Reopening of cinemas in New York. The cinemas 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, announced on the night of Monday to Tuesday the governor of the State of New York Andrew Cuomo . The reopening will be done with a maximum capacity of 25% of the usual capacity and a limit of 50 spectators per room. 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. New York City is now aligned with the rest of the state, where theaters were allowed to reopen in mid-October. However, some cinemas in the rest of the state have decided to remain closed, believing that a reopening would not be economically viable. The low tonnage, restrictions on the sale of food and drink, as well as the lack of films likely to attract viewers, have thus dissuaded several operators from taking the plunge. The release schedule has been shaken up by Hollywood studios which have postponed the arrival of most big budget movies.
