LODA, Calif. (KCRA) —A Lodi movie theater took action when moviegoers voiced their concerns on social media about bedbugs in the theater.
The Lodi Stadium 12 Cinemas on 109 North School Street is open for business but had pest control conduct a thorough inspection for bedbugs before allowing any patrons inside.
“Our pest control company inspected the auditorium in question this morning prior to opening and found no activity,” Santa Rosa Entertainment spokesperson Catherine DePrima said. “All seats in the area were treated as a precaution.”
Two years ago in August, the theater had to close its doors to exterminate bedbugs in the building.
Since that 2014 incident, the theater has been aggressive about preventing bedbugs at the theater, the management said.
Monthly inspections are done in the theater, including incorporating trained dogs that check for the pests.
Several residents were relieved to hear about the actions taken by the theater management.
“Everybody in the community needs to be on top of it,” Lodi resident Christina Schaaf said.
