Movie Theaters Reopening Friday – But is There Anything to Watch?
Governor Cuomo has finally given the green light for movie theaters to reopen starting tomorrow. Of course, there are strict guidelines for the reopening including, air filtration, social distancing, additional cleaning and they will only allow 25% capacity. Currently, only theaters outside New York City are allowed to reopen with the current guidelines.
Regal Cinemas will reopen two theaters in the Capital Region. Regal Colonie Center and Regal Crossgates will start showing movies on Friday, October 23rd. Well, now that the movie theaters are open what are they even going to show? Most of the big blockbuster movies have been pushed back until 2021 and the movie industry has been slow to get back to actually making movies.
Currently, there are only a few potential blockbusters that are scheduled to open in the near future including "Wonder Woman 1984", “The Croods: A New Age” on Thanksgiving, and Ryan Reynolds’ “Free Guy” in December. Those movies could easily be moved back to 2021 and that decision could be based on how many people will come back to the theaters opening this weekend in the Capital Region.
If you're looking to watch something scary for the Halloween season there are a few options for this weekend.
