Regal Theaters back in business
Kula’s Wendell and Pua Jeremiah pose after buying their tickets for “Wrath of Man” at Regal Cinemas at Maui Mall Friday afternoon. They were two of the first people through the door and said they were happy to see the theater back open. “My husband and I are retired for two years, so it’s something to do during the week,” Pua Jeremiah said. She added that if everybody works together, a return to normal activities is possible. “I try to do my part and I just hope everybody does their part. We all need to take care of each other. If we don’t who will?” Back when he was working as an asphalt paver, Wendell Jeremiah used to take his kids to the movies so he could take a nap in the air conditioning.
