Even though some states already have begun, with the re-opening of their theaters in the wake of a continuing, worldwide pandemic, a new study suggests the safety policy should be in place before the masses head out for a movie night. In a new study, which is obtained by Deadline, more than 75 per cent of the respondents said that they were likely to return to venues they’ve ever re-opened, should theatres have to follow the popular security protocols. About 12 percent of the respondents said that they were not likely to return, regardless of whether the remaining 13 per cent of those who take part in the study were unsure of their plans at this point in time.
Of those who said that they would return to the theatres, almost all of the group said that the hand-sanitizer stations at the theater, it would make them feel more comfortable in returning for the film. Nearly 80 per cent of the risk-to-return-so-called batch were on board with the theater chains, reduce time-to allow for a more thorough cleaning in between shows, while an additional 75 per cent expressed a wish for the theater staff to wear facemasks.
Interestingly, more than one-half of the positive respondents said they’d be good with getting their temperature taken before entering the theater in an effort to help stop the spread of the new corona virus. Only 5% of the positive respondents said that any new measures were necessary in order to influence their return to the uk.
If the theaters are closer to re-opening, on a larger scale, of a stand-off of sorts between a few of the Hollywood studios and the box office. The controversy is caused by the constant and the treatment of Troll-World-Tour the result was a reported $100 million in its first week, the straight to video-on-demand, in comparison to the theatrical version. Following on from the success of the digital release, will be Universal, and not in the line of films to be shown, following a similar path-a move that upset the movers and shakers at the AMC Theatres.
AMC is quickly imposed a blackout on the world of movies, claiming that the policy will affect all of the Universal films, per se, has entered into force today, and, as in our theatres to re-open it, and it is not an empty, or badly treated, as a threat. By the way, this policy has not only focused on the universality of pique, or punitive in any way, it is going to all the movie makers and the one-sided exit the current window’s practices, absence of good faith negotiations between us, so that they, as a distributor, and we, as an exhibitor have both the advantage and the hurt of such a change. At this time, the pressure in the reaction today, Universal is the only studio that is considering a wholesale change of the status quo. That’s why communication is in the response.”
