SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California movie theaters can begin opening later this week if they limit theater capacity to 25% or no more than 100 attendees.
State guidance released Monday adds movie theaters to a long list of entertainment and other businesses that can start reopening as the nation’s most populous state relaxes its stay-at-home order.
Counties that meet certain metrics can start reopening movie theaters, bowling alleys, gyms, day camps, and a handful of other businesses starting Friday.
- San Diego County announces reopening of day camps, campgrounds, and RV parks
- California officials releases guidelines on safely reopening schools
- Gyms, other businesses begin preparing for California's June 12 reopening date
The state recommends movie theaters implement reservation systems and limit seating and suggests moviegoers wear masks.
Film and TV production may also resume subject to labor agreements.
