movie theaters will be allowed to reopen after being shuttered for close to a year since mid March 2020. We don’t have the details in which shape or form yet.

Hence, if nothing happens today, well, then that’s possible and it’s a continued fight between exhibition and the NY State Governor.
Another sources tells us that it will be three weeks before New York City theaters reopen. Again, let’s see what happens out of this press phoner today.Exhibitors have been shocked that Cuomo hasn’t given the OK yet for New York City theatersafter permitting sporting arenas, amusement parks, in-door family recreation centers, etc. to reopen at capacity limits, as well as allowing New York City restaurants to increase indoor dining capacity to 35% starting this Friday, Feb. 26.
