Reopening of cinemas and theaters: what has changed since June 15th
June 15: how will the reopening of cinemas and theaters be
Less than a month to go official reopening of cinemas and theaters: as stated in the new ministerial decree approved by the government, the June 15 the rooms will reopen. (With some potential exceptions for the regions that, in relation to the trend of the epidemiological situation of their territory, may decide to bring forward this date).
The rules set to allow this important step towards the progressive return to normal (if you can call it that), as for the other commercial establishments, they rotate around two fundamental themes: the social distancing and sanctification of environments.
3 months of total closure of all physical places related to this cultural sector, during which the several online platforms who have never abandoned us by offering us a constant offer of films and series. And the news given by Variety according to which Amazon and Netflix are planning to restart filming in France of the series “Voltaire, Mixte” and “Arsene Lupine” which had been abruptly interrupted in March due to the pandemic.
But we missed the rite of cinema however, and the return to this experience will be a precious moment that must necessarily be regulated. For sure we will find ourselves a little disoriented initially, as it happened at the beginning of the phase 2, when meeting friends and relatives we were awkwardly forced to respect new ways of interacting, which ask us to be more restrained and attentive.
Likewise, going to see a show, be it a movie or a concert, will be the distance of one meter is fundamental, which we sadly learned to know, among spectators, dining room staff, but also among artists who will perform, “with the maximum number of 1000 spectators for outdoor shows and of 200 people for shows indoors, for each room “indicates the dcpm.
THE seats will inevitably be to sit and pre-assigned based on this standard, trying to encourage the booking and online payment of tickets. “Events involving gatherings in closed or open spaces remain suspended when it is not possible to ensure compliance with the conditions” as in the case of discos.
Sara compulsory at the entrance temperature measurement to which we are now accustomed, which should not exceed 37.5 ° e the use of the mask is mandatory.
Perhaps also for this reason it will be the sale of food and drinks is prohibited. No more candies, popcorn and chips: in the cinema or theater you will only go to see one show, which will return to being the center of cultural experience.
Another point that must be guaranteed by the dining room staff will be the “”adequate periodic cleaning and sanitization of closed rooms and the toilets of all the places affected by the event, even between the different shows held on the same day “and the” natural ventilation and air exchange and compliance with the recommendations concerning ventilation and air conditioning systems “.
This indication will probably imply a less dense schedule of shows for cinemas, with longer pauses between one film and the next.
Very important rules, rules and attentions to be respected, however, we hope, with the lights off they will not affect the experience and the quality of the vision.
And who knows if in parallel someone will want to re-imagine the romantic drive-in version…
