Written by KingCnote on August 13, 2020
Following five months of shuttered movie theaters, a few hundred will be open this weekend in Canada. Theaters will limit capacity to about one-third with checkerboard seating.
Masks are mandatory for staff and recommended for moviegoers. Concessions are offered from a shortened menu.
Playing on 300 screens will be The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run. Also Unhinged starring Russell Crowe. Ticket sales might reach $1 million.
Unhinged expands next week in the United States to 2,000 theaters. That sets the stage for Disney’s The New Mutants from the X-Men franchise the final weekend in August. Then over Labor Day weekend Christopher Nolan releases his spy thriller, Tenet. (Deadline)
