Cuomo Allows Cinemas Outside The City To Reopen On October 23

During a press conference on Saturday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced movie theaters outside of New York City can reopen at 25% capacity, or up to 50 people per screen on October 23rd. We also hear they can sell concessions. This is in effect for all counties with infection rates that are below 2% on a 14-day average.

“We hit 160,000 tests in one day, which is a record number and the highest we’ve ever done. When you’re doing that level of tests you get down to the block level. And then, when you start to see a cluster, you oversample in that cluster, so you get even more data,” said Cuomo. “Beginning October 23, movie theaters outside of New York City will be allowed to reopen at 25 percent capacity with up to 50 people maximum per screen. This is outside of New York City in areas that

The months-long shutdown of movie theaters in New York is set to end — in part — next week.

Movie theaters across the state, aside from New York City, can reopen Friday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Saturday during a briefing. Theaters can reopen at 25 percent capacity, he said, and can have no more than 50 movie goers in front of each screen.

Theaters have been closed for months due to the coronavirus pandemic and are among the last businesses to get the green light to reopen.

  • Assigned seating will be required in all theaters.
  • Social distancing between parties will
