Movie theaters in New York City can open in March at 25% capacity

After nearly a year of closures, New York City cinemas will be permitted to open on March 5, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday.

Movie theaters in the city will be allowed to operate at 25% capacity, consistent with rules currently in place for locations in the rest of New York State.

The movie theater announcement follows a recent series of moves the governor has made over the past few weeks to reopen the state’s economy. Large New York City arenas like Barclays Center and Madison Square Garden are preparing to welcome a limited number of fans for live basketball games beginning Tuesday.

Last week, Cuomo said indoor family entertainment centers, such as arcades, trampoline parks and laser tag facilities, could reopen beginning March 26 and outdoor amusement parks will be able to return April 9 at limited capacity.

“Governor Cuomo’s announcement that movie theatres can reopen in New York City in the first week of March is another important step towards restoring the health of the movie theatre industry and of our company,” said Adam Aron, CEO of AMC, in a statement.

Aron said the company will reopen all 13 of its New York City theaters on March 5.

Notably, March 5 also marks the day that Disney’s “Raya and the Last Dragon” becomes available in theaters and on Disney+ and Lionsgate’s “Chaos Walking” hits cinemas. Later in March, Warner Bros.’ “Godzilla v. Kong” will also make its debut.
