Grim reading but I fear it makes perfect sense. There is currently a lot of hopeful optimism, businesses trying their best to reopen. But with separation rules in place customers will be limited and it is hard to imagine any business surviving under those conditions.Doug Creutz, a managing director and senior research analyst, has shared a bleak outlook for the future of movie theaters, explaining that there's actually a chance they will remain closed until mid-2021.www.comicbookmovie.com

Judging by this article there might be some release slots opening up for 2021, as the continuing difficulties they’re having with filming and production in Hollywood could see a few movies unable to wrap up in time.Bleak reading but makes sense, the studios want 90% capacity to get their money back.
Be interesting to see what Disney does with Black Widow, there hardly seems to many slots to release it next year. Disney+ anyone?
I've seen 3 films so far at a local Odeon - one new (Saint Frances) and two old (Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and The Goonies) and all of them had about 5 people in the screening including myself. I'm planning to see the Black and White version of Parasite at the weekend, so will be curious to see how many turn up to that.Out of those of you who have actually been to the cinema recently are the screenings full to capacity (after social distancing measures) or just a few people? I ask to get a better picture of whether an audience is returning to the cinema in numbers.
This was the reason for my question. There is a common misconception that the required separation distance is 1m when it is actually 1m plus.
But it actually means separate by at least 2m where possible but if not, you can do 1m plus another form of appropriate protection.
Yeah, it seems there is a common-sense disconnect there.Ive seen several research papers done on contact tracing in restaurants and planes / buses.
People have been infected from well over 2 meters away in enclosed spaces (possibly even more so with air conditioning system)

To sit indoors for 2+ hours with people talking laughing, coughing, sneezing and talking seem's pretty fudgeing dumb to not make people wear masks
