A breath of fresh air for the sector? Theaters will be able to reopen in New York on March 5, almost a year to the day after their administrative closure due to a pandemic, the governor of New York State announced Monday, February 22. The reopening will be done with a maximum gauge of 25% of the usual capacity and a limit of 50 spectators per room, said the governor.

The decision comes as the number of positive coronavirus cases and hospitalizations in New York City returns to early December levels, the start of the second peak of the pandemic.

However, some cinemas in the rest of the state have decided to remain closed, believing that a reopening with only a quarter of spectators would not be economically viable. The low gauge, restrictions on the sale of food and drink, as well as the absence of films likely to attract viewers, have thus dissuaded several operators from taking the plunge.

There are currently no plans to reopen in Los Angeles (California). In the same state, in San Francisco, the country’s third market, the authorities authorized the reopening in October, but many operators have chosen to remain closed, deeming the conditions imposed too economically penalizing.
