: http://www.secondstreetplayers.com/

Freeman State 2020 SEASON UPDATE: THE STAGE IS SET FOR SEASON 13 AT THE FREEMAN STAGE! The Freeman Stage is moving forward with a special season of the arts, which will have reduced capacity to comply with physical distancing guidelines and will primarily showcase local and regional talent. In addition to local artists, the Young Audience Series — which features free children shows typically held Saturday mornings — will also take place. Because we are starting from scratch in terms of a lineup, there will be a rolling announcement of performances throughout the summer. The first slate of shows will be announced near the end of June, with ticket sales starting soon after. We hope to start the season in early July. Tickets will be sold in groups (or pods) with fixed seating for four provided in each pod. The season will start out with a seating capacity of just under 400 and will be periodically evaluated as the season progresses to determine if any adjustments can be made. There is much work that has to be done now to bring this vision to fruition, but we are thrilled to be able to provide access to live arts experiences this summer. Stay tuned for more information as we will continue to update our patrons as plans unfold. https://freemanstage.org/

Mayor Ted Kanakos said the extension comes 12 years after the first section of trail opened between Chestnut Street and Federal Street.
