Chunky's released a statement a few days ago that they will be reducing seating capacity in their auditoriums by 50% to keep their patrons safe and ensure social distancing.

They will continue to screen a variety of classic movies and other programming to keep their guests entertained. Like so many businesses, Chunky's is taking a financial hit as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak.

To add insult to injury, at 3:30 am this morning, someone broke into Chunky's in Manchester and pried their safe open. The following images were captured on their surveillance cameras. Obviously it is difficult to decipher any features since the robber is wearing a mask and hood.

Who would do something like this? Many people in the comments section mentioned it could be an inside job as the person clearly knew where the safe was kept. We hope the thief is found.

It is heartbreaking to see our local businesses suffer during these trying times. If you'd like to support your local Chunky's, feel free to purchase gift cards, baskets, or boxes here.
