Cinemas in China will reopen in low-risk areas from July 20, the country’s film administration said on Thursday.

The move comes six months after the cinemas were forced to shut to contain the spread of COVID-19.

However, the resumption of services will face a series of restrictions like limited film showings to mandatory mask use.

Cinema in medium-to-high risk areas, however, will remain shut.

It may be mentioned here that China has seen a sharp decline in COVID-19 case since March and hence it has progressively eased lockdown measures.

Restaurants, shopping malls and even clubs have been open for months now.
