Conveniently located behind Spotsylvania Towne Centre, right off Interstate 95, Paragon Village  is the Fredericksburg region’s premier family fun destination—and its staff are ready to welcome you back with open arms and new offerings.

Paragon opened its unique Chatterbox Dine-In Theater in early August and is currently showing movies in three auditoriums on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

In designing a movie-going experience that is safe as the community continues to take measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Paragon Village has taken the opportunity to reimagine the movie-going experience with our Chatterbox Dine-In Theater.

All ages are welcome in these luxury VIP auditoriums on the second floor before 4PM. The boutique theater experience features the latest in theater technology, from premium electric recliners with foot rests to Sony Digital 4K projection, Dolby Atmos surround sound and the region’s only Extreme theater with laser projection on a 66-foot screen.

As you enjoy this state-of-the-art entertainment experience, you and your family can order delicious offerings from the menu of The Agency Kitchen & Bar directly to your seat.

You’ll find everything from shareable snacks, to gourmet burgers, hand-tossed pizzas and freshly rolled sushi. Adults will appreciate being able to enjoy full-service cocktails, beer and wine.

The Agency Kitchen & Bar opened its doors July 31st. In addition to serving food in the Chatterbox Dine-In Theater and upstairs, guests can eat in The Agency’s completely remodeled retro-chic dining, cocktail and entertainment venue downstairs, co-located with the Penny Lanes luxury bowling destination.

The Agency’s scratch kitchen puts a new spin on “bar food,” offering American favorites, comfort foods with a twist and freshly made sushi all under one roof, with a well-curated list of cocktails and mocktails, beer and wine.

And don’t forget about the cozy Chatterbox speakeasy upstairs. This Prohibition-themed social club is a great option for date night, serving single-malt scotches, small-batch bourbons and a robust cocktail menu.

Reopening safely: At Paragon Village, health is the priority

Paragon Village is excited to welcome diners and moviegoers back to its state-of-the-art theater and new dining experience at The Agency Kitchen & Bar. Paragon has put a lot of thought into designing an experience that is safe and clean for both guests and Crewmembers.

Use the app! A visit to the movies can be practically contactless with the Paragon Mobile App. Purchase your tickets, reserve your recliner and even order your food and drinks ahead of time. All that’s left to do is relax and enjoy the show.

As we come back together, stay 6 feet apart. Floral decals will mark line positions at concessions and the box office to make sure guests stay six feet apart. All guests and Crewmembers will practice social distancing. To enhance safety, plexiglass shields have been positioned for added protection during face-to-face interactions.

Staggered seating. Seating has been staggered in pairs to maintain appropriate physical distancing throughout the auditoriums. This has reduced capacity in the auditoriums.

Face coverings required. To keep everyone safe, please keep your mask on at all times unless you are eating or drinking. Crewmembers will provide masks if you need one. Gloves are also available for both Crewmembers and guests.

Wash hands often. Paragon Village has positioned touchless hand sanitizer stations throughout the theater for all to use. Frequent hand washing and hand sanitizing helps keep us all safe.

Keeping Crewmembers healthy. Crewmembers’ health is monitored, and anyone showing symptoms of illness is asked to stay home. All Crewmembers’ temperatures are taken at the beginning of a shift, to ensure they are under 100.4 degrees. Crewmembers wear masks provided by Paragon during their shirts. They are required to wash their hands, change their gloves and sanitize their work stations every 30 minutes, with timers set for reminders.

Clearing the air. HEPA air purifiers, effective in removing 99.97% of bacteria, virus carriers, pollen and dust from the air, have been placed throughout the facility, covering 5,000 square feet per hour.

Enhanced cleaning. High-contact areas and surfaces are now being cleaned at 30-minute intervals. Auditoriums are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after every screening.
