California Has Indefinitely Closed Down Movie Theaters Again

California has indefinitely closed down movie theaters again

Last month, it was announced that the state of California was finally ready to re-open movie theaters with the release of their new COVID-19 industry guidance for Family Entertainment Centers. However, Gov. Gavin Newsom has ultimately decided to indefinitely closed down all movie theaters again in the state as well as other indoor operations including bars, restaurants, zoos and museums. His difficult decision comes after a sudden surge of new COVID-19 cases as California records an alarming number of 8,358 new cases within the past 24 hours.

“This virus is not going away anytime soon,” Newsome said in yesterday’s press conference (via Variety). “I hope all of us recognize that if we are still connected to some notion that somehow when it gets warm, it’s going to go away, or somehow it’s going to take summer months or weekends off, this virus has done neither. It’s incumbent on all of us to recognize, soberly, that COVID-19 is not going away anytime soon until there is a vaccine and/or an effective therapy.”

This newest setback for theater chains will definitely affect upcoming new movie releases that are scheduled in August. It has also put high-profile films like Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, Disney’s Mulan, and 20th Century Studios’ New Mutants back in dangerous spots as all films might be facing another potential delay. recommends all readers comply with CDC guidelines and remain as isolated as possible during this urgent time.
