I agree with every single point made. Going to a cinema is so much safer than visiting a bar or restaurant.

I live around the corner and would like to see the Rio on the other side of the pandemic along with our cars and restaurants.

In a theatre, as opposed to a restaurant or shop or place of work even, there is no random continual movement. I support allowing the movie theatres to be open if the follow all the Covid protocols.

I believe arts and culture shape the communities of which they’re a part. If we value bars and restaurants to a greater degree, we will all be poorer for it.

There is no reason theatres should be closed. Restaurants, malls, stores are all open, theatres are perfectly capable of enacting social distancing measures and should be treated no differently than other businesses. The lack of scientific evidence to support singling out theatres, makes it appear almost malicious.

What theatres are asking for seem as reasonable as restaurants and bars. Watching movies is passive - no talking etc. It seems like the risks can mitigated.

I believe theatres should be treated like bars and restaurants.
