In January, the Chinese government decided to close absolutely all places of public leisure, including, of course, cinemas, in connection with the raging pandemic of the coronavirus. As a result, several months of downtime resulted in crazy losses for film distributors – over $ 2.5 billion dollars.
However by the end of this week it became known that China intends to weaken some of the bans imposed, having begun, in particular, to gradually open separate movie theaters. This occurs when the spread of the virus in the country is almost completely under control.
No one has yet specified exact dates, but the government decree states that cinemas can be opened only subject to certain rules: stable disinfection of rooms, improvement of the air ventilation system, limitation of the total number of visitors per day, mandatory wearing of masks and ticket sales only by prior orders.
If everything goes well and movie theater owners can adapt to new realities in a timely manner, then soon this entertainment business will begin its revival, as, for example, was the case with restaurants in China, which began to operate normally for several more weeks back.
