Light up the marquees! Governor Andrew Cuomo will allow movie theaters outside New York City to reopen next Friday October 23rd.
Maybe Regal Cinemas will have a change of heart. AMC Theaters are getting a lifeline tossed to them on the brink of closure.
The theaters will have to adhere to social distancing rules. But so far that’s gone fine in other states, like Connecticut, where Cinemark has done an excellent job of keeping everything COVID free.
New York State’s policy of closed theaters has just about wrecked a lot of businesses. So this is a boon to everyone’s finances. Now we need to get NYC theaters cooking.
NEW: Starting October 23, movie theaters outside of NYC can reopen at 25% capacity with up to 50 people per screen.
There will be mandatory social distancing and other precautions. pic.twitter.com/QKmKvuyTy2
